Inmate Mail Procedures to Change at Elkhart County Correctional Facility

Mail Procedures to Change at Elkhart County Correctional Facility

Beginning October 1, inmates will no longer receive their non-legal and non-commercial mail at the Elkhart County Correctional Facility. Inmate mail needs to be sent to:


JailATM.com- Elkhart County Jail

Inmate Id: Inmates full name

2043 South Bend Ave Box #309

South Bend, IN 46637


All non-legal and non-commercial mail sent to the address given will be processed by the mail scanning vendor and delivered to the inmate electronically via kiosks or tablets, and the original mail item will be destroyed.

The inmate name and ID number must be clearly printed on the outside of the envelope or postcard. Failure to include this information could result in lost or misdirected mail. Electronic correspondence, including picture attachments, can also be sent immediately at www.jailATM.com. To find the inmate ID number, go to http://www.elkhartcountysheriff.com/divisions/corrections/inmate-lookup/.

Normal mail rules still apply and content violations may prevent delivery of the item to the inmate. Prohibited materials include:

  • Racy or pornographic pictures
  • Pictures or descriptions of illegal activities
  • Pictures or descriptions of the use or manufacture of firearms, explosives, or other weapons
  • Drugs or biohazards on the envelope or contents
  • Threatening or violent content

All legal and commercial mail should continue to be sent to the facility directly.
