Sending a Mail/Care Package
Most inmates are only housed here temporarily, so you should not send mail to anyone only at the Petersburg Jail for a day or two.
For inmates who are housed here for a longer time period, you can send mail. If you want to send mail, send it to:
Inmate's name and booking number
122 South 6th Street PO Box 139, Petersburg, IL, 62675
You can also set up to have books or newspapers shipped directly from a publisher to the inmate, but you should not send them yourself, as they will be discarded before being delivered to an inmate.
The best way to send money to someone housed here is to pay bail. You can pay bail by going to the Petersburg Jail any time day or night. The jail is at this address:
122 South 6th Street
PO Box 139, Petersburg, IL, 62675
You would need to pay bail either in cash or through a bail bond. You can learn about bail bonds by clicking here.
