Combined Public Communications and the Cheyenne County Jail can provide an option to inmates to rent an inmate Chirping Device. The Inmate gets a dedicated phone number and device to directly Chirp friends and family. When the inmate gets the device they may send 5 free automated messages each day for the first 3 days of possession of the Chirping device. These automated messages will inform the person the inmate Chirped who is sending the Chirps and the facility they are Chirping from. It will then ask them to go to a direct link to the inmate's account on the inmatesales.com website. The inmatesales.com website will instruct them to use a credit card to put money on the inmate's account. If the inmate has not been successful on obtaining money in 3 days, they will have to return the device to facility staff.
