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 jail staff and can and will be used against you or your inmate in court.  

Never write anything about the inmate's court case you wouldn't want read aloud in court.

Mail is considered by the jail to be a privilege. Any violations of the mail policies can result in the inmate's mail privileges being suspended.

The introduction of contraband by you into the jail through the mail could result in criminal charges being filed against both you and the inmate.

You may send as many letters as you wish as long as they adhere to the above restrictions.

Emailing an Inmate

Click here to register an account for emailing your inmate.

You will fund the account at the site with a credit or debit card.

Once you send a connection request to the inmate of your choice, the inmate must respond before you can begin emailing each other.

Let your email know by letter or phone that you have set up the account so he or she can log-on and accept the request. Once it is accepted it does not need to be accepted for future email correspondence between the two of you.

You may send photos to the inmate in email, however, the same rules apply as for mailed photos.

Keep in mind that these emails are just like letters in that they are scanned for anything that could threaten the security of the jail or things that can be used against the inmate in his or her case or future cases.
