Hi, I am new as my son just was sent to SCF. Can someone let me know what the rules are, what they are allowed there, if they are provided everything or if they have to buy their own stuff. Down in the county jail here in Colorado Springs they have to have money for deodorant, shampoo, any extra food, etc... which is stupid. How the heck they expect these men to come up with money unless it is for family and friends to provide. My tax money goes into these places so why is it more burden on family and friends?

The county jails provide a list of acceptable items that the person may take with them from the county jail. Otherwise, you may go to the Colorado DOC website at and there are links that will provide you with information regarding visiting, communications with your loved one, sending money, etc. In addition, you may also contact someone at the facility via email from the website. There is also a link to the rules and regs,(referred to as "AR's) What unit is your son assigned to? How long will he be there? My significant other is also at Sterling, and has been there almost 10 years. I just found this thread or I would have given the info sooner. This may be too late to help you, if so I am sorry. I wish your loved ones the best
