Default Cost to inmates at Essex County prison

I have a son who was recently assigned to Essex county jail. Do they charge the inmates for the things like soap, toilet paper tooth paste, when they first arrive? And do they charge the inmates money for every day they spend in prison???? Its just such a shame that they don't let you know how things work.

Most county jails will give basic necessities to offenders. If I am not mistaken, the state of NJ charges for what they hand out. If there isn't any money on they're account they will apply the balance owed and collect it the next time money is put on their books.
