Inmates sentenced to the Corrections Center may be housed in
the Corrections Center or at one of the satellite locations utilized by
the Sheriff's Office. Specific information concerning visitation
procedures, program access, and directions to the facility, etc. may be
acquired from the specific facility.
The first step in the custody process is Booking. The Booking
process includes the gathering of pertinent information that is needed
to allow the Corrections Center staff to better meet the inmate's needs
during confinement. During the Booking process, all personal property is
taken and secured. The inmate is interviewed by various people,
fingerprinted and photographed. He or she receives a medical intake
screening, and a jail issue of clothing, bedding, and toiletry items.
Inmates may have no money in their possession while confined. Any
money an inmate has at the time of confinement can be placed into a
commissary account which can be used to purchase various and sundry
items. Money can be placed into an inmate's account at visitation.
Inmates also have the opportunity to purchases up to $30.00 of
merchandise per week.
