The Jefferson Parish Correctional Center (JPCC) allows its inmates to purchase personal items, snacks, and other sundries from its commissary. The inmates must use their own personal funds in order to make these purchases.
Families and friends of inmates are allowed to put money on deposit for use at the commissary. The Correctional Center uses a private vendor to administer the operations of the commissary, including the warehousing and delivery of all commissary goods, and the collection and accounting of inmate funds.
