We will provide you with a local telephone number for collect calls, near the Cowansville Institution, for your inmate to call as if it were your original home, work or mobile number. When the inmate calls the local Collect Call number that we issue, we will route the call to your current or any other telephone number without alteration to your existing line. Only two things change in the way you will receive prison telephone calls from Cowansville; the telephone number your inmate dials and the new lower cost of prison calling.
