How to Contact Inmates at Indian Creek Correctional Center on Your Own

Contacting an inmate has always been more difficult than it should be. This is partly because visitation and letters are considered a privilege and partly because the inner workings of prison are brutal to figure out from the outside. If you want to write letters to a prisoner or visit incarcerated loved one in Indian Creek Correctional Center, it helps to know the current policies and exact procedures.

Sending Mail and Packages to an ICCC Inmate

The way you address a letter to a prisoner is essential for them to receive your letter.

Inmate Mailing Address

Inmate Name, ID Number

​Indian Creek Correctional Center

P.O. Box 16481

Chesapeake, VA 23328-6481

Mail Rules

Writing letters to inmates must conform to specific rules.

  1. VA DOC Sending Mail Guide
  2. Inmates receive three photo-copied pages, original letter and photos destroyed
  3. One page is a photocopy of the envelope, so keep letters and images to 2 pages each
  4. All photographs must be 4 inches by 6 inches or smaller
  5. No photographs of violent, sexual, or inappropriate images will be allowed

Hand-packed packages do not seem to be permitted, but you can use one of the available inmate care package programs to send a commercial care package from an approved service.

Send Money to an Indian Creek Correctional Center Inmate

Sending money on an inmates' behalf will usually need to go through a third party, typically JPay. However, you can bring up to $50 in a bag on visitation days.

Phone Communication at ICCC

You cannot make phone calls to inmates in Indian Creek Correctional Center, but they can call you using a prepaid phone account.

Visitation at Indian Creek Correctional Center

Visiting hours are between 8 Am and 3:30 PM on weekdays and weekends. However, the facility uses a rotating visitation day schedule, so you will need to call ahead to know which days you can visit.

In order to visit, you will first need to apply for visitation, which you can do online, and pass a background check for approval. Minor (child) visitors must attach their application to an adult application. If you are not the child's guardian, you will need a notarized statement minor visitor form as part of your application.

Steps To Take Before Writing to an Inmate at Indian Creek Correctional Center

  1. Know your inmate's location
  2. Look up your inmate to find their ID number
  3. Know the letter restrictions and requirements, so your entire letter is received

It is vitally important that you know how to contact your loved one in Indian Creek Correctional Center, as any mistakes can lead to the letter being lost or discarded without delivery. If you do not know your loved one's exact location or their 7-digit inmate ID number, the letter will not reach them. 

DoNotPay can easily get this information with a quick lookup process. All we need is their name and the state they are incarcerated in to get all the information you need to successfully send a letter. As long as your letter is within the size and content requirements, your inmate can receive it and send the letter back.

Difficulties You May Have Contacting a Loved One in Indian Creek Correctional Center 

Why hasn't your inmate received the letters you've sent? Why might you have trouble reaching them with letters now? The VA DOC is extremely strict about letters sent to inmates, and any oversight or mistake in your addressing, content or even size of the letter may result in non-delivery.

If you do not have the correct address, it won't reach the ICCC. If you do not have their inmate ID, it will not reach your loved one. Likewise, if your letter is too long, has graphic pictures, or content that is deemed inappropriate, it will be declined, and you will not be notified. Also, your loved one may have been transferred, which will make it more difficult to address letters to them accurately.
