Sending a Mail/Care Package

Letters is just one of the many ways you can stay in contact with an inmate who is in the Yankton Federal Prison Camp.

Letters are the more economical way to stay in contact with an inmate since it only costs a very little amount of money.

However, when writing letters to an inmate, you should also keep in the back of your mind that all incoming and outgoing letters will be read. You should only write what you feel comfortable knowing that someone else will be reading them.

Sending Money

Money can be deposited into the inmate’s account by using MoneyGram and/or Western Union. When using these services, you will be charged a small fee, but the money will be in their accounts within 1-2 business days.

However, if you do not want to pay for the service fee, you can opt into sending a money order to the federal money account address on the FBOP website.

Phone calls

The Yankton Federal Prison Camp will allow inmates to use telephones that are in the common areas during the hours of 7 am to 10pm daily.

The only time an inmate will not have access to these telephones is when the facility is under lockdown, or the inmate is put in solitary confinement.
