The Corrections Division is responsible for the operations of adult detentions under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office. The Corrections Division operates the only full-service jail in Ashland County. The new jail was opened February 24th, 2001. The facility is a state of the art modular style jail. With a capacity of 127 inmates and a staff of 34 officers, the jail was designed to meet the needs of a growing Ashland County. The current average daily population is 110, with approximately 1750 people booked into the jail per year.
Being a full service jail requires us to provide many programs and activities for inmates. Some of these are: Alcohol and Drug Counseling, Anger management, Parenting Plus, G.E.D. education, full medical and psychological services, laundry, library and commissary services. Bible study and religious counseling are available as well. Inmates are provided with recreational periods, television and table games. Additional programs are Work Release, Community Service projects and Life Skills training.
This facility complies with all minimum standards as set forth by the Bureau of Adult Detention. The jail has maintained a 100% rating with that bureau for the last 8 years. This is mainly due to a dedicated and professional staff. All staff members must pass a rigorous pre-employment program prior to being hired. In addition, all staff members attend a certificate Jail Academy and a minimum of 24 hours of in-service training each year.
The Ashland County Jail uses ICSolutions for our inmate phone system. ICSolutions phone calls will be $0.21 a minute with a max of 15 minutes per phone call. Inmates can make calls from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. With this system, you will have the option to make a Prepaid Account or a Debit Telephone Account.
When an inmate calls out for the first time, the first minute will be free and if you don’t have an account it will explain over the phone how to set up an ICSolutions account at no cost. All inmate calls will display 419-685-9191.
All accounts must be in the person’s name creating the account and over the age of 18. Creating false accounts will cancel any phone calls. The inmate and or visitor may have their visiting privileges suspended.
All inmates and visitors must follow any court orders.
All phone calls are subject to audio monitoring and recording except for attorney and public defender calls.
Chain dialing, 3-way calling, call forwarding, and/or dialing extra digits is not permitted.
Creating an Account
A prepaid account allows anyone to purchase prepaid phone services to receive phone calls from an inmate. You will designate one specific number to receive calls from the inmate. That number can be a cellphone number, so you can always be reached. This type of account is refundable.
A debit telephone account allows anyone to fund your telephone account. This allows you to call any number that is not blocked by the facility.
A collect call can only go through a traditional wire-line telephone number.
You have 3 ways to set up a free account:
Attn: Customer Service
2200 Danbury St.
San Antonio, TX 78217
(Mailing address is only for cashier checks or money orders. You also must include your name, address, telephone number, facility name, inmates name and inmates Jail ID #)
Inmate voicemail is available to family and friends to send an inmate a 30 second voicemail for $1.00. To leave a voicemail, you can call 419-685-9191. You will need to know the inmates ID # and your Prepaid Account pin.
Attorneys and or public defenders must follow the same procedures as above for setting up phone calls. If an attorney or public defender establishes an ICS account, they must notify the Jail Administrator that an account has been established. The attorney or public defender will then submit on letterhead to the jail administrator their request to have all calls to them non-recorded. Within the letter you must include the phone number that they want approved for non-recording.
If the attorney does not want to accept collect calls and only wants to receive debt calls from inmates, they must still submit to the Jail Administrator a request on letterhead to add their phone number to the non-recorded list.
On rare cases, the attorney or public defender can call the jail and request for staff to notify an inmate to call their number. On special occasions, after a request from their attorney or public defender, inmates can be placed on a county recorded phone to place a call to their attorney.
Family and friends are able to send standard envelopes through the mail to an inmate who is incarcerated. We do not accept oversized envelopes or packages. Packages are only accepted if approved first by the jail administrator.
We do accept newspapers and books sent to inmates only if they are sent straight from the publisher.

Inmate Funds / Commissary
Inmate Fund Accounts
When each inmate is booked in, they will receive a commissary account which is where they will put their funds. Multiple charges may be charged to this account. They may purchase phone time, commissary, vending machine items, etc. This account is also where medical fees, haircuts, booking fees, etc. may be charged to if it applies to or is requested by the inmate.
If an inmate is sentenced, plead guilty or is incarcerated for Probation Violation, they will be charged a $40.00 booking fee.
If an inmate owes money from a previous booking and they have money added to their account, the procedure is as follows: If you owe booking fees or prescription fees, 100% of these fees will be paid before any other fees are paid. After those are paid, 50% of any balance will be used to pay off any outstanding balance an inmate owes while the other 50% will remain in the commissary account for the inmate to spend.
If an inmate has money on their account when they are being released, the money will be released to the inmate on a debit card. If the inmate is being released to another facility, the jail will send the money to the new facility for the inmate.
We accept money orders by mail only. We DO NOT accept personal checks. Cash and credit/debit cards are accepted for the following deposit options below.
