All inmates of the Hancock County Jail may send and receive correspondence through the U.S. Postal Service. No mail, notes or photographs may be dropped off at the jail for inmates. Mail that is received at the Hancock County Jail for an inmate that has been released or transferred to another facility will be returned to the sender. The exception to this would be if they are “temped out”, meaning temporarily in another facility and we know for sure, they will be back, we hold it in their file.
