With prior approval from the Operations and/or Medical Departments, the only items of property accepted during visiting hours from family or friends are eyeglasses and certain prescription medications. The in-house approval for this is initiated by the Offender. Do not bring any of the aforementioned items unless arrangements are made for you to do so. Clothing for trial may only be brought in by the Offender’s attorney in coordination with the Shift Supervisor.
Offenders may order and receive publications (magazines, paperback books and newspapers) directly from an approved vendor. All books ordered must be new. Used books will not be accepted. Offenders must have funds to pay for any order in advance. Family and friends may order publications for delivery to an Offender directly from an approved vendor or publisher (listed below).
Approved vendors for books include: Barnes & Noble, Booksamillion.com, Edward R. Hamilton Booksellers, Christian Book Distributors, Noble Knights, Powell’s Books and Walmart.com. Magazines may be ordered from any verifiable publisher but will be screened for appropriate content.
The Offender must have prior approval from Operations before ordering so property limits and proposed vendors can be reviewed. There might be excess books and/or magazines that need to be disbursed or donated.
All other property items require prior approval from the Operations Officer.
