Good afternoon Alec. IDOC does not have a list of publications that are prohibited in IDOC facilities. Every publication is reviewed on a case by case basis. For example, if an offender has a subscription to a magazine and one month is contains something against policy, we would not allow just that month to come in. If you would like to review IDOC's mail room policy, you can follow this link and you can view it in its entirety.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
