Mail is considered sacred in a prison, detention
center or jail. You cannot send stamps and other sundries through the mail, you can only send her money to her inmate trust account. When the inmate has money on their books, they buy the writing material and stamps at the commissary. There is also a program for indigent inmates at every facility where
they supply paper, pencil, envelopes and stamps. Whether the inmate has money
on their books or not, there is no reason why an inmate cannot keep in touch if
Visitation terms depend on the security level of the facility. Some visits are through Plexiglas and others are where you sit face-to-face with no contact and others where you can actually hug and give a welcome and goodbye kiss. Check with the unit secretary of the prison and ask them so that you will have the proper expectations and not be disappointed when you arrive.
