All received mail will be opened and inspected for contraband (items not allowed to be received while confined at the Correctional Facility). Mail containing contraband may be returned to the sender or in case of contraband that may be considered a violation of Maryland law, may be turned over to the Montgomery County Police Department for disposition. Examples of contraband include: postage stamps, photographs depicting pornography, cash, clothing, reading material (other than those sent directly from a publisher or bookstore), etc.
