Sending Correspondence
Letters sent to detainees must include the last four digits of the detainee’s alien number (A-number), as well as the name and address of the sender. To improve the security of the detention center, any correspondence received will be subject to inspection to see if it has contraband. When opening the mail, the officer only examines it, not reads it. Detainees can close and send their letters from the center. They have been provided with a container where they can be placed. All correspondence received will be delivered to the detainee, and that which is sent will be taken to the appropriate post office within 24 hours after being received by the staff of the center. A schedule for picking up or delivering correspondence will be set in all housing units.

Detainees can buy stamps. There is generally no limit to the amount of correspondence they can send at your expense. A stamp limit on the government’s cost will be granted to indigent detainees (those who have no financial income or funds in the detention center account).
We only send legal correspondence to detainees who have left the centre or been transferred to another centre. General correspondence will be marked “Return to Sender” and forwarded to the post office.

Sending Money
If detainees receive funds in the mail, they will be taken to the processing area for the money to be placed in their accounts. The officer will give them a receipt for the money before depositing it into their accounts. Detainees are warned not to be mailed cash.

Shipping Packages
With the approval of the ICE Deportation Officer, a detainee may receive items that have been determined to be necessary for the sole purpose of travel or release from agency custody. Before sending packages to detainees, contact Supervising Immigration Agent Mark Parker at: (954) 545-6032.
