Sending a Mail/Care Package

Inmates will only be permitted to receive a postcard from you. Inmates will not be permitted to receive handwritten letters inside an envelope. All correspondence must be made through a postcard. All post cards must be standard size and they must not contain glitter or stickers.

Please keep in mind that all postcards that you send to an inmate will always first be read by a correctional officer to ensure that there are no illegal conversations going on through the mail. It is to keep everyone inside and outside of the facility safe.

Sending Money

While the Mahaska County Jail provides their inmates with three meals a day, inmates will also need to purchase other various things from the commissary. The commissary is just like when we go to the grocery store. All items will cost money.

You can send a money order with the inmate’s information on it to deposit funds into his or her account.

Phone calls

When it comes to an inmate calling you, they will have one of two options here at the Mahaska County Jail. An inmate will either be able to use the prepaid service from Global Tel Link or they will be able to call you with collect calls.

Majority of the inmates will opt in to use the prepaid service from Global Tel Link since there are no limitations when they are trying to call their loved ones like there is with collect calls.
