Personal Property Limits



Inmate property may be limited for sanitation and security reasons. Excess property can constitute a fire hazard or impair staff searches of the living area. The following list is not all-inclusive, but it is a guide to the kind of items an inmate may be authorized.

Storage Space



Each inmate has been provided a wall locker in which to maintain his personal property. Many of these lockers are the small, half-size lockers lacking adequate space to contain all of an inmate s property.

* One (1) towel and face cloth may be placed at the end of the inmate s bed rail. The towel will be spread fully
open with the face cloth centered on top of it.
*
Shoes may be kept outside of the locker, however, they must be neatly aligned under the bed. Only the amount of shoes authorized by policy are allowed to be maintained in your area. If the bunk is a double bunk and the long side is against the wall, the bottom bunk will display their shoes on the right side, top bunk on the left. (as seen when standing in front of the bed).
*
Thermos (water coolers) may be kept under the bed outside of clear view. However, in accordance with Institutional Supplement 5580.06(e) an inmate may only have one (1) cooler / thermos.
*
Dirty laundry bags (one per inmate) will be hung on the side of the locker. If the locker has no hooks, the laundry bag will be placed on the floor beside the locker. Do not hang laundry bags from the end of the bed.
*
Inmates who currently have coats, may hang their coat over the laundry bag on the side of the locker. If there are no hooks on the locker, then the coat may be hung from the far end of the bed! No other items may be hung from the bed.
*
Personal fans (when not in use) may be placed under the bed (out of clear view). At no time will fans be strung from various parts of the bed, locker, or wall. When in use, fans must be placed on the locker, desk, or floor.

Art work such as pictures too large to placed in the lockers, may be maintained in such a way as to not be noticeable in clear view. This will be managed and approved on a case-by-case basis by the unit team and the unit officer.
*
Beds will be made with the white blanket completely covering the sheets. Edges of sheets and blanket will be tucked neatly and tight on all sides. The pillow will be placed neatly at the head of the bed. One (1) extra sheet and one (1) extra white blanket may be displayed on the foot of the bed. They must be folded neatly with the blanket on top of the sheet.
