The Commissary is a tax saving program operated by a contractor who supplies all inmate purchasable items. They supply, order, and deliver these items twice a week to all inmates who choose to utilize this privilege.
The “profits” that are made from the sale of items to inmates are used to purchase things that may have otherwise been funded with county tax dollars such as many inmate programs and the law library. The profits are also used to fund the Chaplain’s Office.
