New rules concerning inmate mail starting January 1, 2013

Effective, January 1st, 2013, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office will follow suit with many others jails in the state of Arkansas and establish a “Post Card” only policy, for jail inmates. Marion County inmates will only be allowed to send and receive USPS approved post cards.  The receipt and mailing of envelopes to and from relatives and friends, or any other personal mailings, will no longer be permitted.  Family or friends are allowed to bring inmates USPS approved post cards and stamps, for communication purposes.

The post card policy is being implemented as a faster and safer way to take the necessary security precautions, in order to decrease the risk of contraband coming into the jail. Furthermore, it saves the county money on supplying postage and envelopes to indigent inmates, which the county is legally obligated to.

There will be an exception for “legal mail”, which is to and from the courts, attorneys, officers of the court, and government agencies.  For this exception, envelopes and papers will be allowed.  These envelopes must be clearly marked and identified as “legal mail” and must be addressed appropriately.  Incoming envelopes from those sources must be pre-printed with the return name and address of the court, attorney, officer of the court, or government agency.
