Inmate Telephone Service

Fremont Detention Facility Inmate Telephone Services

The Fremont Police Department has contracted with Telmate to provide inmates and their family and friends with easy-to-use inmate telephone calling services at affordable rates.

Purpose

To help the inmates stay connected with the outside world, Telmate provides the following multiple calling options:

1. Collect Calls - Inmate places a collect call that is accepted and paid for by the party they are calling (e.g. the friends and family members). Note:  Inmates CANNOT make collect calls to cell phones, business phones or numbers that are blocked from receiving collect calls.


2. Prepaid Calls
– Prepaid call accounts are set up by the called party (e.g. the inmate’s family/friends.) to eliminate the problem of collect call blocks. Inmates can place prepaid calls to cell phones; office phones, hospitals and other commercial phone numbers that normally do not accept collect calls. When an inmate calls the end user, the call charges are deducted from the called party's prepaid account.  To receive prepaid calls, Inmate Family/Friends and others can easily and quickly set up prepaid call account by one of these methods:

a. Calling Telmate toll-free at
1-866-516-0115
b. Via Telmate’s Website.


Note: Telmate allows a ONE-TIME ONE-MINUTE complimentary free call between the inmate and the called party when the number that the inmate is trying to call is blocked from receiving collect calls.

Pre-Paid Phone Time

Family and friends can also add money to an inmate’s trust account, which he/she can then use to buy pre-paid phone time, in the following ways:


a. Online by visiting the website.

b. Toll free by calling:
1-866-516-0115
c. Facility kiosk – located at the Fremont Detention Facility lobby - map

Telmate's Inmate Telephone Service allows you to block your number so that inmates at the Fremont Detention Facility cannot call your number.
