To improve the security of the detention center, all correspondence received will be subject to inspection to see if you have contraband. When opening the mail, the officer only examines it, does not read it. Detainees can close and send their letters from the center. They have been provided a container where they can be placed. All correspondence received will be delivered to the detainee, and that sent will be taken to the appropriate post office within 24 hours after being received by the center staff. A schedule for picking up or delivering correspondence will be set in all housing units.
Detainees can buy stamps. There is generally no limit to the amount of correspondence they can send at your expense. A stamp limit will be granted at the cost of the government to indigent detainees (those who have no financial income or funds in the detention center account).
We only send legal correspondence to detainees who have left the center or have been transferred to another center. General correspondence will be marked “Return to sender” and forwarded to the post office.
If detainees receive funds by mail, they will be taken to the processing area so that the money is placed in their accounts. The officer will give you a receipt for the money before depositing it into your accounts. Detainees are warned not to send them cash by mail.
