TELEPHONE CALLS

Inmates are not allowed incoming calls. They have access to a telephone once they have been moved to a housing area within the jail facility. All calls out-going are collect calls. Depending on the individual inmates classification, they may be allowed to purchase a calling card to use within the facility. These calling cards are only usable through the jail facility phone system. Calling cards purchased from outside vendors will not work on the jail phone system.

If you are requesting to block calls from the Wood County Jail, listen to the directions from the operator at the time the call is received. If problems continue you may contact the Wood County Jail and request a block placed on your telephone number. This prohibits any calls coming into your telephone number from the jail facility.
