It is a medium security facility that primarily serves to house and transport prisoners as they prepare for their court cases. This is a short-term facility, and inmates and their families should not plan for long incarcerations at the Wilmington City Jail. As such, some services like sending mail may be more limited at this facility than at other jails or prisons.

Sending a Mail/Care Package

Since inmates are usually not located at this facility for longer than a couple of days, sending mail is not recommended. By the time the mail reaches the Wilmington City Jail for processing, screening and delivery to an inmate, he or she has likely already been moved out of the Wilmington City Jail.

That said, you can still send mail to an inmate, just recognize that it might not make it to them before their transfer. If you send mail, send it to:

Inmate's First and Last Name - booking #
11 Poplar Avenue, Wilmington, DE, 19805

Mail will be opened and screened before delivery, and do not send any contraband.

Sending Money

Sending money is also challenging given the short time that inmates stay at this facility. Call the Wilmington City Jail at 302-998-1173 to ask about sending money to an inmate. Do not risk sending cash or providing money to an inmate that might not reach the inmate prior to the transfer out of the jail.

Visitation

Inmates at the Wilmington City Jail can receive visitors. For questions, call 302-998-1173. All visitors need to fill out an application prior to your visiting an inmate. Make sure that you fill out the application accurately and completely, and take note to include any past criminal activity that you may have had. They will run a background check on you.
