(No Nick Names Allowed) We will not deliver or hold mail for an inmate if it is missing a return address or required full names.  If the mail does not have the required information it may be refused or returned to the sender.  

Please hand write your return address rather than using gummed or adhesive labels. We remove such labels from mail before giving it to the inmate. Without a return address, the inmate may not be able to write to you because he or she will not know your address.
