Jail changes policy on inmate mail to increase security & deter contraband
The Humboldt County Correctional Facility is changing its policy on inmate mail in an effort to increase safety and security by deterring the introduction of contraband in the facility.
Beginning Feb. 1, 2018, the Correctional Facility will only be accepting incoming mail that is written on plain/lined white paper or postcards. The facility will no longer be accepting greeting cards, letters on colored paper, or letters on cardstock paper. Any mail received that is not on white plain/lined paper will be returned to the sender with a notification for the return.
Inmates may still continue to receive pictures that are no larger than 5”X7”.
