TN launches new fee collection service for offenders on parole or probation

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (WRCB) – The Tennessee Department of Correction has launched an automated fee collection system to help streamline services and accountability.  

Offenders on probation or parole can now pay their court ordered fines, fees or restitution online or by phone.

Family and friends of inmates can now make deposits into trust fund accounts through the automated system.
 
"As part of the top to bottom review of our agency, we determined an automated system would increase efficiency and free up our probation/parole officers to spend more time in the community supervising offenders," Commissioner Derrick Schofield said.
 
The vendor, JPay, is providing the service at no cost to the state. A convenience fee is applied to online and phone payments and deposits.

The free option still exists for those who prefer to purchase and mail money orders. For more information visit www.tn.gov/correction.
