It depends on the mood of the prison staff at the time. Generally the mail gets to the right inmate if the number is correct, but if it is ever returned - we notify you and resend the corrected letter.

There is nothing that you can do once in the control of the BOP.  His designation is well thought out and once they have sent you somewhere, you are there at least 18 months (before they will consider a transfer) - unless the inmate gets into trouble, then the accommodations can worsen.

All outside communication must be approved by facility staff. Orientation can preclude approval but it's done on a case-by-case basis.

Sólo hay dos maneras de comunicarse con el recluso, una es a través del servicio de envío de cartas y la otra es a través del teléfono. Los reclusos deben iniciar las llamadas, no se puede llamar a la instalación. Si la llamada son de larga distancia, se puede obtener un número local que hará que las llamadas le cuesten aproximadamente el 90% menos. Por favor, póngase en contacto con nosotros si necesita cualquier tipo de asistencia con estos servicios.

Subject: Sending mail inside
Inmates appreciate people writing to them and sending them pictures. Some people LOVE writing to inmates that have recently been in the news. It can be fun to have a famous pen pal who writes back. There are thousands of inmates in our system - make a new pen pal!

Subject: Residential drug abuse program (rdap)
RDAP is absolutely FREE to the federal inmates.  It is a great program and one that if completed will give the inmate one year off their sentence plus a guaranteed six months of halfway house. Besides the time off, RDAP is a worthwhile program that is integral to successful re-entry and should be available to all inmates.

The difference lies in the type of prison and an inmate's custody level. USP is  United States Penitentiary and is a high level of custody; FCI is Federal Correctional Institution which is reserved for medium and low security; and finally FPC is Federal Prison Camp which is the minimum level where there are no fences and allow work detail and liberal movement.  There is no commissary "number", simply use their inmate number which would be formatted like this: xxxxx-xxx.
