- At the time of admission, inmates are given a personal money account. Any cash in the inmate's possession at the time of admission is placed in their account, as are other funds received during while detained at this facility.
- To be declared indigent an inmate must have $1.99 or less in their account for a period of seven (7) consecutive days or longer.
- All inmates (except for Contract Inmates and State Inmates incarcerated as a witness) are charged an initial per diem fee upon intake and daily subsistence fees pursuant to F.S.S. 951.033. The subsistence fee will not be charged nor a lien placed for subsistence to Inmates with less than the established fee in their account. We will collect 100% of all subsistence fees applied if you have the available balance to support the fee. This would include taking the entire amount charged from the inmate's available commissary fund. Inmate Workers are not charged the daily subsistence fee. All other fees are applicable and are posted in the housing unit.
- Inmates without funds will carry a negative balance for all fees except subsistence. The inmate is responsible for expenditures made by the facility on their behalf. When the inmate has a negative balance, half of any funds received will be used to satisfy the negative balance. The other half can be used to purchase commissary. If the inmate has medical fees, the entire amount of the medical charge can be collected from available funds in the inmates account. Medical charges can be posted anytime after the date of service and will be collected from available funds. If the Inmate does not have funds available, the medical charge will be applied as a negative balance.
