Sending a Mail

The Dover Jail will allow inmates to receive letters from their loved ones back home. These letters will be monitored and examined by a staff member employed by the Dover Jail.

The Dover Jail has the right to refuse, dispose of, or return any letter that does not follow their strict guidelines.
