New Procedure for Inmates Incoming Mail

Good Day Everyone!

We are reaching out to inform you of an important change regarding the mailing address for inmate at the Monroe County Jail. In order to keep contraband out of our facility and to ensure the safety, and security of all inmates and our staff, we have implemented a new mailing address for sending mail to inmates.

Beginning July 1,2024, all inmate mail EXCEPT FOR LEGAL AND MEDICAL MAIL, must be mailed to the following address:


Inmate Name

Inmate Number

Monroe County Jail
P. O. Box 591
Longview, Texas 75606


All Legal and Medical Mail should continue to use our Jail address at:

Monroe County Jail
200 South Main
Clarendon, Ar 72029


All Non Legal or Medical Mail received at 200 South Mail on or after July 1, 2024,for inmates will be returned to sender. 

We appreciate your cooperation in helping us maintain a drug-free facility. Thank you for your understanding and support.


All Inmate Mail should meet the following guidelines:

- All envelopes and mail must include the Inmate's name and Sheriff's Office/Booking ID Number as well as return address. Only mail that is within 8.5 inches wide x11 inches tall will be accepted.

- Mail sent to inmates must contain No more than 5 pages. All over 5 pages will NOT be scanned and sent to inmate and will be returned to sender.

- All mail that is scanned into the system will be front side only. Do NOT write on the back pages. Any mail with writing on the back of page will be returned to sender.

- Inmates may receive a maximum of 1 photo per mailing. If more than 1 photo is mailed, the entire letter and all its contents will be returned to sender and nothing will be scanned in or delivered to inmate.

- No legal or medical mail will be accepted. Legal and Medical mail must be sent to the facility where the inmate is housed following the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Mail Guidelines.

- No magazines, newspapers, bulk mail or books will be accepted at P.O. Box 591, Longview Texas 75606 and will be returned to sender.  These must be sent to the facility where the inmate is housed following Monroe County Sheriff's Office Mail Guidelines.

- Inmates can securely view it on the kiosks or tablets (if applicable) within the facility.


Once the mail is received for processing it will be scanned in at the central processing location and then will be sent to inmate electronically via the same messaging system referenced above and the inmate can the view it on the kiosk in their cell.


There will be no exceptions for receiving mail that does not follow the above guidelines.
