Inmate Services

All detention facilities are no-hostage facilities. Employees will not bargain for the release of hostages.

Incoming Mail for Inmates

  1. Incoming mail must include the inmate's booking and Jail Identification (JID) numbers. These numbers MUST be included on the front of all envelopes or your mail will be returned. Insure that all letters sent are addressed to the inmate's name as it appears on their wristband.
  2. Mail will be picked up from the Post Office, opened, searched and delivered as soon as possible. However, mail is not available for pick up or processing on weekends or holidays and there may be some delay in receiving mail due to the necessary time to process it properly.
  3. All personal letters will be opened and inspected for contraband. If any item of contraband is enclosed in the envelope, the entire envelope and its contents will be returned to the sender. If the contraband is illegal or suspected illegal in nature, it will be booked for destruction or as evidence for use in criminal prosecution. Confidential mail will be opened and inspected for contraband only in the inmate's presence. Confidential mail shall not be read for content, but may be scanned to insure that it does, in fact, constitute privileged mail.
  4. Any mail (including magazines, books and articles) which have the following characteristics will be considered contraband and the entire envelope and its contents will be returned to the sender:
    • Contains postage stamps, stickers, stationery or envelopes.
    • Contains tissue, blotter, or construction paper.
    • Contains loose pages torn from novels, word-find and puzzle books.
    • Has had a foreign substance applied to the envelope or letter (e.g., lipstick, perfume, cologne, powder, etc.).
    • Obscene photos, publications, or writings, and mail containing information concerning where, how, or from whom such matter may be obtained, and nude photographs of friends, relatives or acquaintances. Sex-based publications that depict frontal nudity or penetration are prohibited (e.g., Playboy, Playgirl, Penthouse, Hustler, etc.).
    • Any matter of character tending to incite murder, arson, riot, violent racism, or any other form of violence.
    • Any matter concerning gambling or a lottery.
    • Threatens blackmail and/or extortion.
    • Concerns the sending or contraband in our out of any facility.
    • Depicts, encourages or describes methods of escape from correctional facilities.
    • Information which would present a clear and present danger of violence and/or physical harm to persons in or outside of the facility.
    • Concerns plots or plans to disrupt the order of the facility and/or to breach the security of the facility.
    • Concerns plans for activities in violation of the law, or of rules and regulations or procedures of the facility.
    • Contains coded messages which are not reasonably understood by the reader.
    • Depicts or describes procedures for the construction or use of weapons, ammunition, bombs, or incendiary devices.
    • Depicts or describes procedures for the brewing or alcoholic beverages, or the manufacture of drugs.
  5. The only acceptable mail items are as follows:
    • Magazines, newspapers and paperback books if mailed directly from the publisher. No hardbound books will be accepted. Be sure to provide the inmate's booking and JID numbers to the publisher. If a publication contains an article considered to be objectionable and/or a threat to facility security, the publication will not be delivered and will either be returned to the publisher or placed into your property.
    • Postcards.
    • Greeting cards. These cannot be excessively large, thick, embossed (having a raised surface) or contain sound making devices.
    • Newspapers clippings and/or articles in reasonable amounts.
    • Photographs. Only small photographs which do not have a backing capable of concealing contraband. Photographs cannot exceed 4" x 6" in size. Polaroids will not be accepted unless the backing has been removed.
    • Only U.S. Postal money orders addressed to an inmate will be deposited into their account. The money orders should be made payable in their name. A money receipt with the deposit amount and their new balance will be placed in the envelope and forwarded to them. Personal checks, cashier's checks, cash, credit cards and money orders that were not purchased at the Post Office are not accepted and will be returned to the sender. Exceptions will only be made for official bank checks mailed from foreign countries that have been converted and are made payable in American currency.
