The Dover City Jail is simply a holding pen. Anyone arrested in Dover city limits will initially be sent to this jail, but they will not typically stay at this jail long-term. Most offenders will be to the Kent County Jail after initial processing. For that reason, most services like sending mail and inmate phone calls are more limited than most jails and prisons.

All mail must have a return address. All mail is processed through a central mail room and all non-legal mail is subject to inspection, which may delay delivery. No property will be accepted through the mail.

Remember though, most inmates are not at Dover City Jail long term, so the delay in the postal service with mail might mean your mail arrives after the inmate has been transferred to a different location.
