How to Send Mail or Package

Inmates housed in the Fairfield County Jail are allowed to receive letters from their friends and family members. The jail implemented a new mail system in January of 2021. All mail is sent to a 3rd party provider called TextBehind.

There are 2 ways to send letters to inmates. Friends and family members can use the TextBehind website or mobile phone app to send electronic letters, greeting cards, photos and drawings. Once the electronic letter is submitted and reviewed, the letter will be printed and handed out to inmates.

If the inmate’s friends and family members choose to send hand-written letters to the inmate, the letter will first be sent to the TextBehind address for review. The letter will be photocopied before being released to the inmate.

Mail can be sent to:

Offender First / Last Name and Offender ID Number
Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office (Do not abbreviate facility name)
P.O. Box 247 Phoenix, MD 21131

Funds can be deposited onto an inmate’s account onsite or online. To make a deposit onsite, visit the kiosk located in the lobby of the jail. The kiosk accepts cash, credit and debit cards. To make a deposit online, visit the InmateDeposits website. The website will accept credit or debit cards. The inmate’s full name and facility location will be needed when depositing money online.
