What are average jail costs per day?

Do many jails charge inmates?


Answer by  Toad24 (7)

No inmates do not pay to be in jail. Americans pay taxes in order to feed the inmates, so your money feeds, clothes and bathes these crooks.

The average jail cost varies per day depending on the location that you are at. Jails do not charge inmates to be in jail but they do make you buy things that you need like toothpaste and stuff.

In California, the cost of housing a single inmate for a day is approximately $137.00. This includes housing, food, clothing, and guards. Most jails are funded by tax dollars, not inmates.
