Default What Can I Bring in When I Self Surrender to Federal prison camp?

I will soon be self-surrendering to a yet-to-be-designated Federal prison camp. What can I bring in to the FPC when I self-surrender? Am I allowed to bring in any pills or vitamins with me?

You will be able to buy vitamins at the prison and you can see which ones at the BoP web site for your prison.

Bring scripts and enough meds for the day.

Bring in scripts for anything you need - glasses, hearing aids, etc. you can generally bring them depending. On crutches? Bring a script, and bring the doctor's orders unless it's obvious why you need them.

Leave your valuables at home. This includes your wedding ring.

Check your pockets - most of the stuff you don't need. And you don't want to take the vast amount of stuff from your wallet. Take a valid form of ID and your SS paperwork.

Eat a good meal before walking into the facility.

I have never had to SS, so look for guidance from those who've been there, like fbo, and those who've had loved ones self surrender

I made the mistake of taking my prescription medications with me when I entered "the custody of the Attorney General". They were confiscated, and the CO refused to send them home with my clothes. I was told that RX meds can't be sent through the mail, even though I received them that way from the VA. Get used to being lied to.

Check the bop's RX formulary to see the medications that are approved for your medical conditions, those will be what you will receive from "medical" unless the person who prescribes them decides to remove them completely.

I thought that (plain) wedding rings were specifically allowed as a matter of written policy.

Plain rings are allowed. Derek Mack doesn't wear a wedding ring, so that one is a non-issue.
