Q: Can my youth send and receive mail?
A: Youth may send and receive mail from anyone (except adults or youth in other penal institutions, on probation or parole, or those restricted by the home court or NCORC) The original party must send all mail. Third party mail will be considered contraband and will not be accepted.
This mail will be filed in the youths chart until the youth is released.
Mail will be searched for contraband. Mail that is not a threat to the safety and security of the program, staff, residents, or public, will not be censured. If mail is censured, staff will document the action. Any mail containing contraband or questionable material will be given to the Director for action.
Outgoing mail is sent Monday thru Friday. All mail must be properly addressed (for both recipient and sender) or it will be returned to youth for corrections. Youth may send two letters per week free of charge.
