You can contact an inmate by writing letters and sending them through the postal service, via email through Corrlinks or inmates can call you by phone. You can also get information on how to visit an inmate in person.

How to find Contact an inmate

If you want to send a letter to an inmate, your letter should include:

  • The inmate's full name in the address

  • The inmate's commitment number in the address

We open all incoming mail for inspection. Under certain conditions, outgoing mail from inmates may also be read.

Family and friends are able to send emails to inmates and inmates are able to respond using Secure Mail, a program offered by Corrlinks.  Sign-up today online to take advantage of this service.

Inmates are not able to initiate email contact to anyone, but are able to respond to individuals who have sent them emails first. 

Emails cost $0.25 each. Please be aware the cost of any emails rejected by DOC staff for objectionable matter will not be refunded, and inmates may be subject to sanctions pursuant to 103 CMR 430, Inmate Discipline.  

Inmates have access to phones in all prisons. They are responsible for keeping a list of phone numbers.

All calls have a flat rate per minute, depending on if the call is in-state or out of state.

You can add money to an inmate's phone account using the AdvancePay program.
