Antonella,

I've never heard of a Nicholls Correctional Institute in GA. Sorry I can't help. But you can find a database of prisoners at www.dcor.state.ga.us and then click on inmate query.

as Mrskenrdrick2u said, there is not a Nicholls CI in GA.
But if you are looking for a specific inmate, I would do to the link she provide and do an inmate query.

Good luck and let us know if you need help finding anything else. Also, there is a forum specificaly created for finding someone... it is called "Lost in the System"

Patience it was just killing me to wonder why someone would have a full institution name and it not be one. I hope that is what she wants. I haven't seen her on either. Maybe she has the email notification of when someone replies.

Antonella if this is correct we will be more than happy to supply you more information.

I thought I would go ahead and post some info. regarding the Coffee Correctional Facility. There is not much on the GDC site because unlike most State Prisons, this is a private prison contracted by the state. Here's some info.

COFFEE CORRECTIONAL FACILITY

2760 HARMONY RD
PO BOX 650
NICHOLLS, GA 31554

(912)345-5058

PRIVATE PRISONS

The Georgia Department of Corrections has contracted with Cornell Corrections and Corrections Corporation of America to operate three private prisons located throughout the state. D. Ray James Prison located in Folkston, Georgia is operated by Cornell Corrections. Coffee Correctional Institute located in Nicholls, Georgia and Wheeler Correctional Institute located in Alamo, Georgia are operated by Corrections Corporation of America.




The Department has assigned a team of specialists to monitor the daily operation of each of the three private facilities and ensure that the terms of the contracts are being met. Employees at the facilities include security personnel (certified by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council), counselors, program specialists and support staff. Programming for inmate vocational, educational and substance abuse treatment closely follow the standards found in state-operated facilities.

Dont forget: you have to write the sender's full name and address, the inmates full name and GDC number, make sure you write Coffee county correctional facility (there are two jails in coffee county, one is a private prison...address above, and the other is a county jail.

The secretary at Coffee County Correctional gave me the information above.

My fiance's currently n Coffee Co and has a TPM of DEC/2009 .. i.e. NOW, Parole board says he's in the 'Disposition Unit" waiting on them to check his address... can u tell me anything about when urs got out, or how long from his tpm to when he actually got out..we were really hoping he'd be home for Christmas, but it doesn't look like that'll happen :-(
Also, if you know anything about how long the bus takes, as in 'is it better to let him leave 3hrs earlier on bus, or just get him there (which I'd rather).
Thank You,
Anastasia

Hi, l live in Cobb county and l cant drive to Nicholls by myself, so l was asking do you know if there is greyhound bus routes to that side.l have not seen my fiance for 11 months,since he left cobb county ADC. they approved my visitation last month but l cant drive there. The reason l'm asking is because i read your post and you mention that you have a relative there.any help is welcome.

woyh31,
I just checked their website and they don't seem to have a bus service to Nicholls or Douglas which is the next town over. The closest one I found was to Tifton but then you have to find your way to Nicholls and back to Tifton.

It's definitely not low security prison. All in all they run Coffee like a high security facility, it is a closed campus with very little movement.
I PM'd you late last night.

:angry: rawr. My loved one was just sent to Coffee Prison. He went from Jackson. This has been a long process. I want to know if ANY ONE has any information. I can not find a website. Are they "nice?" Is it a rough prison? Do they offer anything for them to do during the day? Do they get to go outside? What is the difference between a private prison or a state. Besides who is paying for it. Is one better then the other? Do they allow inmates to work? What kind of housing is it? Are the guards mean? Is there a website where i can look up inmates in coffee? Have there been any really bad things happen there? I read somewhere they are sending a lot of "lifers" there. Is that true?

If anyone can answer any of these quesions I would appericate it! Im just bummed at the lack of information they offer. :confused:

well my husband hasn't bee in Coffee since January of 2009 so I don't know how relevant my information is but pretty much what is on the previous posts is what was happening when I was there.
You need to submit your significant other form if you aren't blood relatives or married. You can take up to $20 a visit for food and drinks which come from a vending machine. Visitation is split between morning and afternoon so I would call ahead and ask for that info. No white shirts, as the inmates wear white. Also, dress conservitly, no clevage, ever or open toed shoes in the winter. No shorts either.
They run a tight ship at Coffee because their liability is higher since they are private.
Do not take anything to visitation other than your quarters in a clear bag and a few dollar bills, license and keys.
If you are taking a child you are allowed one bottle, diapers and wipes, all must be in a clear bag (ziploc).
If you want to know about Nicholls or Douglas PM me as I have family that lives in the area and I still make the drive periodically to see them so I can give you current info on that.

Were they fair? do they have alot of fights or stabbings? Is there any way i can find that out? Is it safe? as safe as it can be?

kim78
11-11-2010, 12:07 PM
It was safe, to what I know he never got into a fight there, and if seemed that if you flew under the radar you were fine, if you got on their nerves, they got on yours. It was as safe as it gets, at least at that time.

This private prison had 1500 beds until they added on 1500 more beds and don't have enough staff to run the prison, or should I say qualified staff, so since there was 3 deaths there recently, they are now going to start relocating inmates to other prisons.
Was told they had to many write ups and violations in a real short period of time.

My son has just been transferred to Coffee County CI from Jackson. This is suppose to be his final destination. He received a two year sentence, but we have been told that he will probably only have to serve 1/3 of his sentence. He has been incarcerted since October. Can anyone tell me approximately how long you have to wait before you receive information about a possible parole date. Also, should we contact the Board of Pardons and Parole on his behalf. Will it help him if we do this.

My boyfriend was just transferred to this place on Monday night. He was able to call me last night and said that his phone list transferred with him but he had to resubmit his visitation list. I thought once you were approved on the visitation list it followed the inmate too, or at least that is what it says on the GDOC website. Is my situation similar to yours or were you being approved for the first time?

I would give anything to know who you called in Atlanta... I have been dealing with these people for going on 3 weeks and they are rude and do not return phone calls. I am married and sent in my marriage certificate and everything, but no dice. It makes me so mad... his mother and children were approved instantaneously, but since I'm his wife I have to jump through 7894567878 hoops kust to drive 5 hours and see him... bull!

Good luck! Coffee is a private prison and they will do as they dang well please.
My son was there for two years and was finally transferred last April to a county camp. Praise God!
I will tell you when my son was there he never had any problems. A few of the officers were so nice to me when I would visit and would go out of their way to tell me reassuring comments regarding my son. My son had been eligible for a transfer at the 9 month mark and I can not begin to tell you how much of a run around he got! I do not know why they call the counselors, counselors
because they are far from it. In my eyes they were useless, uncaring and incompetent.
After being patient for a year plus of waiting for my son to get transferred closer to home I finally became so tired of the b.s. I intervened and called Atlanta.

Coffee runs the place like a max prison. There is very little to do there since it is a closed campus. The classes they offer are not very challenging, and from what I remember my son telling me there were quite a few times classes would be cancelled because the instructor didn't show up.
I wasn't impressed!
From what I've read on past PTO posts since the expansion of Coffee alot has changed.
Too don't ever expect them to call you back if you leave a message. They will not use their dime to keep you informed.

That is indeed the correct mailing address and along with the information that is listed, it is also helpful to put what building and pod the inmate is in. For instance building 5 pod C would be written as 5-C. I worked enough time in that mailroom to know how they do it and it had gotten to the point if an envelope didn't have it on there, it would be sent back. Just a heads up BEFORE you send mail!;)

Not sure where you got THAT information but it must have been from someone holding a grudge because it is NOT true. No inmate has died there and they are NOT relocating inmates unless it is because they have requested transfers to other facilities for other programs that CCF doesn't provide, like cooking for example. They DO have that choice IF the so choose and WHEN their waiting period is up. Just a heads up, don't listen to all the gossip, it can steer u wrong!

Visitation is on Saturday and Sunday and as far as visiting, have you already been approved? This takes some time if you haven't been. You have to fill out the proper paperwork. I don't remember the hours, but you can call 912-345-5058 to find out plus the inmates counselor can tell you whether or not you are on the approved visitation list. You will have to provide the officer answering the phone with the Building your inmate is in so that he/she can transfer you to the right one. The phone list depends on the last 2 digits of his GDC number. There are 2 times each year that all inmates can redo their lists. Cell phones are NOT allowed! Just a heads up on that one! (Unless that has been recently changed!) Just some FYI to try to help u out. IF you run into a problem, ask to speak to the Classifications Manager.

Ma'am, not only do you have to provide the copy of the marriage license, you have to give them time to do a background check on YOU. They do that on everyone on the visitation list. I know that for a fact, as I am a former employee. Where did your husband get transferred from? If he was in Jackson, that can be a problem. I experienced MANY problems with the paperwork that was SUPPOSED to be done in Jackson but was NOT, and that slows the process down tremendously! Hope that helps in some way!

Hello! My BF is in Coffee CI & I live in Decatur. I recently sent my completed 'Significant Other' form in & am waiting to hear that I have been approved for visitation. I have no vehicle of my own and am therefore interested in carpooling (splitting gas & room expense) with anyone headed that way in the near future. Visitation is Saturday from 2:30 pm to 7:30 pm and again Sunday from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm so I was hoping to head down early Sat morning, get a room & then go to visitation in the afternoon (its a 4-hour ride from Decatur to Nicholls) and then checking out Sunday morning, going to visitation and then head back to town. Let me know if we can help each other out!

Countrysmiles63,

My boyfriend has been at Coffee Correctional since February 2011. He was transferred from another facility. Coffee Correctional is in Nicholls, Ga and is about a 4 hour drive from Atlanta. Inmates are not allowed to have phone cards. You will have to set up an account through Global Tel Link and have your phone number on his approved list. You are not allow a visit unless you are on his approved list. He will have to send you the paperwork to complete and return so they can approve or deny you. May and November are the months for adding and dropping people from their visitation list. As for the facility itself most of the people that work there are nice but they move incredibly slow....visitation is usually from 9 to 2 or 2:30 to 7:30 on Saturday and Sundays...your time is determined by the pod your guy is housed in. The visitation calendar rotates every 3 months. The visitation calendar will rotate next week. I usually visit my boyfriend in the evening so starting in January I will see him on Sunday. The closest town where you have cell phone reception, places to eat, places to shop, places to stay is Douglas. It is about 13 miles from Nicholls. Hopefully this has helped. If you would like additional information please send me a pm...
