NOBLE COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - Inmates at the Noble County Jail could soon be able to text behind bars.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, the Noble County Sheriff's Department said Malia Hurst of Combined Public Communications and Sheriff Max Weber are examining phones that can be issued by inmates incarcerated at the Noble County Jail.
It's part of a program called, "Chirping." Sheriff Weber initiated the program with Combined Public Communications to allow inmates to have contact with people outside of the facility.
The phones would only allow inmates to text, and they can use their commissary to pay for usage.
