Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends can to send prisoners money through the postal service and will have to send funds to this address and follow the rules written below:

The funds have to be in a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.

  1. Linda says:

    Today was my first time going to visit a relative at Caswell County Correctional Center. Upon arrival, a female (dark skin, heavy set) guard was coming out of the facility and I took the opportunity to ask her some questions since this was my first visit. She was very nice and very helpful. My sister , brother and I waited patiently lined against the wall waiting for the visitation process to begin. My sister had spoken with a male visit coordinator on Thursday (March 24th) who told her that we could visit today (March 26th) with our relative (she gave our relative’s name) from 9 to 11 but that we should come early so that we could be in place and seated when our relative was brought out. We were treated horribly by Guard Kenya and Lieutenant Briggs would not help. Horrible experience. Because we could not give the name of the person who told us to come today, they refused to let us visit with our relative. We followed all of their rules by calling in advance to secure the date and time and the Guard and Lieutenant refused to let us visit. This after my brother got off his midnight shift at a hospital in another county 2 1/2 hours away and my sister over 2 hours away and myself over an hour away. After we were turned away, I called back to the facility to confirm the time we could actually visit, the person answering the phone was rude, hateful and loud. When I asked for her name (remember the lieutenant asked for names and denied our request for a visit because we couldn’t give him a name) she said and I quote “I don’t give out my name” and she hung up the phone before I could say another word.
    I called back and asked for Mr. Briggs, she said “he is not here today”, I said I was just there and spoke to him and she said well I don’t see his car. She then asked if she could take a message, I gave my name and number. After about 30 minutes with no call back, I called bak again and spoke with Lieutenant Briggs who confirmed that we could see our relative on tomorrow from 1-3.
    We were treated horribly. We did what we were told and still could not see our relative. They treated us like we were not telling the truth. Why would anyone in the world lie about going to a prison to see a relative based on the instruction they were given.
    I found out the name of the hateful person on the phone. She was African American with short blond afro and her name is Kenya. She was horrible and rude on the phone. The warden, should perform some random phone calls on her shift to hear how she talks to people. If you are recording the phone calls from the community, please review the calls received at 336-694-4531. I called on March 26th at 10:06 am, 10:08 am and 10:41 am. She would not give me her name, yet you require it to verify that we have spoken to someone and is flat out lied about Lieutenant being at the facility. She can’t be trusted to tell the truth and she knew she was wrong and that is why she refused to give her name.
    When you know better, you must do better, please handle Kenya.
