Intake Procedures / Accounts / Fees

When you or someone you know is arrested, the money the inmate has on them at that time will be deposited into an account, less a $20.00 subsistence fee. The defendant may then withdraw from the account to purchase items from commissary, have elective medical / dental treatment. All other property that enters the facility will be itemized and stored until the defendant's release. Any item of property that can be used as a weapon is not stored at the facility. If the arresting officer retains any property as evidence, that property will be stored at the Sheriff's Administrative Office (Evidence/Property Division) located at 250 E McCollum Ave, Bushnell, FL 33513.
