Upon committal to Marengo County Detention Center, inmates will surrender any and all forms of money in their possesion. While incarcerated, inmates can use this money to purchase items from the commissary, or release it to an outside source. After release from jail, inmates may return in seven to thirteen days to obtain the balanced owed to them. The days and times available for funds pick-up are designated by the commissary officer and are subject to change at any time.
