Sending money to three prisons has changed
As of Oct. 1, Folsom, Mule Creek and CSP-Sacramento are participating in a 90-day pilot program intended to streamline the process for sending checks and money orders to inmates. The new service allows for incoming inmate monies to be mailed to a secured centralized depository. The process for electronic fund transfers will remain the same for all prisons.
