Personal Property Limits
Only items issued through regular channels, purchased at the commissary, or through special purchase orders, are authorized for retention. The number of items which may be retained by an inmate are limited for sanitation and security reasons. The following list is not all-inclusive, but is a guide to the kind of items an inmate may be authorized. A complete list of the types and numbers of approved personal property can be found in the appropriate Institution Supplement and posted on bulletin boards in the housing units. Inmates may not give any items of value to another inmate, i.e., radio, watch, sneakers and Commissary items.
Storage space consists of an individual locker which can be secured with locks purchased in the institution commissary. Footwear may be neatly placed under the bed. The amount of personal property each inmate is allowed is limited to those items which can be neatly and safely placed in the space designated.
Under no circumstances will any materials be accumulated to the point where they become a fire, sanitation or security hazard.
Clothing Civilian clothing of any type (except athletic apparel) is not authorized. All clothing is to be neatly stored in the individual locker. A limited number of personal sweatshirts, sweat pants and thermal underwear is permitted. Individual washcloth and towels are issued to inmates. Alteration of any item is prohibited and may be grounds for disciplinary action.
