The Puyallup City Jail is a 51-bed facility that houses misdemeanor male and female adult offenders from the local region.  Inmates housed at the Puyallup City Jail have regular access to a medical provider, Religious and Alcoholics Anonymous programs, and release planning resources. We strive to ensure the safety and security of the inmates, jail staff, and visitors at our facility.

  1. Inmate Phone calls

Inmates are allowed to make two free phone calls after the conclusion of the booking process. All subsequent phone calls by inmates are collect calls only. Inmates are not able to receive incoming phone calls, and corrections staff will not pass messages to inmates. Exceptions can be made for attorneys, clergy, or medical/mental health officials.

How to accept a collect phone call from an inmate

If you are unable to accept a collect call from an inmate (most mobile phones do not allow you to accept an incoming collect call), you must set up an account with the Jail’s phone service provider at www.CTEL.us or by calling 1-866-430-0561. Notice: This account allows YOU TO RECEIVE a collect call from an inmate but DOES NOT allow an inmate to call other phone numbers.

How to block calls from an inmate

If you are receiving unwanted phone calls from an inmate, please contact the Puyallup City Jail directly at 253-841-5425 to have your number blocked.

Technical Support

If you have technical or billing issues related to the phone system, please visit our phone service provider’s website at www.CTEL.us or call them at 1-866-430-0561.

Notice: All phone calls are recorded and subject to monitoring by jail staff (except those calls with legal privilege, i.e., attorneys).
