Property Allowed to be Brought to an Inmate

The following items may be brought to someone being housed in our facility:

  • A single day's newspaper
  • Up to three paperback books
  • Up to three paperback religious texts
  • Up to ten photographs
  • Reading glasses
  • Prescription glasses
  • Prescription contacts
  • Soft sided glasses case
  • Contact case
  • Legal Documents from your attorney

Inmates are only allowed to have so many items in his or her cell.  Due to this, some items you may bring may be denied as they may already have the maximum amount allowed.  For example, an inmate is only allowed up to three paperback books in his/her cell.  If you brought one book, one book in the cell must be exchanged or the book you brought may be denied.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at (785) 460-4570 to speak to a Detention Deputy.
