Inmate Information
Medical Care
Emergency medical care is available 24 hours per day. Psychiatric services are also available. Nursing staff is on-duty when applicable on site or can be reached during an emergency.

Inmates requesting non-emergency medical care may sign up for sick call at any time by contacting a detention officer and requesting a sick call form. Sick call is conducted on a regular basis. Inmates are assessed a $10 co-pay for non-emergency medical services. No inmate is denied medical care due to an inability to pay. Inmates are not charged co-pay fees for emergency medical or mental health services.

Federal regulations limit our ability to disclose medical information, even to family members. Please understand our refusal to discuss an inmate’s medical condition or treatment.

Trust Fund
Certified checks and cashier checks can be mailed to inmates at the detention facility. The checks must be payable to the inmate (the name under which he/she is booked). You can mail a certified check or money order (no cash will be accepted in the mail) to:
Hoke County Detention Facility
P.O. Box 300
Raeford, NC 28376

Persons may also bring cash (no coins), money orders, certified checks, and/or cashier checks to be Hoke County Detention Facility between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday (except for holidays).

Inmate Telephone
Inmates cannot receive incoming telephone calls. Under normal circumstances, inmates are allowed to make phone calls through the Inmate Telephone System. Calls are generally allowed during an inmate’s recreation time. Inmate phones are not owned or operated by Hoke County Detention Center. An outside vendor provides this service. The Hoke County Detention Center monitors and records all telephone calls made on the inmate telephone system. All calls are “collect” and three-way calling is prohibited. Calls are limited to ten minutes. To report billing problems, poor service, to block a number or to trouble shoot a blocked number, call SECURUS at 800-844-6591.

All charges are consistent with N.C. Utilities Commission regulations. If you find the inmate telephone system too expensive, we encourage you to use the U.S. Mail. Most inmates enjoy receiving mail and having frequent contact with family member and friends.

Inmate Mail
Inmate mail should be sent to the address listed above. It should have a return name and full return address, and be addressed to the inmate using the same name and spelling under which the inmate was booked.

If mail regulations are not followed or items of contraband are found, the entire envelope (along with contents) will be returned to the sender or turned over to a law enforcement agency. Mail is normally distributed within 24 hours, except weekends and holidays. Paperback books and magazines will be received from a book club, mail order bookstore, or directly from a publisher only. Paperback books or material that contains obscene pictures racist or “hate” material, incites violence, rape, homosexual sex or sodomy, or that otherwise compromises the safety, security, or proper order of this facility will be confiscated and/or returned to the sender. Materials depicting human nudity are not allowed in the Hoke County Detention Center. Fragrances are prohibited. Envelopes may not be decorated with hand-drawn art nor contain glitter, crayons, or paint. Gang symbols and colors are prohibited.

Our staff will open general mail outside of the presence of the inmate. All mail will be closely examined for contraband, read and under some circumstances, withheld from the inmate and turned over to the detention captain. General mail may contain the following items only:
  • One greeting card (no larger than 5 inches by 8 inches)
  • One page reproduced or copied from a mass produced item such as a book or items from the Internet
  • Up to ten pages of person-to-person correspondence (handwritten or typed)
  • Two small newspaper clippings
  • Five photographs (4 inches by 6 inches)
  • A certified check or money order

Do not send cash. Musical greeting cards will by deactivated. Polaroid photographs are prohibited.

Jail Commissary
The jail commissary is not owned or operated by Hoke County. An outside vendor is responsible for its operation and prices. Prices are consistent with local retail outlets. An inmate must have sufficient funds in his trust fund account to order commissary items. Inmates are provided with three nutritious meals daily. Indigent inmates are provided with basic hygiene items, writing materials and postage.

Except in case of verified life or death emergencies, staff members will not pass messages to inmates. 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 person, phone numbers, etc.) available before you call. For emergency messages, call 910-875-5113, explain your dilemma and ask for the lieutenant.
