LETTERS OF INCARCERATION
If a former inmate wants a letter of incarceration we need something in writing telling us who it is for, the approximate time incarcerated, and why you need it. We also need a self addressed stamped envelope so it can be mailed back.
If it is another agency, Attorney, or Public Defender, we need the same information faxed to us on company letterhead and it will be faxed back.
