Every prison has a Commissary that serves to provide a bank-like account for inmate funds and for buying items not issued to inmates by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may add money into these accounts using Western Union or by mail.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money by way of the mail and must send it to the following address and follow the steps given below:

The deposit have to be in the form of a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a U.S. Postal Service money order, since all non-postal money orders processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day hold, and in this time the inmate will not have access to the money. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have valid inmate info if the envelope has an adequate return address. Cash and personal checks can’t be accepted so don’t send any cash or checks.

    Out of all the facilities I have visited, this is by far the worst. The visiting waiting area/visiting room is filthy. It looks like the jail is falling apart, there is rust everywhere. Also the staff are very rude, the inmates don’t get an answer in a timely manner. I can’t wait for my husband to get out of there.

  2. Sue J says:

    I spent many years on the farm in the 70′s and 80′s. I was also in Davis locked up at the end of the hall many times. I escaped and came out to AZ. I started doing dope in lock down and almost died. I was in love with Dave Ric****son the guard at that time. Many things have changed for me since then but I still have that gangsta side that will never go away…it scares me really. Did I calm down you ask??? NO…I’m still out of control and because of your prison I do not have any remorse for taking someone out. I feel nothing when I hurt people. It’s so easy to escape from your prison that I’m still laughing. All I learned from there was how to get away with more crime…I was NOT rehabilitated at all.
