Addressing Format

Email

For many individuals, emailing may be a more sensible, convinient, and cost saving option. The way it works is an inmate initiates an email through our electronic email system that is available to them via the kiosk in their living area. The sysem allows the inmate to initiate an email to you. You will receive an email notifying you that a message is available. You can then view and respond to the email via Jail ATM.
