Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this new mail delivery process needed?

Postal mail remains an access point to introduce contraband and illicit drugs into correctional facilities, which poses a significant health and safety risk. This new process will increase safety while allowing incarcerated individuals to continue corresponding with loved ones in a timely manner.

How does the new mail processing system work?

•  Mail is sent via PO Box to a central processing facility, operated by Pigeonly.

•  All non-legal postal mail is opened, screened for contraband, and scanned into an electronic document that closely resembles the original hardcopy, including color.

•  The scanned mail is shared electronically with the facility through a secure dashboard for further screening and review.

•  The scanned mail is printed at Pigeonly’s processing facility and shipped to the facility for distribution to the incarcerated recipients, eliminating the risk of contraband.

•  For families and friends of inmates, Pigeonly provides an easy-to-use website (www.pigeonly.com) that allows them to create, send, and track delivery of printed photos, letters, greeting cards, and postcards from a cell phone, tablet, or computer.

How is legal mail handled?

Attorneys will continue to send legal mail directly to the facility for delivery to their incarcerated clients.
Solano County – Detention Facilities continues to accept packages directly through postal mail (soft covered books, periodicals, newspapers, magazines, etc.).

How long does it take for an incarcerated individual to receive mail?
