Sending a Mail/Care Package

You will be allowed to send an inmate who is sentenced and staying in the St. Joseph County Jail mail. If the inmate is just in the facility for a short-term time frame, you will NOT be permitted to send them mail until they either get released or transferred out to their permanent facility.

Sending Money

Everyone believes that the jails will supply everything the inmate needs. In a sense, they do. They will supply inmates with three meals a day and the ability to use the bathrooms. But inmates will need to purchase things like personal hygiene products, entertainment items, and can purchase extra food.

To give an inmate money, you can either mail a money order with the inmate’s name and ID number on it, or you can drop the money order off when you come down to the facility to visit.

Phone calls
