Default Tecumseh State Correctional Institution-Tecumseh, Nebraska

Tecumseh State Correctional Institution



P.O. Box 900

2725 North Highway 50
Tecumseh, NE 68450
Phone:

The Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI) was established by LB 150 in 1997. In the spring of 1998 a site two miles north of Tecumseh, Nebraska on Highway 50 was selected for the institution and ground was broken in December of the same year. Hiring of initial staff commenced in late spring 2000. TSCI began accepting inmates in December 2001.

All inmates at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution are males adjudicated as adults and classified as medium or maximum custody. (Approximately 30 Minimum Custody inmates are housed at TSCI for outside grounds, administration building and warehouse jobs.) The institution has a design capacity for 960 inmates, which includes 768 non-special management beds, 32 min. B, 32 SAU, 64 PC beds, and a 192-bed special management unit for Administrative Segregation, Disciplinary Segregation and Intensive Management inmates. Death Row inmates will be housed at TSCI but the death penalty will continue to be administered at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln, Nebraska.

TSCI uses a Unit Management concept designed to improve control and staff/inmate relationships by dividing the larger institution population into smaller, more manageable groups and to improve and personalize the delivery of rehabilitative services.

Programs:

Mental Health Counseling (GOLF), ABE/GED, College Correspondence Courses, Substance Abuse Counseling, Residential and Non-Residential, Alcoholics Anonymous, self betterment clubs, volunteer activities, pre-release programs, English as a Second Language (ESL), work programs to include traditional facility work programs, and Cornhusker State Industries.

Inmates at the facility are afforded educational opportunities provided by Metropolitan Community College. Additionally, the facility attempts to meet the emotional and spiritual needs of the inmates through the programs and services of the religious activities. Treatment programming is always at capacity due to the sizable number of drug and sex offenders at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution. The facility is always looking for committed citizens that have an interest in helping our inmates as volunteers. Volunteers are a vital part of our restorative programming. Through programming, the facility has been able to reduce inmate idleness.
