Some points to consider when sending mail to an inmate:

  • Inmates are not allowed to receive packages.

  • There is no limit on the amount of letters and inmate may receive.
  • Inmates are allowed to purchase paper and prepaid envelopes for return correspondence.
  • Do not spray with any perfume or put lip prints on the mail. They will be sent back.
  • All mail sent to inmates is subject to search.

You can also send digital messages to your loved on which is quicker, easier and cheaper than sending letters through the mail. You can fund your Messaging with your current Inmate Telephone account or if you don’t have an account you can go to  and set one up.
