Pursuant to your Open Records Request:

The Jones County Sheriff's Office is currently under contract with Lattice,
Inc. for our inmate phones as well as our video visitation services.
Contract was initiated in February of this year and is an initial 5-year
contract.
Our office makes NO Commission on either phone or video services. Our
Sheriff has always elected NOT to receive commission in the hopes that the
families of the inmates are given better rates.
We therefore have no Financial documents showing revenue generated since we
DON't make a commission.
I have attached a copy of the current contract for Phone services AND video
visitation services.
