The Jail Commissary has a wide variety of items for sale to inmates, including board games, snack foods and pharmacy items. Money can be placed on an inmate's account either by mail or in person at the Inmate Records counter. Cash, money orders, or cashier's checks are accepted at the counter, but money mailed to the jail must be in the form of money orders or cashier's checks made payable to Santa Barbara Sheriff's Custodial Account. Be sure that the inmate's name and county ID number (CID) are written correctly on the money order or cashier's check. NO PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
We have a special arrangement with Western Union to allow for the transfer of money via the Quick Collect Service. The Quick Collect Service is a fast and easy way to get money put on an inmate's account, because it ensures same-day delivery. To use the Quick Collect Service, follow these steps:
1. Call 1 (800) 325-6000 to locate the Western Union Agent location nearest you.
2. At the Agent location, fill in the blue Quick Collect Payment Form completely, including the following information:
Pay to: Santa Barbara County Jail
Code City: COMMISSARY
3. Be sure that the inmate's name and County ID number are correctly written on the form.
Letters mailed to inmates must contain the inmate's booking number as part of the address. The jail will not accept certain items through the mail. Restricted items include packages, homemade greeting cards, Polaroid photographs, obscene or pornographic materials, personal checks, postage stamps or stamped envelopes, any type of food, and books or periodicals not directly sent from the publisher. Mail should be addressed in the following manner:
