Getting Money To Inmates Easier
The Montana Department of Corrections has launched a new online service to make it easier for families of inmates to deposit money in the accounts of incarcerated offenders. The inmates will have access to some personal money as an alternative to reliance on the outdated money order. The Inmate Trust Account Deposits Service provides another means for pre-approved family members and other individuals to make deposits into these accounts. Corrections Manager, at the Montana Department of Corrections, Lisa Grady says the service requires depositors to be approved by officials at Montana state prison, where the new service is a pilot project.
