      Hi Cheryle,

      Our prison page has the link for the USP–Tucson link. Go to their web site for further information regarding visitation and its procedures.

    Do I need to notify the prison ahead of time if I am planning a visit? If so, how much time in advance do I need to notify anyone and how do I notify (phone number and who do I ask for or by mail, email, etc.)? Thank you.

      Hi Edward,

      In order to visit, you need to be on the inmate’s visitation list. You should click the link to the prison’s web site on our prison page for additional information.

    What is the high security section like, dangerous? gangs? work and rec. programs?

    • PrisonPath January 28, 2013 at 10:51 pm #

      Hi Roy,

      Usually high risk security sections are for inmates who have violated the prison rules. Inmates who are assigned to such sections upon arrival have committed violent crimes, dangerous gang members, or are security risks.

      Hi Mary,

      Please note the following information about sending items to inmates.

      For security, safety, and sanitation reasons, the Bureau limits the amount of property (jewelry, photographs, books, magazines, etc.) inmates may have and the types of publications inmates can receive. The institution issues clothing, hygiene items, and bedding, and provides laundry services. Inmates may purchase other personal care items, shoes, some recreational clothing, and some food items through the commissary. Civilian clothing (i.e., clothing not issued to the inmate by the Bureau or purchased by the inmate from the commissary) ordinarily is not authorized for retention by the inmate.

      The only packages an inmate may receive from home are those containing release clothing. Release clothing packages may only be received with prior approval by the inmate’s unit team or authorized staff member within the last 30 days of confinement.

      Inmates may only possess those items they are authorized to retain upon admission to the institution, items issued by authorized staff, items purchased by the inmate from the commissary, or items purchased or received through approved channels (to include that approved for receipt by an authorized staff member or authorized by institution guidelines). All other items are considered contraband and will be seized and disposed of (destroyed, mailed out of the institution at the inmate’s expense, etc.) in accordance with Bureau regulations. Contraband that threatens the security of the institution may result in disciplinary action and/or criminal prosecution for the inmate

    I’m writing a paper and I was wondering if I would be able to write Mr. James whitey bulger?

      Hi Rodney,

      You can write to an inmate. You will need his federal prison number and complete address of prison. For information about prison
      life, read the 25 Rules.

    I have an elderly gentlemen friend that is spending life in your penitentiary. He is a loner yet he sings gospel music and plays guitar as well as anyone I have ever heard. He is rotting in his cell from depression and lack of purpose and I figure if the prison chaplain could hear him play and sing, my friend would have a purpose….perhaps prison ministry. Is it possible for me to send a CD of my friend playing gospel music to the chaplain or warden? Can you have either of them contact me? Or tell me how to contact them?
