How long will it take an inmate to receive a letter?


  1. Layla says:

    It can take anywhere from 3 days to a month, it really just depends on how backed up the mail room is at that prison. I know that at Chino Prison (CIM) it’s taking about 3 weeks for inmates to get their mail right now. It usually takes about a week though that’s pretty average. You should call the prison’s mail room and ask the staff they should be able to tell you a more specific timeline.

    It depends on the prison, and also, how far the letter has to go to get there. My fiance is almost 3 hours away from me. If I put a letter in the mail, say, on Monday, he will get it on Tuesday. However, some facilities do get more backed up with their mail, especially the larger facilities. Have the person you’re writing to tell you when the letter arrives, keep track of what day you send out a letter and have them tell you when they receive it, after a few times you’ll have a good idea of how long it takes….that’s what we do, my fiance always tells me when he receives a letter, he is in a smaller facility so it only takes a day for him to get it.
