Storage space consists of an individual’s locker. Locks may be purchased in the institution commissary.
The amount of personal property is limited to those items which can be neatly and safely placed in the inmate’s locker. This includes letters, newspapers, and the allotted number of books and magazines (five each). Under no circumstances will any materials be accumulated to the point where they become a fire, sanitation, security, or housekeeping hazard.
Civilian clothing of any type (except athletic apparel) is not authorized. All clothing, except socks, are stamped with the inmate’s name and number and are to be neatly stored in the individual locker. A limited number of personal sweatshirts and sweat pants may be purchased in the commissary. Individual wash cloths and towels are issued to inmates.
Inmates are allowed to maintain legal materials and supplies (not to exceed a locally established volume limit) in their locker. If necessary, an additional storage area for your legal material may be requested through the Unit Manager.
Hobby Craft Materials
Storage space may be obtained through the Recreation Supervisor within the Hobby Shop. Disposal of completed hobby craft work must be arranged immediately after completion. Crafts like oil paintings, leather craft, ceramics, and copper works are not permitted in the housing unit.
The total value of an inmate’s accumulated Commissary items (excluding special purchases) will be limited to the monthly spending limitations.
Radios and Watches
An inmate may not own or possess more than one approved radio or watch at any time. Proof of ownership, through appropriate property receipts, will be required. No inmate property may have value exceeding $100. Radios with a tape recorder and/or tape player are not authorized. Radios will be inscribed with the inmate’s name and registration number by Commissary at the time of purchase. Only walk-man type radios are permitted and headphones are required at all times.
While an inmate is in holdover status, he may not purchase, own, or possess a radio or watch. Inmates may not give any items of value to another inmate, i.e., radio, watch, sneakers, or Commissary items.
Inmates may have a plain wedding band (without stones) and, with prior approval, a religious medal without stones.
