About Central Office

Located in District of Columbia, Central Office is a low security facility with an adjacent satellite camp that is considered to be minimum security. Until 2014, both male and female inmates reside at this institution. Due to overcrowding, the female inmates were transferred to another federal institution. First opened in 1940, there were originally several political prisoners housed at the Central Office during World War 2.

Sending Money

The best way to send money to an inmate is through Moneygram. by calling 202-307-3198 or going to the Moneygram website.

Western Union is another preferable option to send money as long as you have the inmate's eight digit register number and the inmate's last name (example: 12345678DOE). You can deposit money by calling 1-800-634-3422 or going to the Western Union website.

While you can send a money order, it will take a little longer than sending money electronically. It is best not to delay in sending money to an inmate, as inmates rely on money to purchase goods in the Central Office commissary store and to make phone calls.

Phone calls

The best way to make sure an inmate can make phone calls to you or another loved one is by ensuring he has money in his commissary account. With that money, an inmate at the Central Office will be able to call anyone is approved on his list. If he has no funds, he will not be able to make any phone calls.

Visitation
