Men's Facility Property Items Allowed

The below listed items are the only property items permissible for County, State and Federal Inmates while housed here at the Grayson County Detention Center. All other items will be cited as unauthorized; and therefore will be described as Contraband. We will not be responsible for returning contraband items. Grayson County Detention Center will not be liable for any lost or stolen articles in the inmate’s living area. All property will be accepted through the mail or bonding window for a period of 14 days after confinement at this facility. Beyond the 14 days, these items will have to be purchased from commissary. All packages being mailed in must have a verifiable name and address. Any packages from 3rd party Vendors (Amazon, Walmart.Com, Any 3rd Party Mailing Agency’s, etc.) will be unopened and returned. In the event we are unable to verify the senders name and address we will allow the sender to show proof of identity, and the inmate will receive their package. Otherwise, your package will remain on the inmate’s property until he/she leaves our facility. In the event it is discovered the package has ties to another inmate, it will be counted as contraband and disposed of accordingly. You may drop property off from Monday to Friday at the bonding window between the hours of 8am – 3 pm (CST). No property may be taken at the visitation desk at any time.  All incoming property is approved at the discretion of the Property Officer.
