Copyright © 2011 Middle Peninsula Regional Security Center
All mail received will be opened and inspected. Inmate mail will not be read or censored unless
there is reason to believe it is being used for illegal purposes, threatens the safety and/or security
of the facility, threatens the safety of a public official or any other person(s) or is believed to be in
direct violation of facility policies. Only money orders, cashier's checks or certified checks will be
accepted. Cash will not be allowed and will be returned to the sender at Inmate's expense.

Polaroid pictures will not be accepted.
Nude or scantily clad photos will not be accepted.
The jail is not responsible for extra postage due.
Newspapers, magazines, books and catalogs will be mailed from the publisher. All books
must have a "soft cover" - not hardback. The Captain of Security will approve or
disapprove, in whole or part, any issue if the contents compromise jail security,
rehabilitation efforts or if the material is offensive to others.
Publications cannot violate any United States Postal Regulations.
Any items found in incoming mail deemed as contraband will be seized and used when needed
for a criminal investigation or prosecution. Cash or personal checks will be returned to sender at
Inmate's expense. A written notice listing the reasons for the seizure will be given to Inmate and
the sender. The sender will be allowed the opportunity to appeal the action and challenge the
seizure to the Superintendent.
