Challenges When Connecting With an Inmate at ECI-A Prison
Although the ECA-A is a minimum-security facility, it follows a strict protocol when connecting the inmates with the outside world. The facility restricts visitation to Saturday, Sunday, and Mondays. Scheduling a visit might prove difficult for out-of-state relatives.
Before you can successfully mail an inmate, you need to look up the ECI-A mailing guidelines and ensure that you follow them to the letter. Contravening the procedures leads to the facility confiscating the letter, and you could get into legal trouble if it contains contrabands.
