    Sending mail to an inmate



    Caution:

    Incarcerated felons throughout the country, including some Oregon inmates, often solicit pen pals through correspondence.

    There are inherent risks in becoming involved with incarcerated felons. Many well-meaning members of the public have been exposed to fraud and other criminal activity through correspondence with inmates. Should you have questions or concerns about solicitations for contact with an inmate, please contact the Oregon Department of Corrections at 503-945-9090 or DOC.Info@doc.state.or.us.



    How do I send mail to an inmate?

    When mailing to an inmate, please make sure:

    the inmate's name is as it appears on Department of Corrections records (i.e., no nicknames);
    inmate's SID number is included;
    the name of the prison is correct;
    correct prison address;
    return address must show the complete name and address of the sender;
    only allowed enclosures should be sent; and
    no mail should contain more than 10 pages per category (i.e., pamphlet, letter, photocopies, drawings, etc.)
    do not send unauthorized enclosures (blank paper, self addressed stamped envelopes, pornography).
    If you have questions regarding inmate mail, they should first be directed to the mailroom at the institution where the person is located.
