How to send money to a inmate in this prison: You may send a money order to inmates at Elmore. These may be postal money orders. Check with the facility to see if a type of money order is on their approved list. The inmate must have a funds list and the sender has to be on that list, or the money order will be returned.The funds list is separate from the visitation list. People on the funds list must be approved, just as the people on the visitaiton list. When filling out the money order make sure to include his AIS number.

You may now also send funds to ADOC inmates via Western Union online, and funds are generally on their books within a matter of hours. How to do this:

1. Go to http://www.westernunion.com/ and set up an account.

2. Look for the "How To" section, then "Send an Inmate Payment Online".

3. When it asks you for the account number, enter the AIS number and inmate's last name like this with no spaces: 123456SMITH

4. (I would suggest putting your inmate's first & last name on the next ("optional") line to just to be safe!)
