Inmate Search

The FCI Greenville is owned by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. What does this have to do with doing a simple inmate search?

The Federal Bureau of Prison will be the agency that oversees keeping an updated inmate roster of all inmates they are in custody.

You can locate the inmate roster on the official Federal Bureau of Prisons. The inmate roster is easy to search through. If you know the inmate’s full name, you will have no issues in finding the inmate in question.

Nationwide Inmate Records Online Check

Jail records, court & arrest records, mugshots and even judicial reports.

Sending a Mail/Care Package

The FCI Greenville has two different types of mail when it comes to incoming mail to the facility.

The mail that you and your friends and family will send will be labeled as general mail. What is general mail, you may ask?

Common mail that will be opened not in the presence of an inmate. This mail is typically only sent by the family and friends of the inmates.

The other type of mail is special mail. This mail will be opened in front of the inmate. This mail is typically mail that the inmate gets from their legal counsel.

Sending Money

While the FCI Greenville gives an inmate three meals a day, inmates will still need money to purchase other items from the prison’s commissary.

You will have the chance to send funds by mailing a money order, using MoneyGram or even Western Union.

Using MoneyGram and Western Union will incur a fee.

Phone calls

You will never be able to get in contact with an inmate via telephone, if you try to call. The FCI Greenville will NOT allow you to leave a phone message for an inmate either.

Inmates will have to make a call to you via telephone. Inmates will be permitted to have a standard 15-minute phone call with you.
