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).

If you would like to bring a Bible, Koran (Qur’an), etc. to an inmate / detainee, you must do so Monday - Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. For security purposes, those items brought to the facility must be paperback.
