The Union County Jail has been around for over 100 years. The Union County Jail is in Jonesboro, Illinois.

On July 1, 2009, the original Union County Jail closed its doors for the last time. This original Union County Jail was in use for over 100 years. Throughout those 100 years, the Union County Jail was in constant operation.

It took nearly 8 months for the Newton County to officially pass a bond issue that would allow the Union County the money and design elements to officially start constructing a bigger and better Union County Jail.

The bigger and better Union County Jail was fully done and operational in August 2014.

Calling the Union County Jail to find out information on an inmate is a thing of the past now. Now, you can easily locate information on an inmate within a few minutes.

The Union County Jail keeps its updated inmate roster available on the web for the general public to search through. In order to search through the database, you can need to know the full name of the inmate.

Keep in mind that the inmate roster is not updated in real-time, so if an inmate was just transferred to the facility, it will take a few hours to a few days before they officially show up in the inmate roster.

You can always contact the Union County Jail as well to get the most updated information on inmates.

Send a Mail/Package

If you would like to stay in touch with an inmate in the Union County Jail, you can easily do so by sending them letters.

Sending letters to your loved ones in the Union County Jail is the most cost-effective way to stay in constant communication.

You should always remember that anything and everything you send to the Union County Jail will be closely examined for contraband and thoroughly read. Do not say anything you would not want someone else to read.

All mail that you send to the Union County Jail should have the inmate name and the inmate identification number along with your return address.

Sending Money

The Union County Jail uses JailATM to allow the families and friends of inmates to deposit money in their commissary and phone accounts.

The JailATM is like the popular JPay service. You will incur a service fee for using the service, but the funds will be deposited into the inmate's accounts typically within the same day.

You will be able to deposit funds over the phone and online as well. This makes it easy for you no matter where you are or what you are doing.

Phone Calls

Inmates are not completely cut off from communicating with their loved ones outside of jail. The Union County Jail wants inmates to continue talking to their family and friends and have a support system when they leave the facility.

Inmates will be permitted to make collect calls to their loved ones. Collect calls will incur a charge that is the recipient's responsibility to pay. When an inmate makes a collect call, they will only be allowed to call landline numbers as cell phones do not support collect calls.

All calls are limited to 15-minutes. There can be absolutely no use of any sort of call features such as call waiting, three-way calling, or call forwarding.

Visitation Rules

To visit an inmate, you will need to contact the Union County Jail directly. The Union County Jail can then set you up with an appointment to visit the inmate along with everything you need to know or do prior to coming down to the facility for your first time.
