Inmate Mail

As of JUNE 12th, 2016  the Kenton County Detention Center will

NO LONGER ALLOW WRITTEN LETTERS
TO COME IN THE MAIL.

The only type of personal mail allowed will be

POSTAL POST CARDS.

If any hand written letters come in after June 12, 2016, they will be returned to sender. POSTAL post cards are purchased at a post office. They are plain and pre-stamped. Must be written in pen or pencil. NO markers, crayons, etc.

This policy is necessary in an attempt to decrease the amount of contraband entering the Jail through regular envelopes. The postcard incoming mail restriction does not apply to the Dept. of Corrections, Courts, practicing attorneys, public officials or approved clergy.

If a hand written personal letter is found in the inmates legal mail, then the hand written letter will be disposed of and the legal mail will be delivered.

All photos sent in must have a stamp on the back. Only 6 (six) 4x6 photos are allowed per inmate, per stay. All photos are logged.
