What can I bring to a visit with an inmate?

You are usually required to bring nothing in to a visit with you when visiting an inmate in a jail. Some prisons allow a small, see-through wallet to hold money for vending machines, however the amount of money allowed is regulated.

For security purposes the purse size has to be small and unable to hide or contain contraband.
