Telephone Calls

Inmates are not allowed to receive in-coming telephone calls or messages. During regular dayroom hours, inmates may use the cellblock collect phones. Each phone call is limited to 15 minutes to allow equal access to the phones by all inmates in that cellblock. The Pennington County Jail contracts with a specialized phone company to handle inmate phone accounts called Lattice. Inmates are able to purchase phone minutes through the jail commissary to call out of the facility.  Below is a listing of the current phone rates.  To create a prepaid account for an inmate through Lattice, please call 1-888-843-1972.
