Items which may be retained by an inmate are limited for sanitation and security reasons and to ensure that excess personal property is not accumulated which would constitute a fire hazard or impair staff searches of the living area. These limits are defined in the Institution Supplement on Inmate Personal Property.
Storage space consists of an individual locker. Locks may be purchased in the institution commissary. Locks may not be tampered with in any way.
MAILING OF INMATE PROPERTY
Inmates who are releasing from the institution may have personal items mailed into the institution. A Package Authorization Form must be requested through the Unit Counselor and must be approved by the Unit Manager who will sign and distribute the appropriate form.
Inmates may have a plain wedding band (without stones) and, with prior approval, a religious medal without stones.
