The Easy Way to Keep in Touch With Loved Ones in Kansas Prisons and Jails

For many of the nearly 10,000 incarcerated Kansans, staying in touch with the outside world can be a bit tricky. Although Kansas prisons allow people behind bars to call, write, or video chats with their loved ones under certain circumstances, they also charge exorbitant rates. Trying to contact an incarcerated loved one from the outside isn't so easy either.

Connecting with incarcerated loved ones in Kansas prisons and jails through visitation, calls, letters, etc., is an intricate process full of obstacles and predetermined protocols. Often, letters don't reach inmates because they violate the rules. But these circumstances should not keep you from trying to stay in touch with your loved one on the inside.

DoNotPay offers an easy way to send letters and keep in touch with inmates in the Kansas prison system. Read on to learn more.
