Need to ? You’re in the right place. DoNotPay can help.

More than 8 million people are incarcerated in jails and prisons throughout the US each year. While they are incarcerated, many inmates are inspired and strengthened by the support they receive through letters and packages from home.

Unfortunately, sending letters and packages to prisons such as the Nottoway Correctional Center can be a difficult process, requiring time at the post office and a number of issues that can result in inmates not receiving their correspondence in a timely fashion.

DoNotPay's Connect With an Inmate product makes communicating with your incarcerated loved one easier.

You can also send letters and packages to your incarcerated friend or family member via US mail, by sending them to:

Inmate's name and ID

You should be aware that mail sent to an inmate is subject to search by prison staff to ensure that the content of the letter or package do not violate prison regulations or contain prohibited items.

The facility also has 24 JPay kiosks. JPay is a third-party company that operates within the prison industry and makes money by charging a fee for prisoners to communicate with their loved ones.

Problem Points When Sending Letters to Nottoway Correctional Center

Sending “snail mail” to Nottoway is challenging. While mailing letters and packages seems like a simple enough task, it can be extraordinarily time-consuming for some, requiring a visit to the post office and a waiting line. Three other issues include:

  1. Prisons tend to be picky about how correspondence is received, and can deny letters that appear in the wrong type of envelope or do not have all the information for the prisoner included on the label.
  2. Third-party companies, like JPay, charge high fees to inmates just to have the ability to send or receive an email or receive money from their loved ones.
  3. In a world where texting and email are standard forms of communication, friends and family members often struggle with the act of corresponding by letter, and many inmates become discouraged at the time it takes to receive communication from their family.

Fortunately, DoNotPay's Connect With an Inmate product can mitigate these problem points, making communicating with an inmate every bit as easy as sending a text or email.
