Publication Rules:

Books, magazines, and newspapers can be new or used but must be sent by the publisher or a bookstore with a paid receipt or invoice. Magazines may have a receipt or invoice or may have a printed delivery label with the offender’s name and address. If these, or similar, proof of origin and purchase are not present, the item will be returned to sender. NOTE: A hardback book legitimately obtained and in an offender’s property before October 1, 2010 will be allowed. Facility heads can make exceptions on an individual basis for educational or religious hardback books that are not available in paperback or soft cover. Such exceptions must be documented in the Corrections Integrated System (CIS) property module.

Incoming Mail 

Incoming Mail Guidelines explain the process for sending mail to offenders, what prohibited items are and what happens to mail when an offender is transferred. Offenders may receive letters (no packages) and photos (no Polaroids or nudity) from family/friends. Personal letters will be opened and searched for contraband; unacceptable items will be returned to the sender or given to proper authorities. Offenders with funds must purchase envelopes and postage from commissary; no stamps or stationery will be accepted. Offenders may send out packages (i.e. hobby crafts, excess property or contraband) at their own expense. Offenders without funds (indigent) will be provided stationery and postage for one personal letter per week. The facility resource center staff or designee will handle all incoming or outgoing legal mail.


Address as  follows:

All incoming mail must be clearly addressed with the offender's committed name (no nicknames), IDOC number, institution, and housing assignment. 

How to address mail:

First Line: Name of Institution
Second line: Name of offender followed by his/her inmate number
Third Line: Offender's housing unit
This is followed by the rest of institution's mailing address.
