New mail process for Henry County jail

Starting today, mail for Henry County Jail inmates first will have to go through a processing center in San Antonio, Texas.

To send a letter, use this address: Henry County Jail VA, Inmate Name, Inmate ID number (no commissary PIN), P.O. Box 2925, PMB 79078, San Antonio, TX 78299-2925

The envelope must have a complete, legible return address, including the sender’s first and last name, or the mail will not be scanned.

Mail arriving with postage due will be refused and returned to the sender, if possible.

A few rules:

  • Mail may be 10 or fewer pages per envelope, and page sizes can’t be any bigger than 8.5 by 11 inches. Mail can include written or typed pages, photos, drawings or greeting cards but not Polaroid pictures.
  • Do not send mail with glitter, glue, 3D elements, lights or electronic elements. Books, magazines or packages are not accepted at the processing center.

As soon as mail is received by the inmate, the inmate can respond immediately by sending an instant message through the secure messaging application on the inmate tablets. To start messaging with an inmate, ask the inmate to take the first step and send a message to a valid cell phone number. When the inmate sends the message, you will receive a text notification on your cell phone with a link to set up an account.

All legal mail, newspapers and money orders should be sent to 3250 Kings Mountain Road, Martinsville, VA, 24112. The jail does not accept magazines, books or packages for inmates.
