How to Contact an Inmate at Butner FMC

There are several ways to contact an inmate at Butner FMC:

Visitation

You can only visit an inmate held at Butner FMC on the indicated visitation days and hours as outlined above. If you are planning to visit a loved one held at the facility, keep in mind the following:

  • You must be on the list of the inmate's requested visitors. The list cannot exceed ten people outside the family.
  • Bedside visits must be approved by the Unit Manager and can only last one hour.
  • Visits are tracked with a point system. Each month an inmate is awarded 16 points. Weekend visits deduct 4 points, and Friday visits only one point.
  • Inmates are allowed three adult visitors at a time, and no limit on child visitors.
  • If you bring money for vending machines during visits, it should not exceed $20 and must be in coins.
  • All electronics are not allowed into visiting rooms.

Writing Letters

Another way to keep in touch with an inmate at Butner FCC is through jail mail correspondence. When writing letters to inmates, ensure you have correctly captured their Inmate name and I.D. number. Any minor errors may result in the mail being returned. Keep in mind that all general correspondence is opened and inspected by prison officers for contraband and content that might threaten the facility's security.

Phoning Inmates

Inmates at Butner FCC are not allowed to have cell phones and receive inbound calls. However, they can access phones at a specified time to make outbound calls to family and friends. When making the calls, inmates are expected to pay for the call with the money on their account or call collect. Your number should be added to the approved contact list for an inmate to reach you. All phones are limited to 15 minutes and are closely monitored and recorded.

Although Butner FMC provides several means for inmates to keep in touch with the outside world, these channels are tedious and time-consuming to use. It can be quite inconvenient for you to go to the post office each time you write a letter to a loved one. Luckily, DoNotPay provides an easier, more convenient way to send letters and receive responses from inmates.

  1. Contact the facility to check the rules and regulations regarding calling/sending mail to inmates.
  2. Research the inmate's full name and prisoner ID. Failure to reference correct information when sending letters can result in your mail being rejected.
  3. Keep in mind authorities monitor all incoming and outgoing mail. Avoid contraband and don't use inappropriate language.
  4. Mail your letter to the facility using the provided inmate mail address above.

How to Send Money to an Inmate at Butner FMC
