Clothes and Property
Your clothes and property will be locked up and kept safe while you are in Detention.
They will be given to you when you leave. When you are admitted you will be given
detention shower shoes. Once you move to general population, you will be given detention
tennis shoes. The only things you can keep with you while in Detention are photographs
of family or friends, legal papers, prescription glasses or contacts, false teeth,
stamps and up to five (5) pictures. Staff may limit the amount of papers or other items
you have in your room, especially if they are not kept neat and orderly. Detention
staff will wash and/or disinfect your clothes and shoes after you come to Detention.
If you leave Detention without all your clothes, property or money, we will either
call you or write you a letter. You will then have four (4) weeks to reclaim your property.
If you can’t pick them up, one of the people you named on your Clothes and Property
Sheet can pick your things up for you. If no one comes to claim your property after
four (4) weeks, the Facility Administrator will dispose of them. If you get released and
Detention cannot find some of your clothes, property or money, the Center will keep
a record of what was missing. Your loss will be reported to the Assistant Facility
Administrator and we will try to recover your things and get them back to you. If
your property cannot be located and you want to be paid for the items, you have
to file a Tort Claim. If the Tort Claim is approved by the Board of County Commissioners,
you will be paid for your loss.
