Sending a Mail/Care Package

Nationwide Inmate Records Online Check

Jail records, court & arrest records, mugshots and even judicial reports.

Mail is a great way to keep in contact with an offender while they are in the Catawba Pre-Release Center.

The offender is permitted to send and receive letters. All letters will be checked for contraband. If you do not follow the strict guidelines that the Catawba Pre-Release Center sets forth, your mail will not make it to the inmate it is addressed to and you may lose mail rights.

Sending Money

Just like nearly every other state facility, the Catawba Pre-Release Center uses JPay.

JPay is a great service that allows the inmate to receive their money immediately when a family or friend deposits it in their account. This will allow the inmate to use their money right when they get it rather than having to wait days before it is touchable.

Phone calls

You will not be permitted to contact an offender by via telephone nor will you be permitted to leave them a message. You will be required to wait for an offender to contact you via telephone.

Inmates will be permitted to use the phone. Typically, phones will be available during the daytime hours if the Catawba Pre-Release Center is not under a lockdown.

Calls will only be permitted to be 15-minutes in length.
