The Kerr County Jail no longer accepts money orders in the front lobby for Inmate Trust Fund deposits. The jail has installed a new jail ATM in the front lobby. This will allow family members to deposit directly into an Inmate's account. The machine will accept credit/debit cards and also cash. The machine is located in the front lobby of the Sheriff's Office and is available 24 hours a day for your convenience! There is a $3.25 fee for cash deposits and a charge of 10% on credit and debit cards. While we understand these fees are a slight inconvenience we hope that the convenience of 24 hours a day will offset that cost. The Sheriff's Office does not set this fee nor profit from this fee.
