Default FAO Card swappers Mail changes for Colorado DOC

Hi everyone

Please note that with effect from the 1st March inmates in Colorado DOC will no longer be allowed to recieve greeting cards. It may be that any cards sent will be photocopied and the copy given to the inmate we are awaiting further clarification on this.

E cards can be sent via jpay.

Thank you for all you do for inmates

Thanks for sharing! Where did you find this out at? I heard this was happening in different states but never heard anything for Colorado.

Its being discussed in the Colorado forum , I have a friend in Colorado Doc and he told me that with effect from 1st March 2018 we can no longer send greeting cards and others have reported the same.
We are waiting for confirmation.

I talked to my husband and he said all the inmates at his facility were notified. He said May 1st (but Im guessing he was mistaken for March 1st).

I wonder if a card could be scanned and printed out on plain paper if they'd receive it?

Yes I think so as the mail room now scan cards and give them to the inmate. I think they would accept scans.

In color, or is it just black and white that they do?

They scan in black and white but they accept colour pictures so not sure about colour copies
