[B][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=4][COLOR=#0000ff]SENDING MAIL TO PRISONERS AT A.C.C.[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=#0000ff]
[/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman]
Prisoners may correspond with anyone unless such correspondence jeopardizes the safety of a person, a prisoner's rehabilitation, or the security of the institution. Therefore, prisoners may not correspond with their victims, persons they are court ordered not to contact, and people under the age of 16 to whom they are not related.

Prisoners may receive through the mail correspondence, photos, magazines, paper back books, newspapers, money orders, cashier's checks, and certified checks for $500 or less. No other items may be received by prisoners without pre approval from the Superintendent. If family and friends send in items other than those detailed above, the prisoner is required to disburse them at his or her expense.

All mail, unless it is considered "Privileged Mail" will be opened outside the presence of the prisoner and inspected for contraband. If it appears to contain information that is prohibited, it will be read for content and the prisoner will be provided written notification that the mail was read unless notice would hamper an investigation of criminal activity referred to in the communication.

Mail to prisoners should be addressed as follows for the East Building:
[/FONT][SIZE=2](Prisoners full name)
Anchorage Correctional Complex
1400 4th Avenue
Anchorage, AK 99501
