Inmate Search

First and foremost, the Elba Work Release is a state facility. What does it being a state facility have to do with searching for an inmate?

That means the Elba Work Release is under the operation of the Alabama Department of Corrections. The Alabama Department of Corrections will be the agency that by law has to keep an updated database of ALL inmates they have in custody.

You can locate this database on the Alabama Department of Corrections website. This database can be searched by the inmate’s number or their name.

Sending a Mail/Care Package

Mail time is the favorite time of the day for these inmates in the Elba Work Release. Inmates can receive letters and photographs from their loved ones.

Inmates can also get books, newspapers, and magazines through the mail as well. These items will be required to be new and be sent to the Elba Work Release from the bookstore or the publisher. All books need to be paperback. The Elba Work Release will not accept hardcover books.

All mail should be made out to the inmate and the inmate’s number on it as well. Keep in mind that the inmate may receive the mail late as well because it goes through the mailroom where a correctional officer will review the letter or items prior to allowing the inmate to have it.

Sending Money
