Staff will make reasonable efforts to identify the inmate for whom the mail is intended. Mail not adequately addressed and for whom the intended recipient cannot be identified will be returned to the sender with the reason for return noted on the outside of the envelope.Incoming mail for inmates must have a return address as defined by the USPS, including an identifiable first and last name.
