Inmate Mail & Property


General correspondence between an inmate, family and friends is encouraged. Inmates are not allowed to correspond with other inmates housed in the St. Lucie County Jail or inmates housed in any other state or local facility without prior approval of the facility commander of both the sending and receiving facilities.

Privileged & Outgoing Mail

Indigent inmates are provided writing materials and postage if requested to correspond with the above at reasonable intervals. Privileged mail includes mail from attorneys, courts and public officials. Legal packets to correspond with criminal attorneys and/or the courts are also provided, if requested. Outgoing mail being sent by persons incarcerated in our facility may still be sent by means of envelope and letter and/or post cards.

Personal Mail

The St. Lucie County Jail has transitioned to a digital mail system. Starting December 1, 2023, all personal mail will be scanned at a scanning station offsite. Once scanned, inmates will have access to their mail on a tablet. All incoming, personal mail such as letters, pictures and drawings must now be addressed to:

Personal inmate mail address

St. Lucie County Jail, FL 
Inmate Name (example: John Doe) ID Number
P.O. Box 247
Phoenix, MD 21131

Legitimate legal and/or privileged mail is excluded from this policy. To report any mail delivery issues, contact TextBehind support directly at

Please Note: To ensure your mail gets delivered electronically, include:

  • Complete facility name (no abbreviations) and state
  • Inmate's full name and identifier
  • Sender's full name and physical address
  • ONLY personal mail such as letters, pictures and drawings. 

Mail addressed to inmates who are no longer in custody will not be delivered nor will mail that is deemed sexually graphic, sexually explicit, and/or contains obscene gestures.

Follow the guidelines of the facility for checks/money orders, and attorney-client privileged mail and DO NOT send to the new (Phoenix, MD) address. 

Chaplain Services & Library

Due to limited storage space, unauthorized items (books, excess clothing or hygiene products, etc.) are not accepted through the mail. Inmates can request religious reading material from our chaplain services and selected periodicals, books and newspapers at no charge to the inmate through the facility leisure library. Inmates who wish to receive a publication not offered by the leisure library may follow our policy and procedure to purchase one through the facility commissary program. Publications not available through the commissary can be requested and once approved will be purchased directly from the publisher or authorized commercial distributor at the inmate's own expense through our request system.

Inmate Canteen Services

Through our Inmate Canteen Services, inmates can purchase authorized and approved clothing, hygiene and snacks based on the availability of funds in their Inmate Account. Family and friends may fund an inmate's account; see Accounts/Canteen.


In order for an inmate's property to be released, the inmate is first required to fill out a property release slip denoting the name of the individual he/she wishes to pick up the property. Once this has been done, the inmate should then notify the named individual.

The named individual must provide photo identification to pick up the property Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
