Juab County Jail Mailing Policies and Prohibited Contraband
Inmates at the Juab County Jail are allowed to both send and receive mail, provided the mail does not violate any of the jail’s policies. Mail for Juab County Jail inmates should be sent to the following address:
(Inmate Name Here)
C/O Juab County Jail
P.O. Box 133
Nephi, UT 84648
Virtually all items are considered contraband and will not be delivered to inmates. The only items which the Juab County Jail permits in incoming mail are:
- Money Orders
Money orders will be credited to the inmate’s account, at which point he or she can use the funds to make phone calls, pay for jail services, or buy items from the Juab County Jail commissary. Commissaries carry products similar to what you would find in a convenience store, such as snacks, writing supplies, and hygiene products. Even if jail rules prevent you from mailing a certain item to your loved one, there’s a chance he or she might be able to buy something similar at the commissary.
In addition to letters, photographs, and money orders, the jail will also accept books, as long as two conditions are met:
- The book must be a paperback. Hardcover books are prohibited.
- The book must be sent straight to the jail from the retailer. For instance, you could order a book on Amazon and set the jail as the delivery address. If you had the book delivered to your home and attempted to send it to the jail from your address, the mail would be refused.
Needless to say, jail personnel will screen all incoming mail to confirm that it does not present any safety hazards or otherwise violate jail rules. Any materials depicting or promoting the use of narcotics, the use of illegal weapons, gang activity, profanity, or obscenity will be intercepted. Since your mail will be screened, you should think twice about including anything you would not want a stranger to potentially read.
Accepting Prepaid Phone Calls from Inmates: How to Load a Financial Account
Unfortunately, Juab County Jail rules prohibit friends and family members from calling inmates. However, inmates are allowed to place outgoing calls, provided their accounts contain adequate funds to cover the cost of the phone call.
One way to add funds to an inmate’s account is to send a money order to the jail at the mailing address supplied above. You can also:
- Deposit funds online using your debit or credit card. To start, navigate to www (dot) govpaynow (dot) com, which is the website the jail uses to process financial transactions. You’ll see a blank field prompting you to enter your “pay location code” (PLC). Type in “5500,” which is the PLC for Juab County Jail, and follow the prompts. Be prepared with your loved one’s inmate number.
- Make a deposit in person. This method might be convenient if your daily commute happens to take you near the jail. Simply find the kiosk in the jail’s front lobby and follow the instructions on the screen. The street address for the Juab County Jail is:45 West Center Street
Nephi, UT 84648
The jail is located just south of the intersection of West 100 North and South Main Street, near the Nephi Post Office and a Wells Fargo bank branch.
