Southern Desert Correctional Center opened in 1982. The state’s fourth major prison started life as a federal facility. The state took over in 1987. It started with seven 102-bed cells. Another 200-bed unit opened in 1989. In 2008, the state added another two 240-bed dorm-style units. The medium-security facility’s current capacity is 2,149 men.

Emailing Photos to Inmates
You can email pictures to inmates at Southern Desert Correctional Center. However, you also need to know this:
Inmates do not receive the email directly. The prison staff opens all email and reads everything first. Approved messages and pictures are printed and handed out at mail call.
Approved pictures are printed in black and white on plain paper. If you send high-resolution pictures in beautiful colors, the inmate will not see that.
The Nevada Department of Corrections contracts with Corrlinks to provide email services.
Inmate’s Use of Handheld Devices
Inmates at Southern Desert Correctional Center are allowed to have handheld devices, an MP3 player, in this case, that can display pictures. Inmates must purchase the MP3 player from the prison commissary, and the price is not cheap. Pictures stored on the device must also meet the prison’s rules for printed pictures.
The MP3 player also comes with rules. If the inmate violates a Southern Desert Correctional Center rule, he can lose the use of the MP3 player. If the staff takes the device away, it can be erased. All the pictures stored are lost.
Emailed photos have an expiration date on them, so they only last so long.
When you send pictures with Inmate Photos, those pictures are considered personal property. If the person violates in-prison rules, the pictures are stored while the inmate is going through the discipline process. Pictures are returned to the person when he is done with the internal prison process.
