About Prison

The Laurel County Correctional Center in London, Kentucky, is the county jail facility for Laurel County, Kentucky.  The Laurel County Correctional Center can hold between 300-400 inmates.  These inmates may be county, state, or federal inmates.  The jail is run by Jailer Jaimie Mosley.  Kentucky is unusual in that it has a specific jailer position.  Jailers are elected officials, who are specifically selected to handle county-level corrections.

The Laurel County Correctional Center is a three floor facility.  The first floor holds both male and female detoxification dorms and four isolation cells, which are under constant supervision.  The second floor has female inmates and maximum security male inmates.  The third floor is general housing for male inmates.  The third floor includes a designated wing for protective custody inmates and sex offenders.

Jailer Jamie Mosley believes that jailers have to look out for the interests of three diverse groups of people: inmates and their families, tax payers, and staff.  To help ensure staff and inmate safety, he ensures that correctional officers stationed in the jail’s housing units go into the cells on an hourly basis, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those incarcerated in the facility.  Jailer Mosley’s desire is to set the bar high and to turn the Laurel County Correctional Center into one of the state’s leading correction agencies.

Some of the steps that Jailer Mosley has taken to improve health and safety in the jail include: installing cameras in each cell to reduce the number of assaults in the facility; placing both hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap in cells to encourage better hygiene and prevent the spread of sickness and infection; remodeled many cells; stripped down and refinished shower areas to make them cleaner and safer; and tore down and rebuilt the kitchen to improve the facility.  Another improvement to the facility has been the introduction of kiosks in each inmate dormitory which serve multiple functions in inmate communications.  They can be used to visit family via webcam, file grievances, file medical requests, file maintenance requests, and provide inmates with access to a law library.

Jailer Mosley has also reinstituted a re-entry program.  This program is aimed at trying to encourage inmates when they approach release.  This program looks at education, life skills, substance abuse issues, and behavior changes to increase an inmate’s ability to function outside of a jail environment.  The goal is to reduce recidivism and give inmates a fresh start at life once they are released from Laurel County Correctional Center.  In addition, the jail programming aimed at reducing recidivism also focuses on teaching alternative behaviors, which can help increase compliance while incarcerated, reducing the risks to the inmate, other inmates, and to staff.

Jailer Mosley has managed expenses for these improvements by utilizing inmate labor to complete the repairs, resulting in millions of dollars in savings for taxpayers.  He has also been able to pay his correctional officers competitively, giving them annual raises, and providing them with Tasers, uniforms, additional training, and other amenities aimed at helping make their jobs easier, increase job satisfaction, and improving their ability to relate to the inmates.

One of the other improvements Jailer Mosley has made is in reducing the amount of contraband in the facility.  He has introduced a number of programs and organizations in the jail to reduce the amount of drugs and alcohol in the facility.

When an inmate is booked, he or she receives two free five-minute phone calls at intake.  Any additional phone calls must be collect or made through an inmate’s TelMate account.  Once booked, inmates will see pretrial services within 24 hours of intake.  At that time, the pretrial officer will contact the judge and set the inmate’s bond according to the inmate’s criminal history and security risk.  Inmates will remain in custody until bond is posted or their arraignment court date.  There are three arraignment dates each week: Monday at 11:00am; Wednesday at 9:00am; and Friday at 9:30am.  If the inmate is in custody and attends an arraignment, they cannot be released until the clerk verifies their bond/sentence.

Visitation

The Laurel County Correctional Center uses TelMate to schedule visitation.  Visitation is not in-person, but is video visitation.  Inmates use in-cell kiosks to carry out visitation.

Visitation may be scheduled by visiting www.telmate.com.  Visitors have to create a visitation account in order to schedule a visitation. Setting up that account requires providing basic information and a copy of your identification.  You can also use the same system to place money in an inmate’s trust account.  Visitation is 7 days a week, from 8:00am to 10:30pm.  Visits must be scheduled at least 6 hours in advance of visitation.  Inmates must accept a visitation request before the visit is conducted.  All visits are conducted remotely and visitors do not have direct contact with the inmates.  Visitation may be conducted two ways: in a secure visitation are or through webcam home visits.

Inmates may have a minimum of two visits per week, unless the inmate is classified as disciplinary segregation.  Inmates get two thirty (30) minute visits free of charge.  In addition, inmates may be able to purchase additional visits by going through TelMate.  There are two adult visitors per visit.  Children may visit an inmate if accompanied by an adult.

Some professionals, including attorneys, clergy, pastors, the media, and medical personnel, may visit inmates at any time; these visits do not count as a personal visitation.

There are rules that apply to visitation.  Inmates who refuse to register, who are intoxicated, or who have been denied visitation cannot visit.  Inmates will not be granted visitation with any person who is deemed a security threat to the facility, who has a past history of disorderly conduct at the facility, or if an inmate refuses the visit.

Visits may be monitored by staff at the facility.

Inmate Trust Accounts / Commissary

The Laurel County Correctional Center uses TelMate for servicing its inmate trust accounts.  Inmate trust accounts are used to provide money to inmates for commissary purchases.  Commissary, also known as canteen, is how inmates purchase things that the jail does not provide.  The Laurel County Correctional Center maintains a full list of items available through commissary on its website.  These items include, but are not limited to: hygiene items, recreation items, art supplies, snack foods, clothing, writing utensils, and sodas.  Inmates can place commissary orders twice a week.  Commissary orders are delivered Mondays and Thursdays.  To receive an order Monday, an inmate must complete a commissary order by 7:00am Friday morning. To receive an order on Thursday, inmates must complete the commissary order by 7:00am on Tuesday.

To add money to an inmate’s trust account or their phone account, you do so through TelMate.  TelMate has a lobby kiosk available in the jail lobby.  You can use that kiosk to make deposits using credit card, debit card, or cash.  To make a deposit, follow the instructions on the touch screen.  The funds are immediately available for inmate use, and the inmate receives a voicemail letting him or her known that they have received an account deposit.  There may be fees or taxes associated with deposits.  You can also go online to www.pay.telmate.com to make deposits into inmate accounts.  In addition, you may call TelMate at 866-516-0115.

Bail Information

Inmates who are newly admitted to the correctional facility are entitled to two free five-minute phone calls.  All inmates will see pretrial services within 24 hours of entering the facility.  The pretrial officer works with the judge to set the inmate’s bond.  The pretrial services will look at criminal history and security risk in determining bond.  The inmate will remain in jail until bond is set or they are arraigned.  The arraignments days and times are Mondays at 11:00am, Wednesdays at 9:00am, and Fridays at 9:30am.  If inmates are in custody on the date of their arraignment, even if they are released from the facility, the release will not occur until the docket comes back from court and the clerk’s office verifies the release.

Inmates may pay bond in a number of ways.  The most straightforward type of bond is the cash bond.  A cash bond means that the full amount of bond is paid.  The bond is meant to secure the inmate’s appearance at trial; as long as the inmate appears for all set court dates, the amount of a cash bond is fully refundable, regardless of the outcome at trial.  However, if unable to pay the full amount of a cash bond, you may will to secure the services of a bail bondsman.  A bail bondsman charges a percentage of the bond, usually 10%, to promise that a defendant will appear at trial.  This fee is non-refundable and is payable to a bondsman, not to the court.  Bondsmen may require security for their promise.  If a defendant fails to appear, the bondsmen becomes liable to the court for the entire amount of the bond.

The Laurel County Correctional Center cannot recommend the services of a particular bail bondsman, but you can find a bondsman in the Yellow Pages or online.
