Except in the case of verified life or death emergencies, staff members will not pass messages to inmates. All information will be verified before any message is delivered. A supervisor will contact doctors, hospitals, funeral homes, etc. before passing a message to an inmate. To speed the process, please have this information (contact persons, phone numbers, etc.) available before you call. For emergency messages, call (252) 902-2670, explain your dilemma and ask for the Shift Lieutenant.
