Default How to send money to ASPC Perryville?

How do I send money to my girlfriend at ASPC Perryville? Do I just mail a US postal money order to her?

The AZ DOC doesn't provide clear instructions regarding what to do exactly. As best I understand it, I have to make the money order payable to the ADC and for the account of the inmate's name. Then I mail it to:

Inmate name, Inmate #
ASPC-Perryville, Unit #
P.O. Box 3500
Goodyear, AZ 85395

Is this right? Am I doing this correctly? Or have I missed anything?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

On the money order or cashiers check put her name and her ADC #. Be sure to address the envelope as such...you have it switched at the begining:

ASPC-Perryville, Unit #
Inmate name, Inmate #
P.O. Box 3500
Goodyear, AZ 85395

ntshadow1 and Heather2456, thank you much very for the information!

I have seen both versions of the address where the inmate's name is in the first or second line. I have been placing her name on the top line without any problems. However, I am going to make the change you suggested.

There is not alot of room on the first line of the money order, however, it should look like such;

Arizona Department of Corrections
Jane Smith #123456
ASPC-Perryville-Unit/P.O. Box 3500
Goodyear, AZ. 85395

Now remember... THIS IS FOR MONEY ORDERS ONLY

As for sending letters, you have it right by putting the prisoners name on the first line, as that is the most personal, as you are not sending the letter to the prison, but your loved one, so always put their name first, as they come fisrt. The prison mail staff only cares if their name, and number is on the letter, and don't care much about how it got their. Good luck...

On average I send 2 Postal Money orders a month. I just write:

ADC For "His Name" #00000
His Complete Address

Then I put it in a card or a letter and ADC takes it out and posts it. I usually mention it in the letter so he knows to check his books.

Very Good point... It is always good to say you enclosed a money order in your letter to your friends or loved ones. However, be sure to send the money order, because when a prisoner gets a letter saying he received money, but there was no posted money to his books because you mistakenly forgot to enclose it, he can get in trouble, as he'll assume DOC is messing with him, which will cause him to become angry. Believe it or not, this happens often. So be sure, if you say you did something, you actually do it.

I always write "inmate banking" on the outside of the envelope.

Default Fastest Way

I have delt with Julie (ext. 24261), who manages Inmate Banking at Perryville, from the beginning. Her suggestion, which I've followed without any problems is as follows:

Simply address the Postal money order as you would normally and send it to Perryville with this address:
A.S.P.C. Perryville
P.O. Box 3000
Goodyear, AZ 85395
Attn: Inmate Banking

When done this way, it eliminates the dwell time inthe mail room, removing it from the Yard mail and rerouting to Banking. This format can save as much as 3 days in time to post.
