How do inmates obtain and use money while incarcerated?

When an inmate is incarcerated, any money they have is taken and accounted for.  This money is placed into an account where it is available for the inmate’s use. Families and friends can also contribute money to an inmate's account.  

The Venango County Prison Board of Inspections has adopted a policy where the inmates are financially responsible for certain services provided by the prison, should they decide to use them. The purpose of this policy is to help them become financially responsible for debts they incur while in the prison and through out their life.
