Inmate Personal Property

Personal property including valuables will be collected, inventoried and secured in the facility property room until the detainee is released from custody. Money is inventoried and deposited in an inmate commissary account.

Once personal property is sealed and secured it cannot be reopened for any reason. However, the inmate can complete a Property Release Form to permit a named person to assume possession of it. The named person must present valid photo identification and provide a signature for the purpose of positive verification to possess the property.

A property release should be submitted in advance by an inmate prior to departing the facility to serve a Court Ordered Sentences to the Department of Corrections and/or Treatment Program. If property is not retrieved within 7 days it will be disposed of due to the facilities inability to store excessive amount items due to storage limitations in the property room area.

Property is released Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p. m. with the exception of holidays this transaction takes place at the Detention Centers Front Office located in the main lobby.
