Resident Mail

by Nancy Burghart — last modified May 25, 2023 11:10 AM

The Kansas Department of Corrections will not accept any item mailed into a correctional facility other than letters or photographs. Residents may purchase postage only through their facility’s canteen. The Department does not allow a resident to receive stamps. 

Please note that any incoming or outgoing mail other than legal, official or privileged mail may be inspected or read at any time in accordance with KAR 44-12-601. 

Incoming resident mail should be addressed as follows:  

Envelope for Inmate Communications

Remember to include the resident’s KDOC registration number with the resident’s full name in the address of the correspondence or the mail will not be delivered. The envelope also must contain the sender’s name and address as well or the letter will not be delivered. 

You may check a resident’s location and status on the Department’s Kansas Adult Supervised Population Electronic Repository (KASPER). Facility mailing addresses are available from the facilities index.

For more information about resident mail, please review Kansas Administrative Regulation (K.A.R.) 44-12-601, Resident Writing and Other Resident Communications or Publications. Also, Internal Management Policy and Procedure (IMPP) 12-120 Security and Control: Control of Resident Personal Property provides additional information.
