Connect With Inmates in Kentucky Prisons and Jails Made Easy

The United States has the largest prison population in the world by a long shot. Among the states that make up the country, Kentucky consistently ranks among the top 10 in terms of incarceration. With over 200 facilities currently active within the commonwealth, there are many places you might look to in order to find somewhere to connect with an inmate. If you're interested in getting in touch with someone behind bars in a Kentucky prison or jail, you can get DoNotPay to help.

Ways to Connect With Inmates in Kentucky Prisons or Jails

There are a number of ways you can get in touch with inmates in Kentucky prisons and jails. Given that every facility is different and follows different rules, these are somewhat general guidelines. When you decide on an inmate to contact, make sure to check the forms of communication offered at the facility they're in as well as the rules on correspondence before you do anything.

With that being said, here are some ways you might contact a prisoner in a Kentucky prison or jail:

By Mail

Connecting by mail is one of the most popular methods for interacting with prisoners. Many people can find prison pen pals through this method. Sending letters, packages, money, and more is usually allowed, though different facilities will understandably have different regulations about what and how you can send to an inmate.

By Phone

Both traditional and video calling are available in most prisons. While they might be a more direct way of communication than mail, they tend to cost a lot more. Calls are also strictly scheduled, so you'll only have so long to chat before you're cut off.

By Email

Many facilities do not offer direct email between inmates and people on the outside, but do pass along emails through their internal networking service. This tends to be a cheaper option than mail, though it's about as slow given the regulations around when and what can be sent over electronic communications.

In Person

Most prisons allow in-person visits with inmates. Depending on the facility, this could be between a partition or in a communal space or room. Obviously, there are a lot of rules and regulations about who you can visit when it happens, what you can bring, and what you can do.

How to Contact Inmates in Kentucky Prisons and Jails on Your Own

As you might expect, there are a number of barriers in place to make contacting an inmate a bit difficult. Jumping through these hoops can be a real challenge on your own, so getting DoNotPay to assist you is generally a good idea. If you want to try it yourself, though, you can make an attempt following these steps:

  1. Decide on the inmate you wish to contact. This means getting their name, the facility they're staying in, and the identification number they were assigned.
  2. Choose the method you wish to use, then read up on the particular prison's regulations surrounding that form of communication.
  3. Contact the prison and tell them you'd like to get in contact with one of their inmates.
  4. Prepare for your correspondence by writing a letter/email, making up a package, and/or getting ready for a call/visit.
  5. Wait for the go-ahead by your contact in the prison staff.
