Inmates are allowed to send and receive 1st class letters from both friends and family. All letters are subject to search for contraband items; however, letters are not read unless the inmate has been placed on the readable mail list for a security reason.
Mail should be addressed to the inmate using the full name and inmate number, plus housing location, if known, to:
P.O. Box 2
Lansing, Kansas 66043-0002
Inmates may establish a telephone list of up to 20 individual phone numbers that they wish to call. They may add or delete numbers to this list only during their 120-day review month. Inmate phones are subject to monitoring.
Inmates have access to coinless telephones at various times throughout the day during yard periods. Each living unit has specified periods when inmates are allowed to make phone calls during the evening/night hours. The inmate phone system will only allow the inmate to make collect phone calls. There is even a collect service charge for local calls.
EMERGENCY PHONE CALLS
Inmates can not receive telephone calls. In the event of a verifiable emergency, i.e., serious illness or death in the family, you can call the facility at (913) 727-3235. During regular business hours your call will be forwarded to the inmate counselor's office where you can relay the emergency message, and the counselor will speak with the inmate. After hours or on weekends and holidays, an emergency message will be typed by the facility operator and delivered to the inmate as soon as practicable, by a shift supervisor. It is imperative that you, as the caller, are able to provide necessary information such as hospital phone numbers, etc. so that the urgency of the message can be verified.
