Sending a Mail/Care Package

One of the most cost-effective ways to stay in touch with an inmate is to write to them. Granted writing to them may take a little bit longer to receive and send as it takes the St. James Parish Prison a day or two to sort through all the mail.

But, feel free to send an inmate letters and pictures.

Sending Money

When you visit an inmate, you can bring down the money order to put money on the inmate’s books. If you do not plan on visiting the inmate any time soon, you are free to mail a money order to the mailing address at the St. James Parish Prison.

Phone calls

Inmates can either make collect calls from the St. James Parish Prison or they can get a plan with Securus Technologies.

If the inmate is a pre-trial detainee, most people stick with collect calls. If the inmate is serving out a full-blown sentence many people will go with the plans from Securus Technologies.

It will be completely up to you and the inmate to decide what to do and what will work for your situation.

Just remember that collect calls will make you in charge of paying those fees. Collect calls also cannot be picked up on a mobile phone either.

If you go with Securus Technologies, inmates will have no problem whatsoever being able to call a mobile phone number.

Visitation

Before you visit an inmate, you will want to contact the St. James Parish Prison to ensure that the inmate is in the facility and not appearing in court.
