- Q: How do I send money to an inmate in a Broward County jail?
- Inmates are permitted to receive funds for deposit to their commissary accounts. Money orders and cashier’s checks may be mailed to inmates (for instructions, see “Guidelines for Inmate Mail”).
To wire transfer funds to an inmate’s commissary account via Western Union, include the following information:
Pay to: Sheriff of Broward County
Code city & state: CANTEEN, FL
Account number: Inmate’s name and arrest number
Attention: Inmate’s name, date of birth and purpose: commissary.
Cash deposits to inmate accounts ARE NOT accepted by mail. Cash may be deposited to inmate commissary accounts at the Inmate Banking desk located in the lobby of the Main Jail Facility. No change will be made. Cash deposits are accepted 7 days a week at the Inmate Banking desk during these hours:
9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Depositors must present the name and arrest number of the inmate and the exact cash amount to be deposited.
