3 Ways of Sending Money to Inmates

  1. Lock Box: A no fee service with a shorter hold time for sending money via money order, personal check, or cashier’s checks.
  2. EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer): A paid service, this is the fastest option with funds posted to inmate’s account within 1 to 3 days.
  3. Mail funds directly to the institution: Never a fee. All funds except Certified Funds are subject to a 30 day hold.

Special Historical Notes

When the prison opened in 1984, it was administered by the warden of the California Medical Facility.  In January 1992, the two prisons were separated administratively and a warden was assigned to each prison.
