PERSONAL CLOTHING AND PROPERTY
Personal clothing is defined as any non-institution issued clothing item approved for inmate retention at the time of commitment or purchased from the Commissary. Clothing may not be borrowed from, exchanged with, given to, or sold to another inmate. Any inmate found not complying with this policy is subject to disciplinary action.
Any article of clothing (government-issued or personal clothing) which has been altered by an inmate becomes contraband (i.e., long-sleeved sweatshirts cannot have the sleeves removed). These items will be confiscated and disciplinary action may be taken. All alterations must be done by the laundry.
A limited amount of personal clothing may be possessed by an inmate. This clothing is to be worn only during specified times, not on work details, except thermal underwear underneath the khaki-colored t-shirt and sweatshirt over the khaki uniform. It is the responsibility of the inmate to maintain personal clothing in a presentable manner bearing the cost of laundering such clothing. In the event personal clothing becomes worn or damaged, the inmate will complete the proper forms with her Unit Counselor to mail or destroy this property. Inmates are not allowed to wear clothing which is black, blue, red, or camouflage in color. Only clothing purchased through the Commissary will be authorized. For specific details consult the Institution Supplement, Inmate Personal Property, 5580.07.
