Notify an Inmate of a Death
We are sorry for your time of grief. The more information provided will help this process.
Before we notify the inmate we would like some information.
Name of Caller. Phone number of Caller. Relationship to inmate.
Name of the Deceased, Relationship to the Inmate, Cause of Death, Time of day of death.
Was this death expected or unexpected?
What type of reaction do you think it will cause the inmate when they hear the news?
(so we can prepare for a physical situation or to monitor for suicidal thoughts).
Where did the death happened? Location Residence, Hospital, Nursing Facility, City, State.
Did the coroner pronounce them dead? If Yes the name of the coroner and County?
Is there a listed obituary? Which paper/ publication? Funeral Information?
Leave the information 937-521-2079 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Can an Inmate Attend a Funeral
This is determined by a judge and there is many factors to consider if there is a chance to be release
for a few hours. You will need to have the attorney or public defender who is representing the inmate
to file a motion to the inmate's Judge about a death in the family. (If there is no one representing the
inmate, visit the judges office with the obituary.) You will want to give them a copy or email them a
link to the obituary. The obituary needs to list the inmates name as a relative and also list the funeral arrangement of when and where. If there is no obituary you want to contact the attorney and possibly
want to have some documentation that shows the death of the person as well as the relationship to the
inmate. Again there are many factors that are considered when the Judge makes a decision.
Getting Married in Jail
Unfortunately we do not have the authority to perform marriages in the jail.
Inmate Property Personnel Items
Person picking up property needs to bring their ID to the jail lobby window, ask the Deputy/ CO
requesting to sign for property, fill out a form, and wait for the inmate to sign the form as well.
All of the property (not individual items) will be given to the person picking it up.
Nursing/ Prescription Medication for Inmates
The jail will not accept prescription meds brought from home. If an inmate is currently on a prescription then the jail
nurse will call in the order for another script to the Pharmacy. If someone is arrested at 3PM on Friday and there
needs to be a prescription filled it will be ready Monday Evening. If this is
an extreme medical emergency call 937-521-2096 explaining the issue.
The Doctor would need to approve of an emergency situation.
Medicine is passed twice a day in the morning and evening.
Activities of our organization is listed in this website. We work with many Churches in the community
and have men and women volunteering to reach out and make an impact on our incarcerated neighbors.
We take request for inmates to be seen for prayer and one on one visits. We have donated bibles and
literature that we passed out. Due to Covid restrictions the amount of
those attending church is 6 at this time.
Contact us email@example.com and leave your phone number. Look forward to hearing from you.
