Inmate Trust Fund Deposit Guidelines

Funds may be deposited in an inmate’s trust fund account in the following manner

  1. There is a Kiosk in the Visitation lobby where you can deposit money to an Inmates Trust Fund with a credit card, debit card, or cash by using the Tiger Commissary

  2. Click “Send an inmate a gift”. This also allows money to be deposited into your trust fund account.
  3. Select a state.

  4. Select a county/parish. (Chambers County)

  5. Select a facility. (Chambers County)

  6. Choose a name from an alphabetical list.

  7. Provide the inmate information. Make SURE your friends and family have your correct Inmate Number, as this is how the funds are credited to your account. No refunds, credits, or transfers will be issued if the wrong inmate is selected.

  8. Complete the credit card information.

Tiger Commissary charges a fee of 10% of the amount deposited as a fee for the program. This money DOES NOT go to Chambers County, nor is it set by Chambers County. Tiger Commissary limits deposits to a maximum of $150 per transaction, and $500 per 7 day week. Chambers County DOES NOT operate the Web-based deposit system, it is simply provided as another means for you to receive funds other than by mail. ALL disputes regarding credit card transactions are the responsibility of Tiger Commissary.

Visitation Protocol
All visitors must be properly attired.

Each visitor over the age of 16 must present a valid PHOTO identification issued by the
Texas Dept. of Public Safety (Driver’s license or ID card), or any other U.S. state or Federal
government identification, or a VALID passport. No person will be allowed to visit without
one of the noted forms of identification.

All children MUST remain under the supervision of the adult visitor. If your children
become unruly and disturb other visitors, your visitation may be terminated and you may be
asked to leave.

All visitors must check in with the Receptionist or Control Room Jailer before visiting. Any
person found in visitation who has not registered with the jail will be removed from the
visitation area.


Notice to Visitors


No personal property will be allowed into the visitation area during visiting hours.

The only item that will be allowed will be your personal identification used to establish your identity. All other personal property must be left in your vehicle, or given to someone outside the visitation area. We do not store personal property of visitors.

Violation of this policy will result in the immediate termination of your visit. The possession of any cellphone in the visitation area will result in the immediate termination of your visit, and may result in the suspension or revocation of your visitation privileges.

Visitation is a privilege, not a right. Please follow our procedures, and protect your privilege.
