Classification Teams (Unit Team)
FCI Memphis & SPC Millington are organized under a centralized unit management system. A unit is a self-contained inmate living area that includes both housing sections and office space for unit staff. Each unit is staffed by a Unit Team directly responsible for those inmates living in that unit. Some unit staff offices are located in the units so staff and inmates can be accessible to each other. Unit staff includes the Unit Manager, Case Manager, Correctional Counselor and Unit Secretary. When available, the Staff Psychologist, Education Advisor, and a Unit Officer will avail themselves to an inmate program review and be considered as unit staff. Inmates are assigned to a specific Unit Team. Generally, the resolution of issues and matters of interest while at the institution are most appropriately initiated with the unit team. Unit Team members are available to assist in many areas, including parole matters, release planning, personal and family problems, counseling and assistance in setting and attaining goals while incarcerated. Ordinarily, a member of the Unit staff will be at the institution weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and during the day on weekends and holidays. Inmates need to contact their respective Unit Team for Open House hours and individual unit operational procedures.
