Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary which serves to provide prisoners an account for inmate funds and for purchasing things not provided by the Bureau of Prisons.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Anyone may send money to inmate’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds through the postal service and must send those funds to this address and do so in accordance with the steps shows below:

The funds 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. You should use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be kept for a 15-day hold, in which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back funds that do not have correct inmate info provided the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Checks and cash can’t be deposited to the prisoner’s account so don’t send any cash or checks.

The priority is to develop reading skills for each prisoner at least to the eighth grade level. Most prisoners are required to obtain GED certification prior to release from the facility. The career and technical education programs include horticulture, building maintenance, building trades, and computer literacy.
As with most Michigan prisons, volunteers help staff in providing prisoners with religious and other life enrichment programs.
