Mail for inmates is to come by USPS (United States Postal Service) ONLY. Any other shipping method will not be recieved.
We do not except boxes of any kind. They will be refused at the post office and returned to sender.
Any envelope coming into the facility for an inmate should be addressed as follows:
First, Middle, Last Name
C/O Middle River Regional Jail
P.O. Box 2727
Staunton VA. 24402
If mail is not addressed with the inmates full name the mail will be returned to sender.
Inmates are not restricted as to how much mail he/she can receive. However, they are not allowed to receive certain things.
Any mail containing any object not allowed will be denied. We will not take out the denied part of the mail. The inmate will receive a notice slip of the denial as well as the sender. The notice will state what the inmate as well as the sender can do with the denial.
If something in the envelope is denied the whole envelope will be denied. We do not separate the mail.
There are two options for picking up denied mail. The inmate can provide the mail room officer with a pre-addressed and stamped envelope or the sender can come pick the denied mail up. If you are coming to pick up a denial please bring the yellow denial slip you received as this will make it easier and faster to find the denied piece of mail. Denied mail can be picked up Monday through Friday from 8am to 3:30pm.
