[SIZE=3]It is the policy of the Department that inmates committed to its custody be allowed access to the mails (excluding electronic mail) so long as state and federal laws and regulations governing the use of the mails are not violated and security, safety or good order of the institution is not threatened.

There are rules regarding what may be contained in a letter or package sent in to an inmate. Any contraband found in the mail will be confiscated. Contraband is any item or article not issued by the facility, purchased in the canteen, purchased through approved channels, or approved by the warden/superintendent or designee.

The following are reasons that mail may be returned to the sender (list not inclusive of all reasons mail may be returned): [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]the mail contains threats of physical harm against a person, threats or plans of criminal activity, threats of blackmail or extortion, promotes gang activities, advocates or describes participation in illegal activities [/SIZE]

[SIZE=3]There will be some property that will be held for the inmate and returned upon release if it is sent in such as: driver's license, birth certificate, social security card or a vehicle title. These items are considered contraband and the inmate may not have possession of them. The confiscated items will be returned to the inmate upon his/her release from the institution.[/SIZE]
