Contraband Arrests

The introduction of contraband continues to be a problem in prison systems across the country.  The Tennessee Department of Correction works tirelessly to intercept and recover all forms of contraband in partnership with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.  The Tennessee Department of Correction’s Office of Investigations and Conduct (OIC) is supported by the District Attorney’s Offices and United States Attorney’s Offices to aggressively prosecute these cases. OIC has assisted in the successful prosecution of visitors, volunteers, inmates, co-conspirators, and former employees.

In 2017, Commissioner Tony C. Parker committed to keeping contraband out of Tennessee correctional facilities by unveiling the Honor the Oath program.  Honor the Oath encourages correctional officers to not risk their reputation, their livelihood, their family, or their freedom by violating the oath they swore to uphold.  The program supports the hundreds of valuable employees across the state who assist in identifying those who choose to tarnish the badge by introducing contraband into our facilities.

The introduction of contraband into correctional facilities is a serious violation of state law and is not tolerated by the Tennessee Department of Correction.  Anyone who has information related to the introduction of contraband is encouraged to call our 24-hour tip line at 1-800-TDC-FIND (1-800-832-3463).  Our goal is to identify anyone who provides, assists, or transports contraband that is introduced into our prison.  As we identity these suspects, our agents will prosecute, in state and federal courts, anyone involved in or conspiring to exploit our prisons.  TDOC will uphold its mission to operate safe and secure prisons and provide effective community supervision in order to enhance public safety.
