RECREATION, LEISURE, AND SOCIAL PROGRAMS
Hobby craft programs available to the inmate population include activities such as: painting, leather art, and woodworking. Completed projects that are authorized by the Hobby Shop Supervisor must be mailed home to one of your approved visitors, within 30 days of completion. Inmates are not allowed to have completed projects in their cells. (See Personal Property limit’s section for hobby craft project property and disposal procedures). All hobby craft’s raw materials and projects will be stored in a hobby shop locker. All projects kept in the hobby shop locker may be removed if they pose a safety, sanitation, or security hazard. Disposal of completed hobby craft work must be arranged immediately after completion. Disposal will be by mailing the project(s) to any individual approved to visit the inmate. The hobby shop supervisor will approve all such mailings.
When a waiting list exists for inmates wanting to participate in hobby crafts, inmates presently in hobby crafts will be limited to 90 days participation. After 90 days, each innate will be rotated out of hobby craft and placed on the bottom of the waiting list. During such waiting periods, the hobby shop will provide secure storage space for inmate hobby craft materials. Hobby crafts may not be sold to another inmate, staff, or the general public at this institution or by mail. To do so is a violation of Prohibited Act 408, Conducting a Business, and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
Musical instruments are available in the recreation area for inmates at this institution. These instruments will remain in the recreation area. Authorization of musical instruments are allowed in the housing unit, but ear phones must be utilized.
