Inmates cannot receive incoming telephone calls or messages. In case of emergencies, inmates will be notified and be allowed to make an outgoing call. Absent disciplinary restrictions, an inmate is free to place phone calls daily from approximately 9:00 A.M. until 10:00 P.M. The recipient of any inmate collect call from the jail will first hear a recorded message that details how such a call may be accepted or declined. The calling inmate is not connected to the call recipient until the call has been accepted. If you are receiving unwanted calls from an inmate, you may block further calls by following the prompts at the time you receive the call or by contacting the Anoka County Jail at (763) 323-5102.
