Question Catching chain and personal belongings?

When someone leaves the county headed to prison, what happens to their personal belongings? What can they take with them? What can't they take with them?( Soap dish, shampoo, shoes, books, ect.)

In my hub case he could take nothing with him (except for a dental retainer and its case)
Everything else, he signed over to me and I picked it up at the jail. (wallet, clothing etc)

I'd plan on not taking any of your stuff

Default Catching chain and personal belongings?

My husband was also not allowed any property. He mailed all of it home prior to transferring. This was in California though.

For Dallas County, my hubby had to sign a paper of who could pick his things up. They mailed me the letter and I went up there to get it.. This was only the things he got booked in with tho (clothes, shoes, jacket, etc). Im sure anything they got in commisary for county will not be allowed to go with them but im not sure what happens to the county commisary stuff either..
