There is nothing new under the sun…turn, turn, turn

Emailing an inmate

Back in the old days, when your loved one was in the county jail, you could take your pen and paper, compose a letter, add a stamp, and put it in the mailbox. The mail would be screened by jail staff, and if acceptable, would be delivered to the inmate.

San Diego County is automating the process – well, part of the process.

General Information about e-mailing an inmate

◾There is no expectation of privacy for e-mail messages. Every message will be reviewed by jail staff; therefore this system should not be used for legal or confidential mail, or any other privileged communications.
◾Please limit your correspondence to two message per day in lieu of postcards.
◾Messages are limited to a single page and may not contain pictures or other attachments.
◾Inmates will not receive the message electronically. The message will be received by jail staff, printed and delivered in printed form to the inmate, generally the following morning.
◾Inmates will not be able to respond via e-mail. Outgoing correspondence will continue to be by U.S. Mail.
◾When prompted to enter your address, please enter the address that you prefer the inmate to use for any written return correspondence.
