The websites of state-approved independent vendor companies such as Icon, Access Securepack and Golden State Care Packages often provide downloadable catalogs for inmate packages. These vendors have online stores where the loved ones of an inmate can view a catalog and choose from preassembled quarterly and special packages.
Access Securepack, a vendor approved by Washington, D.C., and California, posts the list of products approved for entry at prisons and county jails. The California Department of Corrections allows only one package per quarter for inmates, as of 2015, while the Washington State Department of Corrections allows gift packages on a monthly basis. In California, an inmate can receive any number of special packages per quarter, but can have specific items, such as a television or a CD player, registered under his name only once.
