Offenders at Meherrin River Regional Jail are encouraged to stay in touch with their friends and family. There is no limit on outgoing mail; however, outgoing mail will be marked with "Meherrin River Regional Jail Offender". When you are sending a letter please include the offender's name and housing assignment (if known).

All outgoing mail will be screened for contraband, for prevailing security reasons.

Offenders are authorized to receive money orders. Outside subscriptions to newspapers, magazines, or soft back books that come directly from a publisher are allowed but must be pre-approved by the Mail Officer prior to ordering. Only one (1) magazine or newspaper subscription is allowed at a time. Offenders can possess one (1) magazine and two (2) books from the publisher.

Questions concerning offender mail may be directed to our Mail Officer.
