Inmate to Inmate Mail:

Inmates at the Walker County Jail may not receive mail from other inmates
within our facility. Inmate to inmate mail poses a threat to the safety,
security, and good order of this facility. Forwarding inmate to inmate mail
by friends and family members is strictly prohibited. All inmate to
inmate mail will be refused and documented. Inmates may, however, send and
receive mail to/from inmates at other facilities.
