Inmate trust accounts can be used for both commissary and canteen purchases and are a way for inmates to food and hygiene items that are not provided by the Kitsap County Jail, during the period of their incarceration.
Inmate trust accounts are for monies that friends or family members deposit for inmates to use while they are incarcerated. These funds can be used by inmates to pay for commissary and canteen purchases, but not for their telephone services, which are managed by Telmate.
The Kitsap County Jail uses Access Corrections to manage inmate trust accounts. You can make deposits on the internet, through mobile apps, and on the phone.
In addition to managing inmate trust accounts, Access Corrections also allows people to purchase items directly for inmates, rather than depositing money into inmate trust accounts. This gives the depositor control over how the money given to inmates is used. You can also visit this website to send food items and other items to an inmate: https://www.accesscatalog.com/shop/index.html?ProgramID=875.
Inmates will be issued some property upon entering into the jail system, which should be sufficient to cover basic inmate needs. These items include:

-Three pairs of socks;

Inmates are responsible for taking care of the property issued to them and will be charged for any property that is missing upon discharge. In fact, inmates can incur charges in a number of ways, such as by destroying jail property.
Debts incurred by inmates while at the Kitsap County Jail for basic goods and services will be maintained after their release and will be collected from future money received in any inmate accounts. It may also be sent to a debt collection agency for collection after an inmate’s release.
Inmates may have the following items in their possession: addresses and phone numbers on paper; prescription eyeglasses; contact lenses; medically necessary items; hearing aids; legal materials; papers; letters; photographs smaller than 8x11.
Not all inmates are eligible for bail. You can look at an inmate’s individual record to determine whether or not the inmate is bail eligible and the amount of bail for each charge, as well as the court of jurisdiction. However, inmates who are eligible for bail can be bailed out 24 hours a day at the jail.
Bail can be paid at the Reception Area, which is located on the second floor of the jail lobby. An after-hours entrance is available after 10:00 P.M. via the intercom located at the main jail entrance.
Bail can be posted in a variety of ways, including: cash, cashier checks, or a bond from a bail bond company.
If bail is paid with a Cashier checks, the check must be made out to the court of jurisdiction over the defendant’s case. DO NOT make out the cashier check to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.
The purpose of bail is to guarantee that a defendant will appear in jail. Therefore, when cash bail is posted, it is possible that the person paying the bail will receive the money back once the person that is bailed out has completed their court appearances. Refunds are handled by the court of jurisdiction over the defendant’s case. The Sheriff’s Office does not refund bail monies.
If you need to use a bondsman, you can find authorized bail bond companies in the yellow pages under "Bail Bonds." Bail bond companies charge a non-refundable fee for writing bail bonds.
The bond process is not instantaneous. After bail has been posted, it can take up to 6 hours before an inmate is released and usually takes at least 2 hours. How long it takes for an inmate to be released depends on factors like the day of week, time of day, and the number of other releases being processed.
Once released, individuals will exit the jail out of the glass door in the northeast corner of the jail and Sheriff’s Office entrance immediately behind the county courthouse.
