If an inmate is granted a cash bond by the court and is able to post the bond amount, Detention Center staff can receipt the bond payment. If someone outside the Detention Center is posting the bond, they can do this at the Clerk of Courts on Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:00pm. (The Pahrump Court is located at 1520 E. Basin Avenue, Pahrump, NV 89060.) Persons wishing to post a bond outside of those days and hours may use the Inmate Canteen Kiosk, an automated system for accessing inmate accounts (located in the lobby of the Detention Center). The system accepts both cash and credit cards. After posting bond through this Kiosk the individual must notify Detention Staff that the bail has been posted.
To visit an inmate in the Detention Center go to www.inmatecanteen.com or come to the lobby of the Detention Center and use the kiosks there. Public visits take place anytime the inmate is not on lockdown. Visits with family and friends are not contact visits--they are done through the kiosks. There is no privacy and the videos may be recorded, so no one should say anything about the case. Call the jail at (775) 751-7027 for more information.
