Deposit money to an offender’s fund account for commissary purchases and phone calls in any of the following ways:

Phone System Change: New way to connect with your loved one through ConnectNetwork
Effective March 25, 2024, Lafayette Parish Correctional Center will be changing inmate telephone systems to ViaPath ConnectNetwork. To receive calls, you just need to create an AdvancePay® account through ConnectNetwork.

If you currently have a gettingout.com account that will still be necessary for tablet services. You can also fund your incarcerated family member’s or friend’s trust account to allow them to purchase phone and tablet time.

It is simple. When you place money on your AdvancePay phone number, your incarcerated family member or friend will be able to call you using the funds from the balance in your prepaid account.

Deposit Funds with AdvancePay
The easiest and fastest way to make a deposit is online in your ConnectNetwork account or over the phone at (800) 483-8314.

Connect on the Go!

The free ConnectNetwork mobile app provides quick access to our most popular services, making it easy to send support to your loved one wherever and whenever you want!

Available to download today for both Android and iPhone devices.

Offender Phones
This facility’s offender phone system is provided by the offender communications system. Only offenders may initiate phone calls. If you wish to contact an offender, your options are to call 1-866-516-0115 and leave the offender a voicemail (up to 3 minutes), send a secure message via: https://web.connectnetwork.com or the ConnectNetwork app, write a letter, or schedule a video visit with the offender during visitation hours. See offender visitation for more information on video visitation.

Phone Calls
To call you, an offender simply dials your phone number. When receiving a call, you should first hear an announcement from an automated operator, such as “You are receiving a call from [offender name], an offender at Lafayette Parish Corrections. Press one (1) to accept.” If the offender has no calling funds and is calling you for the first time, the call will be free for a brief period of time (often less than a minute). This is to allow the offender to inform you of where he or she is and to explain how calls work from this facility. After this short call, the offender will be placed on hold and you will be presented the opportunity to:

1. Pay (via credit card) to continue the current call.

2. Deposit funds for the offender to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to make future calls to any number.

3. Deposit funds to your own phone number to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to call your number in the future, but the funds will not be available for calling other numbers.
