The Bradley County Correctional Facility does not accept incoming telephone calls for inmates. Each pod has a telephone inmates can use to make collect calls. Persons receiving a call will hear a recorded message informing you the incoming call is from an inmate housed inside the facility. You will be prompted to choose from options that let you accept or refuse the call, or request additional information. You will not be charged for the call unless you touch the appropriate entry on your telephone keypad.
ALL CALLS ARE SUBJECT TO MONITORING AND RECORDING
Inmates are encouraged to send and receive mail during their period of incarceration. All incoming mail is searched for contraband. ANY MAIL CONTAINING ILLEGAL MATERIAL WILL NOT BE DELIVERED TO THE INMATE.
THE JAIL DOES NOT ACCEPT MAIL WITH POSTAGE DUE
The policy for incoming mail addressed to inmates changed this year and is limited to postcards only with one exception. Effective March 1, 2016 inmate mail will only be accepted in the form of postcards, with maximum dimensions of 5-1/2 tall x 8-1/2 inches wide. All postcards must include the inmate’s name, sender’s name, and return address. Postcards that have items pasted or attached, and/or have been altered in any form will be rejected and returned to sender. The only exception to the postcard procedure for personal inmate mail, will be standard size envelopes containing, appropriate personal photographs, with maximum dimensions of 4-1/8 tall x 9-1/2 wide postmarked during the first 14 days of incarceration. Envelopes that have items pasted or attached, or containing additional items of ANY KIND, will be rejected, and returned to sender.
