If you know someone in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison in Louisiana and want to send photos to them, Inmate Photos can help. We send pictures from family and friends to inmates in prisons, jails, and youth detention centers around the US. We know the rules. We know the procedures. We make the process easy.
Sending pictures to someone in prison or jail is highly recommended by counselors and mental health professionals who work with inmates. Pictures help the person stay connected to family and friends.
EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH PRISON
The prison is located just north of Baton Rouge in the Scotlandville community. The sheriff’s office is just down the road. Both are just east of the Interstate 110 loop. The Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport terminals are between the prison and the sheriff’s office.
East Baton Rouge Parish Prison is the county jail for East Baton Rouge Parish. A parish in Louisiana is the same thing as a county in other states. Louisiana relies on the French word instead of the English word county.
East Baton Rouge Parish Prison is used to house male and female inmates in different parts of the complex. About 1,500 people are typically incarcerated at the facility at any time. The great majority of the inmates are men. More than 4,000 people are processed through the center each year.
Because this is the parish facility, all categories of inmates are held here. Some may serve their entire sentence at the center and some are held pending transfer to a state or federal facility. The East Baton Rouge Parish Prison is operated by the sheriff’s office.

Anything that may be a threat to the security of the prison is not allowed. This includes threats to the inmates, the staff or the overall facility. Examples include information on escaping from the prison, threats to people within or outside the facility and instructions on how to make homemade tools and weapons.
You cannot send anything written with a marker or crayons. You cannot use glitter or add scent to the mailing. If your children want to draw pictures to send, you need to take a photo of the pictures and send that.
The administration reserves the right to decide if any image, picture, or photo violates prison rules. If the picture violates the rules, it may be destroyed or returned to you. Depending on the violation, you could also be charged with breaking a law.
The staff opens and inspects all inmate mail to make sure everything follows the rules. Packages that do not meet the rules are returned to you. When you use Inmate Photos to mail your pictures, you know the package will be received and opened for inspection. Making sure the pictures meet the rules is up to you. We do not screen your images.
When you use Inmate Photos to send pictures, we make sure you get a copy of the most recent rules. You look over the regulations before you send the pictures to make sure they meet the requirements.
