Inmate Correspondence


The inmate telephone system has been contracted through Global Tel*Link, a national company providing inmate telephone services. The system provides telephones for each dayroom and allows the inmate to make collect telephone calls. Although inmates are allowed to make collect calls, not all telephone carriers will accept collect calls.

Global Tel*Link has established an Advance Pay Program, which will allow the inmate's family and friends to set up pre-paid accounts. These accounts allow the person receiving the collect calls to pay.


Incoming mail is normally received Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. There is no limit to the volume of mail an inmate may receive, or in the length, language, content or source of letter mail, except where there is clear and convincing evidence to justify a limitation. Incoming mail will be delivered by a staff member within 24 hours after receipt with the exception of Saturdays, Sundays, and national holidays.

The mailing address for the Gloucester County Jail is as follows:

Inmate’s Name
Gloucester County Jail
7502 Justice Drive
Gloucester VA, 23061


All incoming mail is scanned to ensure that no contraband enters the facility, to include:

  • Cigarettes
  • Drugs
  • Inappropriate/suggestive photographs
  • Lighters
  • Matches
  • Personal checks

Newspapers, magazines, and books will be accepted only if they are mailed directly from the publishing house to the jail. Registered and certified mail service is available upon request by the inmate, but must be paid for from inmate funds.
