Sending Electronic Messages

Davidson County is partnering with GTL to offer inmate family and friends the ability to send electronic messages that can be received by inmates on personal, handheld tablets within our facility. The GTL Inmate Messaging application is now live.

Initially, this service will be piloted at the ORC so only inmates housed in this facility will be able to read and respond to messages. During our pilot phase, all messaging services will be free so it does not cost you anything to send a message and the inmates will be able to respond for free as well.

To register for this service, you can log into your existing account on ConnectNetwork or create a free account by clicking the Sign Up Now button. Make sure that you add Davidson County, TN as a facility to your account.

Once you log into your account, click on Messaging service from the left menu. You will need to add the inmate as a Contact. Once the inmate has been added, they will receive a notification that they have a new Contact. At this time, you can begin sending messages back and forth. Please keep in mind that inmates will only be able to send or receive messages while they are at ORC during our initial 3-week pilot period. After that time, the standard messaging rate of $0.25 will apply to all messages being sent.
