Mail to Inmates No Longer in Custody

The jail will not forward any mail received for inmates who have been transferred to another facility or released. Mail delivered for an inmate who is no longer in the custody of the Washington County Jail will be returned to the sender. As a result, all mail addressed to inmates must include a return address.
