My husband hasnt been to confinement, but a friends bf has. He was at Okaloosa and they let him take all of his property...including his tablet. Not sure if it is the same everywhere. I can ask hubby tomorrow.

My bf was in confinement at a private GEO facility and there are a very few exceptions to what he wasnt able to have. Dental floss is one that I remember.
