Inmate Money

Each prison has a Commissary that serves to provide inmates a bank type account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone can deposit funds to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send prisoners money through postal mail and have to send those funds to the address below and do so in accordance with the steps listed below:

The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be held for a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not get the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner info but only if the envelope you sent it in has a return address. Cash and personal checks cannot be deposited to the prisoner’s account so do not send cash or checks.

Inmate Programs

The Renaissance Program: The Renaissance Program is a 70 bed residential alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment unit. The program uses cognitive behavioral therapy as the main approach of treatment. The Offender Substance Report has stated that cognitive behavioral therapy and social learning approaches can change an offender’s behavior. Research also indicates through the National Institute of Justice that AOD programs incorporating criminogenic risks and needs are more successful. Social learning through criminogenic needs are both addressed within the Renaissance Program.
The Sex Offender Program is a structured two level program. The Mandatory Sex Offender program is a 24-session, mandatory, educational program for all medium-high and high risk sex offenders. The Comprehensive Sex Offender program is a structured 9 to 18 month long program that focuses on programming interventions for sex offenders considered to be medium-high to high risk to re-offend if released back into the community.
