Clothing for trial appearances and funeral visits are also accepted at this facility. It is recommended that said clothing be dropped off in person for immediate inspection and approval. Clothing may not be blue or black in color or resemble an officer’s uniform in any way.

Property Pick-Up

Property may be picked up Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 10:30am, and 12:30pm and 2:30pm. If an inmate comes back to the facility the same day of his or her release, he or she will be given both the property from his or her cell and the property room. Should an inmate elect not to wait for his or her property to be brought downstairs from a housing unit or the property room, it will be subsequently destroyed after thirty (30) days. Provisions may be made for an inmate to release all of his or her property during non-visiting hours. 

Property Release

An inmate may request to release his or her property to a friend or family member. All requests to release property must be done by signing a completed Property Release Form by the inmate. Requests must be completed one (1) day before actual pick-up.  The family member or friend must show photo identification and sign for receiving property.  When releasing property, the person must take ALL of the inmates property with the exception of court/trial clothing. Upon release or transfer from custody, an inmate has thirty (30) days in which to retrieve his or her property or make arrangements for a family member or friend to do the same, or it will be destroyed.
