Cumberland County Detention Center Additional information:
Collect calls are made when an inmate places a call which is accepted and paid for by the receiving party (the inmate’s family or friends.) Note: Inmates cannot place collect calls to cell phones, business phones, hospitals and many other commercial phones numbers or to telephones that are blocked from receiving collect calls.
Prepaid calls are set up by an end user (the inmate’s family or friends) to eliminate the problem of blocked calls. Inmates can place prepaid calls to cell phones, businesses or numbers that are blocked from receiving collect calls. When the inmate calls the end user the costs of the call are deducted from the called party’s prepaid account.
To set up a prepaid account or if there are problems or questions about the inmate telephone system you may call Global Tel Linkat 1-866-230-7761 or 1-877-650-4249. You may contact them from 8:00 AM to midnight Monday through Friday and from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
