Wabash County Probation Department Announces Credit & Debit Card Payment Options for Probation
Beginning March 13, 2015, consumers who wish to make payments to the Wabash County Probation Department may do so using GovPayNet®. GovPayNet accepts the major credit, debit and prepaid debit card brands for payment 24/7 on-site, online (www.GovPayNow.com) or by phone (1-877-EZBAIL5). Cardholders can make payments on their own behalf or on behalf of friends or family. They need only have some basic information about the Defendant, including Cause Number, Date of Birth and Address, information that the Wabash County Probation Department can provide prior to the cardholder contacting GovPayNet. For added convenience, GovPayNet’s dedicated, bilingual Criminal Justice Payment Specialists are available around the clock for cardholder assistance.
Cardholders pay a service fee at the time of their transaction. There are no charges to the Wabash County Probation Department for participation in the GovPayNet service.
GovPayNet accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover®.
GovPayNet, based in Indianapolis, is a category leader in processing bail and bail-related payments by card to Courts and incarcerating agencies. More than 500 corrections systems nationally rely on GovPayNet to process bail and other criminal justice payments, which account for the majority of the nearly $200 million in payments the company handles annually for government agencies.
“Making GovPayNet’s services available is an excellent opportunity for the Wabash County Probation Department to be at the forefront in offering a convenient, flexible way to pay government obligations and improve probation supervision services,” noted Sarah Lochner, Wabash County Chief Probation Officer.
