Religious Property

Inmates may request religious literature/materials from their institutional chaplain. Donated ceremonial supplies are used for group ceremonies when appropriate and available.

The ADC permits Inmates to possess religious items used in the practice of the inmate's religion, not posing a threat to the safe, secure and orderly operation of the institution provided all items are capable of being stored in their property box. All items must be purchased from approved sources, with the exception of any item not appropriate for store purchase (e.g., eagle feather).

For information regarding sending items/publications into the institutions refer to Department Order 914. Mail containing religious materials is treated in a manner consistent with other institutional mail.
