Lake Charles, LA –


            The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office is currently contracted with a company to provide electronic mail services to all inmates.  These changes are being made in an effort to streamline operations, improve communications, and ensure the safety and well-being of inmates and staff, all while providing a quick and efficient way for inmates to receive letters and photographs electronically.

            Starting September 1, all inmate mail should be addressed to a location offsite, where it will be processed and scanned into the system.  The mail will be delivered to the inmates on a password-protected kiosk.  Starting September 1 all inmate mail must be sent to the following address:

            Smart Communications / Calcasieu Correctional Center OR Calcasieu Sheriff’s Prison

            Inmate Name / Inmate ID#

            P.O. Box 9169    

            Seminole, FL 33775-9169


Any mail received at the CCC after September 15, will be returned to the sender. 

Friends and family members are encouraged to subscribe to MailGuard tracker at https://www.mailguardtracker.com/; you will be able to create a free account and view delivery status, receive notifications on rejected mail, and download copies of mail that has been received and processed.  Upon the release of an inmate, they will be able to log in to their account at https://www.smartinmate.com/ and download their messages and photographs. 

Legal mail, court documents, bank statements, and publications will continue to be sent to the Calcasieu Correctional Center directly at P.O. Box 2017 Lake Charles, LA 70602.
