Default Mail send to Inmate!! - is mail read by facilities?

Does anyone know if letters are read that are send to inmates? I understand that all mail is opened and I can understand that. I had
a letter that was send and the inmate never got it. Inmate wrote me
and asked me if I had wrote him since he did me last time. Any information
is appreciated. God Bless All!!!! Mother1952

Yes they are read....Here is some of what the ADOC says about mail:

F. Inspection
1. Incoming mail, inc luding “Legal Mail”, shall be inspected for contraband
and/or for abuse of the mail privilege. Outgoing mail may be inspected for
2. All contraband will be disposed of in accordance with AR 306,
Contraband and Evidence Management.
3. Every effort should be made to ensure that all incoming letters and
packages are delivered within 72 hours after receipt at the institution, other
than weekends and holidays. Inmates will be notified of rejected mail in
accordance with procedures contained in V.G.
