The Barry County Jail is now accepting credit and debit cards to purchase inmate phone cards or to pay a cash bond.
Credit and debit transactions will be handled through GovPayNet at www.GovPayNow.com or by calling 888-604-7888. Consumers can post a cash bond or purchase up to five inmate phone cards within a seven day period or pay at the jail. GovPayNet accepts Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover and debit cards. A service fee is charged for each transaction.
"I believe this will help those who pay for a cash bond easier and quicker," said Barry County Sheriff Mick Epperly. "This will be especially helpful if it is needed during hours the bank is not open."
