Beware of scams targeting people in jail and family members

We have been alerted to a scam where people contact family members claiming they can have someone released to Electronic Home Detention in exchange for payment. Do not provide money, pre-paid cards, or personal information if you receive a call or message of this kind. You can reach King County jail customer service directly at 206-296-1234.
