(** A picture ID will be required to withdraw funds**)


Inmate Mail

The Cumberland County Department Of Corrections maintains a mail system in which all inmates can send and receive mail. All incoming mail will be subject to search ( except legal mail from an Attorney or Law firm). Any mail from an attorney will be opened in the presence of the inmate as not to infringe on the confidentiality of the attorney/client.

All mail should be sent in a S.A.S.E to:

Inmate name / County #
Cumberland County Dept of Corrections
P.O Box 717
Bridgeton, NJ 08302


Inmates are allowed to receive books, magazines, and pictures. All books and magazines must be soft back and must come directly from the publisher. Only 7 pictures up to a size 5"x7" will be accepted (NO NUDITY). All others will be subject to confiscation and destruction.

If sending money by mail, only United States Postal Service money orders will be accepted via mail. All money sent via mail will be forwarded to Inmate Accounts. There is a 3 business day hold on all deposited inmate money. Ex: Money deposited on Monday will not be available for inmate use until Thursday.

************* NO CASH OR CHECKS *************

Please do not send any contraband such as drugs, pens, pencils, paper clips, etc. As such infractions will be forwarded to our Special Investigations Unit for investigation and possible prosecution.
