How do I write/correspond with an inmate? Inmates may receive mail at any time during their incarceration. Write an inmate as you would anyone else, but remember to put his inmate number in the proximity of his name on the envelope. Your letter to the inmate will be opened and searched for contraband. If contraband is found, we will ask the state’s attorney of your county to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. We are not interested in what you write the inmate unless it contains plans for his escape or other illegal activity. Please do not decorate the envelope with stickers. We strictly enforce the prohibition of stickers since they may be used to introduce contraband materials. Any document received at a prison that has stickers attached will be returned.
What items can I mail to an inmate? Inmates may receive correspondence, legal mail, and publications which are reviewed to determine whether they are obscene or constitute a danger to safety and security. Inmates may receive cashier's checks or money orders not to exceed $50 addressed to them with their inmate number and your name and address. Money orders should be sent to the prison.
