Inmate Property

As individuals are arrested and booked in our jail, their personal belongings are inventoried and stored in the property room. All personal items (keys, ID, wallet, jewelry, etc.) are placed into a sealed, valuable bag. Their clothing is stored separately for them to wear when they are released from jail or transferred to another facility.

An inmate may release all their property and/or a specified amount of money from storage to a designee, except for the set of clothing. Property will not be released as individual items; the entire sealed, valuable bag must be taken - is an "all or nothing" transaction.

The inmate is required to sign a property release form before any item(s) and/or money will be released. Please make sure the inmate has signed the form before you arrive to our jail facility.

To pick up an inmate’s property, you are REQUIRED to show a valid photo ID.
