All About The Everglades Correctional Institution

How May I Visit an Inmate Here?

You may visit an inmate between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, subject to certain rules and restrictions.

  1. Fill out the visitation form
  2. Mail it to the address listed on the form
  3. DO NOT attempt to visit the inmate until you have been approved for visitation

Consult the Visitation Page or contact the facility for visitation rules.

May I Write to My Incarcerated Friend or Loved One?

You can mail written letters to an offender via U.S. Postal Service mail. You may NOT use boxes, plastic bags, padded envelopes, or certain other types of packaging. Refer to Inmate Mail rules for more details.

Address the letter using the offender's committed name, DC Number, and facility address.

May an Inmate Call Me?

Florida State prison inmates are not permitted to receive phone calls, yet they may place calls following specific procedures. They may only call approved numbers and must use the inmate telephone system.

I Wish I Could Email My Loved One

It is possible to contact an inmate via email. While offenders do not have direct access to the internet, they and their friends or loved ones may use the JPay Email service for communication.

Those who wish to send emails to inmates must purchase "stamps" to be used on the email website at the cost of 39 cents each. This is cheaper than postage stamps and helps cover the cost of monitoring email communications.
