The History of Northern Nevada Correctional Center
The Northern Nevada Correctional Center prison is located in Carson City, the Silver State’s capital. Carson City is on the Nevada California border at Lake Tahoe. The prison is a short drive south of Interstate 580 on the southern and eastern edge of Carson City. It is about 6.5 hours north of Las Vegas. Carson City is a combined municipal government, so the county is also referred to as Carson City. The county used to be Ormsby County.
Northern Nevada Correctional Center opened in 1964 with three units for inmates. It has since expanded to 10 units, with the other seven added after 2008.
It is a male medium-security facility with an in-patient medical care unit and a mental health unit. The prison also has an intermediate medical care unit and a structured care unit (SCU). The SCU is for inmates with medical issues that require more monitoring than an inmate without medical needs.
Northern Nevada Correctional Center houses 1,619 inmates.

Sending Pictures to Northern Nevada Correctional Center
Mailing pictures to inmates at Northern Nevada Correctional Center means following rules. The prison has rules for mailing anything to inmates, not just pictures. You must follow these rules. If you send something that does not comply with the prison’s rules, the inmate will not get the mail. The mail may be returned to you, or it may be destroyed. If you send something illegal, you can be charged with a crime.

The prison also limits how many photos an inmate may receive each day. Inmate Photos knows these rules. We can divide your pictures into separate mailings to meet the daily limits for an inmate at Northern Nevada Correctional Center.
If you send too many pictures, the staff determines which pictures get delivered and which pictures are not delivered.
Some other rules are:
The staff opens all mail and inspects it. Pictures that violate the rules are not distributed.
Pictures must have the inmate’s name and number on the back.
Inmates may not receive pictures that show sexual activity, violence or gang-related symbols or activity.
Pictures can be no larger than 8×10″.
Each image counts as a picture. If you put four pictures on a single sheet, that counts as 4 pictures and also counts toward the daily limit.

Sending Inmates Photos by Email
You can send pictures by email. Nevada uses Corrlinks.com to handle all emails. If you send pictures via email, those pictures must follow the prison rules, which are the same as mailing pictures via the Post Office. The staff reads all emails. Pictures are printed on plain paper in black and white.
Northern Nevada Correctional Center allows inmates to have an electronic device that will store pictures, an MP3 player in this case. The use of the MP3 player is subject to good behavior. If the inmate violates prison rules, the MP3 player is taken away, and it can be erased. All the stored pictures are gone. If the inmate violates prison rules and is removed from the general population, his belongings are stored and returned later.
