Corresponding With an Inmate at Martin Correctional Institution
Because Martin Correctional Institute (also known as Martin CI) tightly controls the atmosphere, anyone looking to visit or contact a prisoner has to adhere to a strict set of rules. Although you can't call an inmate at Martin, there are certain times of the day when an inmate can make calls, allowing you to set up calls with inmates in advance.
It's also worth remembering that all materials sent to an inmate are subject to search, and some things are not allowed by the FDC. For example, you can only send 15 pages of material or less, and the number of stamps you can send is capped at 20. Photographs of a sexual nature are also prohibited, and you can't send anything with electronic components. You can find more about mail and package restrictions.
When you've reviewed the guidelines and are ready to send an inmate a letter or package, make sure you address it as follows:

What to Do Before Visiting or Corresponding With an Inmate
Visiting with an inmate at Martin CI takes some planning, so make sure you review the requirements well before you expect to visit the facility. Here are the steps you will need to review prior to setting up an inmate visit:
- Fill out a request for visiting privileges and mail it in
- Submit a request for a visitation appointment (Monday 5:00 a.m. through Wednesday 5 p.m.)
- Review the dress code
- Show up on time and be prepared to be searched
- Bring a valid government-issued ID
Anyone 12 or older needs to fill out the request for visiting privileges in advance of scheduling a visitation appointment. Once you have been granted visiting privileges, requesting a visitation appointment is necessary and must be done between Monday at 5:00 a.m. through Wednesday at 5 p.m. for the current week. If you miss the window, the cycle will begin the following Monday morning again. Although visiting hours are between 9:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily, registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and stops at 2:00 p.m.
Dress Code and Regulations
It's also critical to make sure you have reviewed the dress code before a visitation. Any attire considered inappropriate can lead to being denied visitation rights. Guests are also only allowed to bring one car key, and key chains are not allowed. Although baby items are mostly allowed, there are limitations here as well (e.g., max of five diapers). Overall, just make sure you have thoroughly looked over the rules and regulations well before your visitation appointment.
Other restrictions to consider:
- You can have a max of $50 in cash (in a small wallet or purse)
- No cell phones in the visitation area
- No see-through clothes
- No threatening images on clothing
- No camouflage
