Communication Inside a Federal Prison
Federal prisoners do have the ability to communicate from inside a Federal Prison with the outside in various ways. Click any of the links below to learn more.
U.S. Postal Mail: Federal prisoners are permitted to receive mail during their incarceration. This mail can be sent from virtually anyone outside of prison (e.g., friends, family, businesses, etc.) but there are some restrictions.
Legal Correspondence: Prisoners confined within the Federal Bureau of Prisons do enjoy the right to privileged legal communications with their attorneys.
Inmate Telephones: Inmates incarcerated within the Federal Bureau of Prisons have access to a monitored telephone system which permits them to call approved contacts.
TRULINCS Inmate Email: Federal prisoners have access to the Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System (TRULINCS) which permits them to email with authorized members of the community.
Inmate Visitation: Prisoners are permitted to have visits with family and friends. While visitation policies differ depending on the federal prison in question, the general rules and procedures are the same for all facilities.
