Mail Services

There are no restrictions concerning the number of letters an inmate may send or receive. All incoming personal letters are inspected for restricted materials, contraband and money prior to delivery.

Only money orders are accepted by mail. Personal checks are not accepted, nor is cash.


All mail should be addressed to the inmate and should include their inmate number; using the inmate number will help expedite the mail process.
