I think it is 8X10 inches for photos. You can see the exact rules on the mail section of the AZDOC website though. Not sure about how many photos can be sent though

My son just got admitted to Eyman, and I cannot figure out how to
1. set up an account so he can make phone calls
2. find the list of things he can receive in the mail
3. find out why he says he needs money
Thanks, Dale

I write frequently to an Eyman SMU11 inmate. The things you can send in are limited, but you can be creative and still make some interesting mail for him that is within the rules. You can send in photos, but no bigger I believe than 8X10 inches. Just normal photos though, No Polaroids. Not sure what the limit is per letter on photos though? My inmate is allowed cassettes, but they must be clear, no screws and sent from a company (not sent direct from you). Your loved one will need a cassette player first, which he can buy from the store, I believe. you can buy music cassettes from Pack central they have a catalog you can get for $2. All the mail rules are on the AZDOC website. Go onto their webpage and on the left hand side of their web page you will see 'inside ADC', directly under it if you scroll down you will see ADC policies. You can't see it until you scroll down though for some reason. Click on it when it appears and then at the top of that page you will find a link marked inmate mail, click on it. All the mail policies are on there.

He will need money for stamps, paper, pens, soaps, toothpaste, bathroom roll and other various wash items and at times clothing items too and for any snack items from the store also. Get him to send you a copy of the store list it will give you an idea of what they can and most often need to buy. If you have a problem getting one I could always email you an old store list. PM me if you want the store list emailed. Eyman inmates can not work and anything they need over the very, very basic they have to pay for themselves. Even such items as an Asprin for a head ache they will need to buy their own. Items such as cassette players, TV's and fans can be bought from the store. Their prices are not cheap though. My inmate went years without some electrical items. I have helped him across time to buy the things he needs. He brought a fan because it gets very hot there. I think if I remember rightly it was about $22 and his TV was about $235. He brought a lamp too. I think he got that because the lights go out early and the lamp means they can still read after lights out. I think so anyhow. the lamp was about $12. If you have any questions you can always PM me and if I know I will answer.

Not sure about the best phone deals and how you go about setting that up. I didn't sort out a phone line yet myself

I will have to check for sure, but I think there is like a set charge monthly they pay for electricity. Someone else may correct me on that though. I just thought I had a vague recollection of that being the case anyhow.

If I remember correctly they do get charged like $2 or $4 per month? But not positive.

Yep I think they are charged for electric. Someone else told me they sell socks in ones too. So they don't buy pairs, but single socks, hmmm not sure what that's all about. Very strange way of pricing something that is obviously needed in a pair. Maybe I am missing something though. Either that or they got a lot of requests for single sock purchase :eek: crazy

How come inmates here cant work?

SMUII AKA Browning Unit is a maximum custody level yard. "Maximum Custody Inmates who represent the highest risk to the public and staff and require housing in a single cell setting. These inmates have limited work opportunities within the secure perimeter and require frequent monitoring. These inmates require escorted movement in full restraints within the institution."
