Arrow Tallahatchie County Correctional Faculity (TCCF) in Mississippi

Hey folks!

I am Jonathan the moderator for the Mississippi Forum here on PTO.

We know that many of your loved ones in California have been moved here to Mississippi, and most of them placed in TCCF or better known as Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility.

This prison is located in Tutwiler, MS

It opened in March of 2000 and is operated by Correctional Corporation of America.

It is located on 149 Acres and enclosed on 27 Acres.

The authorized Capacity is 1000+

TCCF Houses Class C Security Offenders

TCCF Is ACA Accredited as of September 2005

Programs that are offered:

Recreation
Adult Basic Education (GED)
Faith Base
Alcohol and Drugs


The contact information for TCCF is:

259 U.S. Highway 49 South
Tutwiler, MS 38963
662-345-6567

Monday and Tuesday from 8am to 12pm and then from 1pm until 5pm.

You must be on approved visitation list. If you are not on an approved visitation list you must call the California DOC and find out the procedure for getting added to the visitation list for that inmate.

The closest airport is Memphis, TN and you can fly into their and get a rental car and drive to Tutwiler. That is about a 1 1/2 hour drive from Memphis.


To send mail use the following;

Inmates Name - Inmates CADOC #
TCCF
415 U. S. Highway 49 NORTH
Tutwiler, MS 38963

I hope that this helps all of you, if you need further assistance with travels to Mississippi or other information on that prison, please feel free to visit us in the Mississippi Forum.

Jonathan

See here for our new subforum for TCCF in the Missouri forums.

I think this should be a sticky!

My prayers go out to the families of loved ones being shipped so far from home!

There has to be away that you can unite for some kind of charter trip you guys can do for visiting/travel... I think there should be a sub-forum for you guys here in the Cali forums since your loved ones are still CDCR inmates.

Arrow Sending Money Orders to Out of State - Tallahatchie, MS - What Needs to be On It?

I am not sure if the same applies to regular California money orders sent to their accounts, or if out of state people need special things written on the money order.

My man writes me so many letters, I cannot find where he wrote where and how to send a money order to the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility (TCCF).

Anyone know the code for this center, or how to do this? I'm sorry if this has already been posted... trying to run a search on "money orders" leads me to no where with the answer I am looking for in regards to out of state transfers, particularly in Mississippi....

Thanks!

Now I have to worry about hurricane season now.... I am so sad :-( He says it is totally backwoods there.

Hi:
My baby is in the MDOC (Mississippi). Below are two links. The first is to the home page for the MDOC. From there, there is a link to MDOC inmate information regarding sending money to inmate accounts. The second like is direct to that page.

http://www.mdoc.state.ms.us/

http://www.mdoc.state.ms.us/Sending%20Money.htm

As you will see, as of February of this year, they are no longer accepting money orders from anyone. You can use Western Union Quick Collect or CyberSuite. I have been using CyberSuite for almost a year. It's cheap and have never had one problem with them. If I send money tonight, it's on his books tomorrow.

I'm not sure if Tallahatchie County is on the same money system as the MDOC in general but I would suggest either calling the facility or going to the Mississippi Forum here on PTO and seeing if there's information listed there. I believe they have their own sub-forum. Easiest would probably be to contact the facility. The link to that from the MDOC is below:

http://www.mdoc.state.ms.us/Five%20P...%20Prisons.htm


Hope this helps!

Here is the number to the facility. You can call and ask for the inmate trust account ( accounting dept) 662-345-6567

found this other info for you too... ( for Western Union)

Pay to=Correction corp of America
Code city=Trust CCA
State= TN
and to make sure you list your loved one's commissary number followed by this last name.

This is the link I found it at. They also have an explination and address about the money orders too. Hope this helped.

Hey, my man has been sending me letters and getting them (I assume?) and has his address for TCCF as

415 Hwy 49 North
Tutwiler, MS 38963

How is this accurate? Which one is true? I printed up mailing labels for my letters on a sheet using the return address he uses. So, finding out that it said hwy 49 SOUTH on this site, I changed it to SOUTH with white out, but I left it as 415, not 259...

I am so confused!!!!

Thanks... I didn't want to use quick collect online bc it costs a fee of $9.95 to send, so I wanted to send regular mail.

I sent it Pay to TCCF for his name and then his CDC# and filled out my name as the sender and my address as the sender address. That is basically all the info that is required on the money order it appeared, so I just guessed.

Also, he sends me letters with the return address of
415 Hwy 49 N
Tutwiler, MS 38963

and I just checked on this site and saw that there is a DIFFERENT ADDRESS listed for sending correspondence to TCCF. It's still on Hwy 49, but Hwy 49 SOUTH, not NORTH, and it was not 415 either... but the rest was the same.

So I am very confused... I just sent off $70 and now I wonder if he will ever get it. I think he has gotten all the other letters I have sent to that address... I printed out address labels with the address he gave me, so I just slap em on an envelope and a return one for my address (I love computers), an upside-down stamp, and drop it in the box. So far, I think I have used these labels several times and he has answered some questions or referred to some things I mentioned in my letters... but the address thing has me so confused now.

The correct address to write is:
415 U. S. Highway 49 NORTH
Tutwiler, MS 38963

Just make sure you put down his CDC #, Blng and cell # to ensure delivery. I hope this help you and good luck.

So I was right! Why do they list it wrong on here? It should be corrected!

Here is what it says at the first message in this thread:

All money orders need to be sent to a lockbox in Georgia which Wachovia processes and submits the info to TCCF. Based on experience, they are very efficient in getting the MO entered right away, within 5 business days. TCCF does not accept direct MOs. The only info that needs to be on the MO is the inmate's name and CDC#.

The 415 Highway address is correct. The 295 Highway is an old address.

It's funny because HE GOT THE MONEY ORDER. They just let him have it! So what can he do with it? The mail room wouldn't just let him forward it on to Atlanta... so he may have to send it back to me, and now I know how to do it all, so I can resend it properly... but what a pain in the butt... but at least he got it. Although why they didn't just bounce it back to me, I don't know. I don't know why they gave it to him. Unless they expected to send it to the right address himself? Why can't they do that and take the postage out of his account? Would be too easy that way.
