The Florence Federal Correctional Institution (also known as the Florence Federal Prison and FCI Florence) is part of the Florence Correctional Complex in Fremont County, Colorado. This medium-security institution for men and its minimum-security satellite camp currently houses 1,311 inmates. It offers services such as a residential drug abuse program and adult continuing education courses. It also offers medical, psychiatric, and dental treatment to inmates.

How to Contact Inmates at the Florence Federal Correctional Institution

There are a few ways to connect with inmates at FCI Florence.

How to Send Money to Florence Federal Correctional Institution Inmates

Because the Florence Federal Correctional Institution is a federal prison, you cannot send money directly to prisoners at their FCI Florence mailing address. Instead, you have to send money electronically via Western Union or MoneyGram, or money orders in the mail via the US Postal Service. For more information on how to send money to federal prisoners, see the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. In all cases, you will need the inmate's full committed name and their eight-digit register number.

How to Email Florence Federal Correctional Institution Inmates

As a federal prison, FCI Florence participates in the Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System (TRULINCS). This allows inmates to send and receive secure, text-only emails and keep in touch with their friends and family, without granting them access to the Internet at large. If your inmate has been approved to use the TRULINCS system, they can add you to their approved contact list and begin their controlled contact with you at any time. You'll be sent a message asking if you want contact from this inmate. From there, you can create a CorrLinks account, which you can use to send emails to your loved one.
