What items can an inmate have while in custody?

No items can be dropped off for inmates, except prescription medications, eyeglasses, or other medical equipment which must be approved by the jail nurse. The following items can be kept by inmates:

  • Books, hygiene items, writing material, uniforms and shoes are provided to the inmate while in custody. Inmates may purchase stamps, snacks, soft drinks and other necessities through canteen with their own funds.
  • You can drop off prescription medication in clean appropriately marked prescription containers. The information on the containers will be used to help verify the inmate's doctor, pharmacy, and dosage amounts.
  • Photographs must be appropriate in nature. Please use the United States Postal Service (USPS) to mail all photos and letters. We will not accept any notes, letters, cards, or photos unless they arrive through the post office.
