Effective 12/08/2014 the Monterey County Jail will not allow greeting cards of any type to be mailed in to any inmate. This will pertain to store bought cards, handmade cards or any other sort of greeting card. There will be no exception to this restriction.

Inmates will still be able to purchase greeting cards via “commissary” and send them out of the facility, but no cards will be allowed to come into the facility.

This restriction will stay in place until further notice. All other mail will continue to be allowed per MCJ policy and procedure, at this point.
