Lovelock Correctional Center is the Department of Corrections’ seventh major prison. It was built and opened in two phases. Phase One opened in 1995 with two 168-bed units. Phase Two began shortly thereafter and has two 84-bed units. The facility can house 1,680 inmates.

The facility is about 10 minutes northeast of Lovelock, just off Interstate 80. Lovelock is the county seat for Pershing County, Nevada. Pershing County is on the west side of the state. It is an hour and 20 minutes northeast of Reno on Interstate 80.

Rules for Sending Photos
Lovelock Correctional Center has photo rules for inmates and people who send pictures to the prison. If you do not follow the rules, the inmate will not get your mail. If you violate the prison’s mail rules, you can also be held accountable.
The prison staff opens all mail and inspects it for contraband. Anything that is not allowed is destroyed.
A few of the rules are:
Nothing sexually explicit.
Pictures must not be larger than 8″x10″.
While that sounds simple, it is not quite that easy. For instance, each image is considered a separate picture. If you put four pictures on the 8×10″ sheet, the prison counts that as four separate pictures. If you put four pictures on two 8×10″ sheets, that is eight pictures.
Prison rules say only 10 pictures per envelope. If you send more than that, the prison staff may destroy some of the pictures. You have no say in what gets passed to the inmate and what gets trashed.
Inmate Photos knows the rules. We can separate your pictures into as many envelopes as needed. We send the envelopes a few days apart, so the mail meets the daily delivery rules.
Mailing pictures means addressing the envelope correctly. You must know the person’s name and the Department of Corrections number. This must go on the envelope thusly:
Name DOC Number Lovelock Correctional Center 1200 Prison Rd. Lovelock, Nevada 89419
Each picture must have the inmate’s name and number on the back as well. If you need help finding the Corrections number, visit the Department of Corrections inmate search webpage.
The Nevada Department of Corrections is moving to an email system for communicating with inmates. The same rules for pictures apply to email.
What is different is how the pictures are handled.
The inmate staff looks at all emails. Emails that are approved are printed, and the printed copy is delivered to the inmate. Pictures are printed in black and white, and plain paper is used.
Inmates cannot respond via email.
