Inmate Mail

Mail call every day is an event. All inmates like to receive mail or other reading material. As with everything with the Federal Bureau of Prison, you have to follow a lot of rules. But! There is plenty that you can send to your inmate that will help them through these rough times.

Letters and postcards are the most popular mail types. You can send these directly to the inmates and the will be delivered after being reviewed for contraband by the prison staff. If you have questions on what you can send, check with the inmate or the facility.

Book, Magazines, and Newspapers are very welcome also. You normally cannot send them directly to the inmate for security reasons. They have to come from approved sources. Magazines and newspaper subscribtions are a great way to keep your inmate connected with the community. We have found several good sources for your to arrange this.
