CCM Long Beach Additional information:
We extend telephone privileges to inmates to help them maintain ties with their families and other community contacts. Third-party or other alternative call arrangements are not permitted ensuring inmates do not have the opportunity to use phones for criminal or other inappropriate purposes.
Who Pays? Ordinarily, the inmate pays for the calls; but in some cases the receiving party pays.
Restrictions Limitations and conditions may be imposed upon an inmate's telephone privileges to ensure they are consistent with our correctional management responsibilities.
Monitoring A notice is posted next to each telephone advising inmates that calls are monitored. Unmonitored calls to attorneys are permitted in certain circumstances.
Electronic messaging has become a standard form of communication within most American homes and businesses, and it can now be used to help inmates stay connected to their families. The Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System (TRULINCS) application enables electronic messages to be exchanged between inmates and the general public in a secured manner. With the inmate's eventual release, maintaining family ties will improve the likelihood of a successful reentry into the community, thus reducing the potential for recidivism.
Who Pays? No taxpayer dollars are used for this service. Funding is provided entirely by the Inmate Trust Fund, which is maintained by profits from inmate purchases of commissary products, telephone services, and the fees inmates pay for using TRULINCS.
Restrictions Each inmate must be approved to use the system and each person that an inmate wants to communicate with must give their permission to do so. Inmates access to TRULINCS is controlled and inmates do not have access to the internet. Messages can only contain text and no attachments are permitted. Message size is limited to 13,000 characters (approximately two pages worth of text).
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
