The Douglas County Jail uses Encartel's CIDNET Connectivity Suite for Corrections to connect inmates with their friends and family. In order for the system to work, you must sign up for a CIDNET account
All inmates who are not otherwise restricted, have access to a phone and may make pre-paid or collect calls to non-blocked phone numbers. Phone calls are limited to 20 minutes each. Inmates with money in their inmate trust account can use those funds to make phone calls.
Phone calls, except for those made to the inmate's attorney and verified clergy members, are recorded
