Inmate Money

Every state prison has a Commissary that was started to provide prisoners a bank account for inmate monies and for buying items not issued regularly by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Family, friends, or other sources may deposit funds to prisoner’s accounts with the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends can choose to send inmates money in the mail and will have to send the moneyh to the following address and follow the steps written below:

The funds have to be a money order made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. You are advised to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be placed on a 15-day hold period, in which the inmate will not get the money.

    Improper heating and cooling is a problem. You freeze constantly in the winter because there is constantly cold air blowing in through the vents and in the summer it is extremely hot due to improper air. You sweat non stop for hours and days because of it. It is cruel and unusual punishment. Most of the guards were very nice but there are a few who were cruel, screaming at you, and purposely trying to get you into trouble. The food is disgusting, beans with things in them that looked like maggots.Soy in everything you eat causes stomach problems. A lot of food gets wasted. Cartons of milk and juice get thrown out daily at the housing units because they were extra. At the max building you get only 4 hours of dayspace per week and locked in your cell for the rest the time except for going to meals, rec, libraby, showers, etc. Trying to go to the libray in the max building is at most times impossible because of the limited amount of people allowed to go. Many people do not get to go and if you don’t have a tv you sit in your cell with nothing to do which is very depressing and also should be looked at as cruel and unusual punishment.. There have been many times when it would be as long as a two week period with nothing to read, and no tv. The women in the max security building deserve to have dayspace for 1 hour per day everyday of the week. Being locked in that tiny cell can cause aggression and psychologically is not healthy. Many inmates are over medicated also. To say something positive about Taycheedah; your allowed hobbies which is helpful with getting through your sentence, the medical department is good, the equipment to exercise is very nice, the library has a nice selection of books, if you’re lucky enough to have a tv they play movies every weekend, and the chance to get an education is good. I think as a whole more needs to be done to prevent any more mental health issues because the majority of inmates have come from broken homes which is probably why they are serving time. I also think it should be easier for the elderly women to be placed at the Harris building. I believe the elderly women are intimidated and fear the younger women and they should be allowed to go to Harris Hall without delay.

      Prison is never going to get better as long as we continue to treat prisoners and the rules in a barbaric way. The world has changed, so has crime, and sentences and people. I don’t understand the phone call policy, why is it so difficult to talk to my sister without paying an arm and a leg. How do we facilitate keeping family members involved when we can’t even afford to talk to them? Everyone is afraid of change! WE NEED change! Yes bad people are in prison, I agree, but some people made bad choices, denied themselves the help they needed, and put themselves there. BUT not everyone is a serial killer, or sells lbs of heroin to kids at school. I have some compassion for the inmates, I am human. I get tired of the rules and regulations because no one ever seems to want to change them and make them more advantageous to the visitor. I stopped coming because the people who admitted s into the visitor area at the front gate like to treat us like poop!

    To whom It May Concern: My uncle Arthur Starks #67554066 is a 79 year old inmate at your facility. He was diagnosed and treated with/for prostrate cancer prior to his incarceration at Temple University Hospital. Prior to his incarceration he had surgery on his shoulder which required physical therapy treatment. His cancer treatment required an injection on December 19, 2012, which was to be administered by Temple Hospital staff but he was incarcerated on that date. I have been informed by him that to date he has not received this very important injection. I am writing to you and pleading on his behalf for arrangements to be made for him to get this very important shot. My understanding is that his second injection will be due in March, 2013. I am very concerned that if he continues to go untreated that his cancer may advance to another stage. Can you please help me and my uncle. Thank you very much for your time and attention to this matter of great importance.

  3. Walter says:

    Done believe anything about a early release program that is available at TIC. It does not exist as my wife is an example of it. She meet all the criteria for the program but was denied by the last person Jon A Lipschar secretary of TCI. Funny how all 8 or 9 others all passed her forward except Jon. I guess it’s like the donkey following the carrot the donkey will never get the carrot. Extremely disappointed and pissed with the whole process. So tell your inmates don’t eat the carrots.
