Fayette County Community Corrections Kentucky

Fayette County Community Corrections is the county jail facility for Fayette County, Kentucky.  Located in Lexington, Fayette County Community Corrections is run by the Director, Steve Haney, and the Assistant Director, Jeff Carter.

Fayette County Community Corrections is a local county jail facility, but it does provide some services to inmates that are not typically found in a county-level facility.  It has an Inmate Service Unit.  This unit is responsible for providing adjustment services to the inmate population.  Inmates can request visits from counselors.  Counselors also visit the housing units to speak with inmates who have not requested services.  The counselors are not advocates for the inmates or the administration, but act as a liaison between inmates and the administration.  They are dedicated to upholding inmate rights, but also explaining rules and regulations to inmates to help ease the transition from outside life and life in a correctional facility.

Fayette County Community Corrections also offers Educational and Life Skills Programs.  These programs are designed to address basic needs, which, if left unmet, are likely to result in reincarceration.  They do so by addressing life skills areas that are often not addressed in the inmate population.  The programs include, but are not limited to, GED programs, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, job skills, and parenting skills.

Fayette County Community Corrections also offers a Community Service Program.  This program allows low-risk offenders the chance to participate in community-service type job assignments in a number of divisions, including: sanitation, recycling, police records, sheriff’s office, road cleanup crews, and grounds maintenance crews.

In addition to secular programming, Fayette County Community Corrections offers inmates the opportunity to participate in religious services.  Inmates of all faiths have the opportunity to participate in these services through the jail’s chaplain and through visiting ministries.  In addition, inmates can get holy texts for their religions through the jail.

Fayette County Community Corrections provides different types of recreational opportunities for inmates.  These programs include: exercise, education, and creativity.

Inmates can receive regular mail via the USPS.  All mail is searched for contraband, and the determination of what is contraband is at the discretion of the jail.

While Fayette County Community Corrections does not publish a list of contraband, looking to the rules and regulations that govern other correctional facilities can help you determine what type of mail you can send to an inmate.  Inmates can generally receive typed and handwritten letters on plain paper and small non-Polaroid type photos.  While many jail facilities allow inmates to receive drawings, the content of the drawings may result it in them being labeled contraband.  Any materials that are sexually explicit, pornographic, violent, contain escape plans, contain gang communication, or could be considered incendiary are generally prohibited.

Inmates are usually prohibited from receiving mail with stickers, stamps inside the mail, or any other sticky-type addition to the mail.  Likewise, mail should not have perfumes, lipstick, or other additions to the paper.

Other tips for inmate mail:

  1. Include a complete address and return address on the envelope.
  2. Do not send inappropriate photos.  Inappropriate material includes, but is not limited to: sexually explicit material, nudity, pornography, gang-related information, incendiary material, or any photos that could be used in an escape plan.
  3. The outside of the envelope has to have a complete name and address in the return address.  There cannot be any writing or drawing on the outside of the envelope other than the address and the return address.
  4. Do not use acronyms in the letter, especially any gang-related acronyms.    
  5. Do not send anything to the inmate that is not pre-approved by the jail facility. 

While inmates are allowed to receive published material like books and magazines, they generally cannot get them from individuals.  Instead, published materials need to be sent to the jail from a recognized publisher or from an authorized bookseller.  In addition, the type of books and magazine may be regulated by the jail facility.  Material that is overtly sexual or violent may be prohibited.  This does not only apply to material that falls under the pornography label, but may also apply to material Magazines are permitted, but cannot be of an elicit nature.

Registration begins 30 minutes before start times

Visitation sessions begin on the hour and half-hour.

Four visitors permitted per visit.

Unaccompanied visitors must be 16 years of age; an adult 18 or over must accompany visitors who are under 16.

The same visitor may only visit twice a week.

Visitors must be dressed properly, and proper dress is determined by the Community Corrections Staff.

Failure to follow Detention Center rules can result in termination of that visit and termination of visitation privileges.

All visitors must have a photo ID or other form of identification.

While Fayette County Community Corrections does not post an official dress code, the following types of clothing are generally prohibited in jail visitations: short shorts, mini skirts, tank tops, midriff tops, see-through clothing, mesh-clothing, net clothing, tight clothing, any clothing that is gang related, low-cut tops, provocative clothing, or clothing with racist messages.  In addition, visitors are generally required to wear appropriate undergarments.

Inmate Phone Privileges

Inmates can place outgoing calls, but cannot receive incoming calls.  If you have an emergency and you feel like the inmate needs to be contacted, you can contact the jail, but the jail will not take messages for inmates and generally will not relay information to inmates. They may make some exceptions for specific circumstances and you can contact the chaplain or the shift supervisor if you have those questions.

Securus Technologies provides phone and email services to the inmates at Fayette County Community Corrections.  There are four ways for inmates to communicate with people outside of the jail facility.

Inmates can make collect calls.  The party who accepts the call is responsible for any billed charges, and rates for these calls are generally higher than for calls from outside of the jail system.

Debit calls allow offenders to use their debit accounts attached to their commissary accounts to place calls.

You can send emails to offenders for a fee.  Inmates can respond to those emails.

You can also leave emails for inmates by setting up an account with Correctional Billing Services and activating a private mailbox ID number.

Inmate Trust Accounts / Commissary

Fayette County Community Corrections allows you to deposit money into accounts for inmates to use for commissary.  Offenders can spend up to $100 per week on commissary.  Commissary can be ordered once per week.  The jail also contracts with an outside provider so that people can buy commissary directly for inmates, which will be delivered with regular commissary deliveries.

You can make deposits to commissary accounts by using the kiosks located in the front lobby of the Fayette County Community Corrections Detention Center.  You can access these kiosks 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  You can use cash, debit cards, and credit cards to make these deposits.  There is a fee to make those deposits.  You can no longer use money orders for deposits into those kiosks.  Once a deposit is made, it becomes available to the inmates within 30 minutes.

You can also go online to make deposits.  Fayette County Community Corrections has arrangements with three vendors, My Care Pack, Smart Deposit, and Access Corrections, and you can go online to those sites to make those deposits.  You can use a credit card of a debit card for those deposits.

You can also make deposits on the phone with debit and credit cards by calling 1-899-394-0490.

Bail Information

Fayette County has one of the simplest ways to pay bail available.  You can go online to https://lexingtonbail.governmentwindow.com/bail.html to pay bail for inmates.  You will need the inmate’s number or inmate’s last name.  You can then search using that information to find the inmate.  Once you find the inmate’s record, you can make deposits to pay bail.

At the online system, you can use Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express to pay bail.  There is a service fee for using this online system.  The online system allows bail payments up to $2,000, plus any applicable service fees.  If you need to post bail payments greater than $2,000, you will have to submit documents to prove your identity prior to them being able to process that.  You can call the support team at 855-736-2800 from Monday through Friday, from 8am to 5pm.

It is important to realize that not all inmates will be eligible for bail.  There are several different types of bonds, but two are the most common: cash bonds and surety bonds.  Cash bonds require posting the entire amount of the bond to secure the inmate’s release.  This is more common with smaller bonds.   Surety bonds are bonds that can be secured by posting a percentage of the bond, which may require the services of a bail bondsman.

If you do need to use a bail bondsman, Fayette County Community Corrections will not recommend a bondsman, but you can find one on the Yellow Pages or online.
