Mail Guidelines

Starting August 8th, personal mail has a new address.  Mail intended for inmates at either facility must be sent to an offsite address, where it will be scanned, and available to view on inmate tablets.  The actual letter will not be delivered to the jail, only an electronic copy.  Legal mail will still be delivered to inmates, as per the current practice.


The new mailing address for inmates is:


Offender First and Last Name

Offender ID Number

Montgomery County Jail (TN)

(Do not abbreviate)

P.O. Box247
