Important Mail Tips
Mail is always scanned and inspected for contraband, obscenity and other rule infractions.
Assume that everything you write will be read by staff and can and will be used against you or your inmate in court.
Never write anything about the juvenile's court case you wouldn't want read aloud in court.
Mail is considered by the center to be a privilege. Any violations of the mail policies can result in the resident's mail privileges being suspended.
The introduction of contraband by you into the center through the mail could result in criminal charges being filed against both you and the juvenile.
