Phone Calls

Youth Detention Facility residents may make free phone calls from pay phones located in each living unit during open recreation periods.  Phone use may be limited to ensure all youth have the opportunity to use the phone. The maximum time for a phone call is 15 minutes.


Each resident may write and receive an unlimited amount of mail. Mail includes letters, and cards. Postage for all outgoing mail is paid for by YDF. All incoming and outgoing mail is opened and inspected for contraband with the resident present.
