Contraband Arrests

The introduction of contraband, which includes cell phones, into correctional facilities is a serious violation of state law and is not tolerated by the Tennessee Department of Correction.  While this is a national problem, the Department works to intercept and recover any contraband.  In addition, we work with our law enforcement partners to actively prosecute those who violate that law.  Recently there have been a series of blog posts calling into question the Department’s commitment in addressing this national problem.  With regard to the individuals in the blog, the Department is already actively investigating these inmates and working with the social media networks to have the pages removed.

The Department is not only committed to tackling this problem but is dedicating more resources to this issue than ever before.  Earlier this year, the Department joined other DOCs throughout the nation in asking the FCC to reconsider their stance on cell phone jamming technology.  In addition, the Department recently hired a Chief Interdiction Officer to lead our efforts into this issue.  This position is charged with collaborating with the investigative agencies of local, State, and Federal officials to not only stop the flow of contraband but to also yield arrests in the community thus making Tennessee safer.

We encourage anyone with knowledge of any threat to the safety and security of our institutions to call 1-844-TDC-FIND.  This line is manned 24/7 to receive viewer tips; each and every tip we receive is investigated.  The information received is then used by the Department’s Office of Investigation and Compliance (OIC) to investigate the criminal contraband network.  OIC investigations don’t stop at shutting down the illegal social media accounts.  The goal of these investigations is to stem the flow of contraband into our facilities and to shut down these criminal enterprises.

Those that are visiting an offender in prison must understand that these visits are a privilege.  Visitors who abuse this privilege by bringing or attempting to bring contraband inside our prisons will be prosecuted.  Also, employees discovered introducing contraband into state prisons face termination and criminal prosecution for violating the laws they have sworn to uphold.
