Inmates in the Marion County Jail can receive mail during the time they are incarcerated.  All mail is delivered in person, as it is received, to those for who it is addressed.  Mail is distributed Monday through Friday.  No delivery is made on weekends or holidays.  Mail is not delivered to inmates who are unable to produce a valid and legible Jail identification armband.  All mail, with the exception of "legal mail", is opened and inspected for contraband and security breaches according to federal guidelines.  Mail pertaining to legal matters is opened in the presence of the inmate whom it is addressed. 

The inmates address for incoming mail must consist of the inmate's name as used at the time of the arrest and processing, their Jail ID number, cell housing number and the Marion County Jail in the following format:
