Do you know if they have to shave their beards? It is fully against our beliefs for him to shave...

Yep you sure can. The address is:

Alhambra Reception
Inmate Name and ADC#
P.O. Box 52109
Phoenix, AZ 85072

And yes, he will have to be clean shaved for his prison ID photo. After reception he is free to grow his beard again up to 1 inch long without a shaving waiver. If he practices a religion that forbids shaving he may be able to get a waiver from the chaplain. It's very helpful to get to know the ADC department orders.

No. It will be at the prison he lands at after he's been through reception at Alhambra (usually takes around 2 weeks unless it's around the holidays when EVERYTHING ADC slows down considerably). I don't know that there's any way he'll get away with not shaving at Alhambra for his intake photo. He could refuse to shave at Alhambra...but I'm not sure how that would turn out for him. He may get a minor ticket for refusing to follow orders or refusing to follow grooming procedures. It's not a great way to start a prison sentence with a bad mark on your file.
