Can I bring an inmate / detainee some religious materials?

The St. Charles County Department of Corrections (SCCDOC) recognizes the importance that religion may hold in any person’s life and encourages, within safety and security limitations, anything that may help an inmate during his/her incarceration. As such, the SCCDOC offers a variety of religious reading materials that can be checked out by the inmates /detainees.

Each inmate / detainee is authorized to have 1 Bible (or equivalent religious book for their religion upon approval of the Director of Corrections for the SCCDOC).

Religious materials cannot be dropped off, but can be mailed in directly from a distributor. (i.e. Amazon, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, etc.) Hard back books are not allowed and must not have any sticky notes or page markers.
