This a question posed by many individuals whose families fortunately have never dealt with someone incarcerated in Orient Road Jail, other County jails or state prison. In short, a commissary account is an account in which people from the outside or individuals in custody can put money to buy certain things above and beyond those provided by the county prison or state jail. For example, a commissary account can be used to buy sweets, envelopes to write home, stationery, pencils, deodorant, shampoo, extra food, etc. Many jails and state prisons has special websites now where family and friends of the accused can make payments over the Internet into their commissary account. For example, individuals at Faulkenburg Road Jail or Orient Road Jail in Hillsborough County, Florida, are able to purchase items from cookies to stationary from these accounts.
