Branch County MI Jail basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 517-278-2942

The Branch County MI Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 580 Marshall Rd Coldwater, MI which is operated locally by the Branch County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Branch County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Coldwater Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The elected Sheriff is directly responsible to the citizens of Branch County for the provision of effective and acceptable law enforcement services as well as the safe and effective operation of the jail.

Inmate Mail

Incoming and outgoing inmate mail is subject to inspection for the presence of contraband that might threaten the safety, security or well-being of the jail/facility, its staff, and residents. Inmates may receive only metered, unstamped, plain white postcards no larger than 6" x 8" as mail. Writing must be in pencil or blue or black ink. Any other mail will be returned to the sender. If no return address is available, unauthorized mail will be stored in the inmate's locker until the inmate's release. No photos allowed.

Inmate mail cannot contain any of the following: Create an immediate threat to jail order by describing the manufacture of weapons, bombs, incendiary devices, or tools for escape that realistically are a danger to jail security; Advocate violence or insurrection; Promote or espouse racial supremacy or ethnic purity; provide detailed instruction in any fighting arts. No current inmate-to-inmate mail will be allowed and will be destroyed. Stamps, writing instruments, paper, etc. for inmates must be purchased through the jail commissary. No property of any kind can be mailed to or dropped off for inmates. Inappropriate or unacceptable mail will be returned to the sender and not placed in the inmate's locker. Those persons attempting to send contraband will be prosecuted.

Inmate Locator

Branch County MI Jail publishes the names of their inmates currently in their facility in Michigan. Your search should start with this locator first to see if your loved one is there.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason they charge to access it.
