The laundry unit is responsible for institutional laundry, such as sheets and blankets, in addition to the inmate’s personal laundry. The property section receives all clothing and personal property aside from the valuables which are listed by the officer and turned over to the Finance Office which carefully documents and stores these items until the inmate is released. Property exchanges are also carried out within the particular unit.
