Facility Address

We were not able to find specific mailing instructions for offender mail. The address below is an "educated guess" based on the address that we found on the website, as well as how mail to an offender is usually addressed. It is possible that your mail could be returned, but we hope this information is good enough to get your letter delivered. You may wish to ask the offender for the correct address in your letter, so that future letters are addressed properly.


There may be a link to the facility website below so that you can examine the site for yourself and make a decision as to how to address your mail. There may also be a telephone number on the site that you can call for more information.

Guidelines

Recommended by editor of prisonary.com

  • Postal Money Order


ACCEPTED

  • Money Order


Editor's note: The GADOC website was pretty vague on accepted / rejected payment types. They did mention money orders.

They also had a picture of a postal money order on their website. Therefore we suggest sending them a postal money order.


A VOUCHER IS REQUIRED.

Payments missing a voucher will be returned to the sender!!!


Go to this site to get a voucher:

The computer system will allow you to print three vouchers to a page.


Delivery Address for mailed deposits

Please do not mail offender correspondence such as cards and letters to this deposit address! We have guessed an address above, and added a phone number so that you can determine the best place to send your correspondence to the offender.
