RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. — Collect call rates from Riverside County jails are among the lowest in the state, officials said, and provide $2 million annually for inmate program funds.
The county is entering the second year of its most-recent contract with Global Tel*Link, the private company that facilitates phone service for most of the state's correctional facilities.
