How to Conduct an Inmate Search

The Hall County Correctional Institution has an online inmate population list updated every 15 minutes or so. That way, you can feel confident that you see the most up to date information on a detainee. 

If you need to learn more, you can also call the facility. Their list might not have everything you need, especially if you are searching for a legal record. 

How to Send Mail to an Inmate

You can send mail to an inmate, as long as you include their full name and inmate ID on the envelope. This information should go above the Hall County Correctional Institution’s address. You will also want to have your return address and full name.

If you do not have these details on the envelope, your mail will not be delivered by staff to the inmate. It will either be sent back to you or destroyed.

All mail sent to the Hall County Correctional Institution is scanned and made available to the inmates through a kiosk located in each housing unit. You can have pictures returned by providing a self-addressed envelope and stamp with your letter. 

Please keep in mind that the jail will not accept any goods or personal items for the inmate unless prescribed medication. Also, you will need to include only appropriate content in your letter. Anything else might mean you will no longer be allowed to send the inmate mail.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Inmates need to have funds in their commissary account if they want to buy any items off the list. 

If you want to send them money, you will need to contact the Hall County Correctional Institution and ask for the inmate’s correctional ID. From there, you can contact MoneyGram and have them send money to the facility.

Checks are not accepted, although the Hall County Correctional Institution will take money orders. You will want to ensure that they are made payable to the inmate and that their ID number is present.

How to Visit an Inmate

If you want to visit, please call the facility ahead of time. Your cell phone, wallet, purse, and other bags are not allowed in the facility- the staff asks that you leave them in your car upon arrival. However, you can have dollar bills and coins up to $20.00 for use at the vending machines. 

Make sure that you check-in at the visitor desk. You will need to have a valid photo ID with you and be at least 16 years of age. Head coverings and sunglasses are not permitted; plus, you will want to make sure that you are dressed appropriately for your visit.

Hall County Correctional Institution Commissary Information

The goods sold through the commissary include writing materials, postage, entertainment items, clothes, snacks, and phone calling cards. 

Inmates can place their order by filling out a form that lists all of the goods available. They will need to sign the list for their order to be accepted. Once their order is received, the funds will be removed by staff from their commissary account.

Officers give the forms on Mondays and Wednesdays, then collected from the inmates the next morning. After their commissary order is received, there are no refunds allowed. Additionally, the indigent commissary is only distributed by jail staff on Tuesdays.
