Inmate Property

Picking Up Property
Before an inmate can release his personal property, he must get approval through the inmate request system. Once approval has been granted, inmate property can be picked up. In order to pick up property, you must be the person specified by the inmate, and you must have photo identification.

Property can be picked up at the cashier window located in the lobby of the Spokane County Jail. The cashier window is closed from 12 noon to 1:10 p.m. each day and from 5 - 7 p.m. Once you get to the jail to pick up property, you will need to wait for staff to retrieve the property. If you do not have the time to wait, please come back at a time that is more convenient for you.

If you have been released and need to pick up your property. Go to Building 17 (#18 on Campus Map (PDF)).

Geiger Corrections Center
You may pick up property that has been prearranged for pick-up at the A Building.
