Detention Center - Inmate Mail
You may communicate with an inmate via the US mail. Mail is received Monday through Saturday (excluding holidays) from the Post Office. Incoming mail is opened and checked for contraband prior to being delivered to an inmate. All legal mail is opened in the presence of the inmate and checked for contraband prior to the inmate receiving it.
Providing or attempting to provide contraband, (as defined by SC Law #24-13-150), to an inmate is a felony and violators will be prosecuted. These incidents will also be reported to a US Postal Inspector for review.
The Detention Center does not censor or inspect outgoing mail prior to the mail being transferred to the U.S. Postal Service and does not accept responsibility for the contents of outgoing mail.
Photographs, drawings, and news clippings are normally acceptable items. Mail, newspapers, magazines, paperback books, photographs are not allowed with:
