All correspondence must go through the U. S. Mail. Unacceptable mail will be returned to sender.
Any person supplying contraband into a corrections facility is subject to criminal prosecution in accordance with ORS 162.185.
Correspondence is encouraged. It is important for all concerned to communicate and one way to accomplish this is through the mail. Security staff is required to inspect both incoming and outgoing mail. This generally does not include reading the mail, but the reading of mail may occur when there are concerns for inmate and/or facility safety and security, violations of law or when there is a requirement that the behavior of an inmate be monitored.
Mail sent between currently incarcerated inmates within this facility or any other correctional facility will not be accepted or forwarded. Mail intended for other inmates to be forwarded via 3rd parties will also not be allowed. Failure to follow this rule may result in inmate discipline. Exceptions may be requested if the other inmate is an immediate family member or the correspondence is strictly legal in nature.
