Effective Wednesday, July 01, 2020:
The Chatham County Detention Center moves to electronic mail service for inmates. All non-legal and non-commercial mail for inmates at the Chatham County Detention Center must be sent electronically through www.JailATM.com or mailed to the following address:
JailATM.com – Chatham County Jail
INMATE ID #: INMATE FULL NAME (Defendant Identification Number/DIN)
925B Peachtree St. NE, Box 2062
Atlanta, GA 30309
As drugs and contraband in mail have risen in correctional facilities around the nation, it has become necessary to move to electronic communications for inmates. This move will provide a safer environment for both inmates and staff.
All non-legal and non-commercial mail sent to the address given will be processed by the mail scanning vendor and delivered to the inmate electronically via kiosks or tablets. The original mail item received will be destroyed.
Clearly print the inmate name and ID number on the outside of the envelope or postcard. Failure to include this information could result in lost or misdirected mail.
Send electronic correspondence and picture attachments through www.JailAtm.com
Normal mail rules still apply; content violations may prevent delivery of the item to the inmate. Prohibited material includes:
- Racy or pornographic images.
- Pictures or descriptions of illegal activities.
- Pictures or descriptions of self-defense tactics, locksmith instructions, escape techniques, or similar material deemed hazardous by correctional staff.
- Pictures or descriptions of the use or manufacture of firearms, explosives, or other weapons.
- Drugs or bio-hazards on the envelope or contents.
- Threatening or violent content.
To find the inmate ID number, go to www.JailATM.com
Continue to send all books, financial (cashier checks and/or money orders sent to inmates for deposit to their account), legal and commercial mail directly to the Chatham County Detention Center. A staff member opens all legal and religious mail in front of the inmate. Inmates may only have four (4) paperback books, magazines, and other publications in their possession at a time. This does not include religious items received from legitimate religious organizations or legal materials.
After August 01, 2020 all non-legal and commercial mail not addressed properly will be returned or discarded.
