Outgoing Inmate Legal/Letter Mail: Outgoing mail should be placed in the depositories provided in each housing unit. The mail is picked up by the unit officer Monday through Friday, with the exception of federal holidays. Consistent with the provisions of the “Correspondence” Program Statement, 5265.11, you may seal your mail prior to placing it in the depository. The Bureau of Prisons retains the right to open general outgoing correspondence as provided in the Correspondence Program Statement. Inmates may deliver their outgoing legal mail to a representative from the ISM Department or a Correctional Officer at the control center, Sunday through Thursday evening, (with the exception of Federal holidays), between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m.
Inmates are responsible for filling out the return address completely on envelopes provided for your use by the institution. If you use an envelope not provided by the institution, you are responsible for ensuring that the envelope used contains all return address information listed on the envelope provided by the institution.
