Sending Money to an inmate in Maryland

Family and friends of an inmate may send funds by United States Postal Money Order.  Make payable to the inmate's full name and ID number, be sure to also include your full name, and complete address in the from and address lines of the money order.

There are two parts to an inmate account.  The Reserve Account and Active Account. The reserve account has money an inmate may not spend. The Division set up this account so the inmate will have some funds when they are released. Some of the inmate's money goes into the reserve account automatically every month until the account reaches the set level.

Inmates may spend money from their active account. Money from relatives or other sources will go into the inmate’s active account. The inmate can use money from his or her active account to buy items from the commissary. An inmate may send money outside from their active account, but he or she must have approval to do so. An inmate needs special approval from the warden to send certain amounts of money.

re: Ordering Commissary Items for inmates/Quarterly packages

I don't know of anyway you can directly order from the commissary.  If anyone does know please leave a reply.  I can however tell you that you can order Quarterly packages for inmates located at MCI Jessup through a company called Union Supply Direct.  These packages contain many of the items that you may be interested in sending to your inmate.  For more information on sending quarterly packages to inmates read our guide.  Also, you could send money to the inmate's commissary account and then they could order the items themselves.  Many times people don't want to do this because they want to be sure the funds get used for the items the inmate is requesting.
