How can I write to my friend or relative in jail?

You can write to a prisoner as often as you like. Correspondence must contain your full name and complete address. If it does not contain your full name and address, mail will not be accepted and will be returned to you or the post office. Your correspondence must also contain the prisoner’s full name and be sent to:
P.O. Box 473
Monroe, WI 53566

We do not accept packages for prisoners. Mail can be sent in envelopes no larger than 10 inches by 13 inches. The following is allowed: letters, correspondence, money orders, and photos which are no larger than 3 inches by 5 inches. No Polaroid photos, stamps, pornography, or nude photos are allowed. Any envelope exceeding a 10 inches by 13 inches size or any envelope appearing to contain nonacceptable items will be returned to the sender or post office at sender’s expense. This includes Federal Express and U.S. Post Office overnight mail.

Prisoner mail is opened and searched for contraband prior to distribution to the prisoner. The jail does not accept hand-delivered mail. All mail must be processed through the U.S. Postal Service.
