Plymouth County Correctional Facility is not just a house of corrections for our inmates. Here at PCCF we take pride in our efforts to turn the lives of our inmates around by the time they leave us. We do this with a variety of programs that are available to our inmates. Below is a brief description of each of our inmate programs.

EDUCATION

Top-notch inmate education programs at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility have earned the Sheriff’s Department another prestigious accreditation from the Correctional Education Association (CEA).

The CEA is a national and international professional association dedicated to bringing educational and rehabilitative programming to detained adults and juveniles.

“Plymouth is the first institution to be accredited by the Correctional Education Association (CEA) in Massachusetts,” Erica Houser, Assistant Director of CEA, wrote.

PCCF educational programs range from teaching basic reading and math skills to more advanced classes and innovative ways of learning. Below are several of our basic course titles followed by details on PCCF’s more advanced courses and the G.E.D. program. Below is a list of the available courses and topics covered:

  • Reading & Literature Circles
  • Basic Math
  • Introduction to Computers
  • Public Speaking
  • Life Skills

GED Program: Inmates are able to earn their G.E.D. at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility. The General Educational Development preparation courses are held in the afternoon and get inmates ready for the GED exam. When they are ready, they can physically take the GED exam within the facility and receive their certificate upon passing.

REINTEGRATION

The Reintegration Department at Plymouth County Correctional Facility consists of three Reintegration Advocates and one Reintegration Manager to serve all sentenced inmates. Inmates are assigned to their advocate by last name so that they remain with the same advocate each time they are in the facility, regardless of where they are housed within the institution.

Each inmate sentenced to our facility is seen by their advocate the day after commitment. The inmate is notified of the variety of available resources both inside and outside of the facility. An individual discharge planning form is completed enabling the reintegration staff at Plymouth County Correctional Facility to conduct a needs assessment in several areas:

  • Clothing Needs
  • DOR/Child Support
  • Education
  • Food Needs
  • Housing
  • Job Training and Placement
  • Medical Treatment
  • Mental Health Treatment
  • Religious Contacts
  • RMV
  • Social Security/SSDI/Mass Rehab
  • Substance Abuse Treatment
  • Transportation

Should an inmate request assistance in any of these areas, the advocate will research options and make appropriate referrals. The goal is to stimulate discussion should the inmate not have a healthy plan in place. After the first meeting, it is the inmates’ responsibility to contact their reintegration advocate should they require assistance.

RELIGION

Reverend Daniel Croce is the PCCF Chaplain. In the 1980s, Rev. Croce was an inmate serving a sentence for killing a local police officer in a drunken driving crash.

Today, he is in charge of assuring all inmates access to religious study and worship. Rev. Croce was featured in an Easter rebirth series by the Patriot Ledger newspaper in 2007. Click HERE to see the article.

His deepest satisfaction comes from seeing a couple of hundred inmates embrace the faith every year, just as he did. He says they seem more willing to open up to him because "they know I’ve done time. I’ve been there."

Church services and/or religious studies are available for inmates of all faiths.

There are weekly studies in the following religions:

  • Jewish Studies (English)
  • Prison Fellowship Studies (English)
  • Catholic Bible Studies (English & Spanish)
  • Protestant Bible Studies (English & Spanish)
  • Muslim Studies (English)
  • Jehovah Witness Studies (English & Portuguese)

SHERIFF'S ANTI-VIOLENCE EFFORT (S.A.V.E.) UNIT

The Anti-Violence Unit is open to sentenced inmates. There are both voluntary and mandated participants in the unit. In this immersion program participants reflect upon their violent tendencies through classes and lectures. Below is a description of the unit work the inmates complete.

VICTIM IMPACT PANELS: Victims of violent crime share their stories to SAVE Unit inmates in a non-confrontational manner. The victims detail the impact of crime on their lives, their families, and communities. The goal is for the inmates to understand the repercussion of their crimes, provide a positive outlet for victims, and continue building partnerships with justice agencies and victims service providers to end violent crime. Inmate evaluations show the panel contributes to attitude and perception change.

BATTERER’S INTERVENTION: The 12-week program is an intervention model, not a treatment model. The goal is to end domestic violence and ensure collaboration with other criminal justice agencies and victim advocates. The class provides concrete practical information to change abusive behavior and develop non-violent ways of relating to women. It encourages accountability, helps the inmates understand that their acts of violence control their partner’s actions, thoughts, and feelings.

ANGER MANAGEMENT: This course provides instruction on strategies and techniques to manage anger, reduce conflict, and provide solutions for an inmate to better manage a daily schedule and routine.

CRIMINALITY CLASS: A cognitive- behavior class examines core beliefs: immediate versus delayed gratification, intellectual versus emotional decision making, and criminal and addictive tactics.

HOUSES OF HEALING: A course is based on a book written by prisoners for prisoners. The work helps inmates confront issues and learn to cope while complimenting their other courses inside the SAVE Unit. Details on the book are available by clicking HERE.

PROS & CONS: This course examines themes of violence through classic literature. Inmates within the SAVE Unit soon realize the societal problems of Shakespeare’s day are in line with their own: violence, betrayal, and jealousy.

SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER UNIT

Approximately 75% of sentenced inmates incarcerated at Plymouth County Correctional Facility have been identified via classification as having a problem with substance misuse or chemical dependency.

The Substance Use Disorder Program at the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department is a four month, 62 bed program for sentenced male inmates who have a history of alcohol and/ or drug abuse. It is a 4 phased program based on cognitive- behavioral curriculum. The program is funded in part by the Department of Public Health Bureau of Substance Abuse Services (BSAS); therefor, the program is required to meet the clinical standards set by BSAS in order to ensure the provision of efficacious treatment services.

Inmates are referred through classification or submit a written request to the Substance Abuse program manager. In order to participate, inmates must have a minimum of 160 days left on their sentence, complete an assessment, and meet with the program manager prior to being brought into the Substance Use Disorder Program.

Mandatory morning meetings are held Monday through Friday; required and voluntary groups are held throughout the day. Mandatory classes focus on denial, the disease concept of addiction, relapse prevention, interpersonal and family relationships, emotional awareness, dual diagnosis education, process, criminality, spirituality, and coping skills. Voluntary groups are offered to participants wishing to go beyond the mandatory requirements of the program; these groups focus on step work, the Big Book, Mastering Resentments, fatherhood/ parenting, reading and reflections, and Houses of Healing. Four times a week a mandatory twelve step AA or NA meeting is held for all program participants; each participant is assigned to chair a meeting a minimum of two times during their participation in the program. Monthly mandatory presentations are offered on Infectious Diseases, Opiate Overdose Prevention, Compulsive Gambling, Re-Entry Services, and Tobacco Education. Community agencies are brought into the unit monthly to make guest presentations.

Program staff stresses discipline, structure, and responsibility each day, and expect that each participant will contribute both verbally and through written homework assignments. Participants are held accountable through a written contract signed upon entrance into the program and through a series of techniques designed to identify and rectify unhealthy choices and behaviors.

Staff conducts a formal intake and discharge with each participant, and halfway through the program each participant completes a 60- Day Review which is reviewed by staff and used to assess participant’s level of commitment, motivation, participation, and desire to make change. Prior to completing the program, each participant is required to complete a detailed 8 page Individual Discharge Plan with the program manager. Individualized substance abuse or dual diagnosis counseling is offered to a limited number of inmates who qualify for participation.

VOCATIONAL TRAINING

Work created in The Plymouth County Correctional Facility’s Print Shop has a dual purpose. It’s an inmate vocational training program but also provides services for governmental and non-profit agencies at low cost. Whether it’s printed material for a town’s recreation department, silk-screened t-shirts for a charity road race, or official embroidered department jackets the inmates working the print shop produce high quality work under the direction of trained Corrections Officers.

OFFSET PRINTING: Inmate students learn the concepts and theories of offset printing as well as the history of printing, paper and bindery. The class meets 3 times per week for 13 weeks with one night in the classroom and the others doing hands on work.

CONTINUING OFFSET PRINTING TRAINING: This course exposes inmates to a real-life print shop atmosphere. Multiple projects are going at once with deadlines to meet.

EMBROIDERY: The high-tech computerized embroidery machine comes to PCCF through a Byrne Grant. The grant provides 4-years of funding for the embroidery program and after that, the equipment begins to pay for itself.

SILKSCREENING: Also part of a Byrne Grant, the silk-screening and embroidery courses are taught in the evening. Instructors are brought in to help inmate participants gain employment in the industry upon release.

The department is actively pursuing grants to secure funding for additional vocational programs to give inmates practical skills to use to their advantage upon release.

If you need information about a detainee that is housed at this facility, you may call 508-830-6200 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. When you call, please have the individual’s biographical information ready, including first, last and hyphenated names, any aliases he or she may use, date of birth and country of birth.

Detainees cannot receive incoming calls. If you need to get in touch with a detainee to leave an urgent message, you must call 508-830-6200 and leave the detainee’s full name, alien registration number and your name and telephone number where you can be reached. The detainee will be given your message.

Facility Type

Plymouth County MA Correctional Facility (ICE) is run by the county sheriff’s department and the prison is run by the state department of corrections. Jail is for inmates who are awaiting time or who have been sentenced to less than a year. Prison is only available for people who have been sentenced to more than a year on any one charge.

Neither prison nor jail is nice but they differ in their levels of security, the programs they have and the quality of the environment. Additionally, an inmate cannot ask for a motion to reconsider once they have been transferred to the custody of the department of corrections.

The Sheriff’s department calculates what percentage of your jail time that you actually have to serve. The law requires that the sheriff’s department make people serve a minimum of 50% of their sentence if they are convicted of a misdemeanor.

The jail will accept inmates from the US Marshal and ICE where space is necessary. In comparison, state prison is for inmates serving lengthier sentences on crimes that are more severe in nature.

The Plymouth Sheriff’s Department calculates what percentage of a felony jail sentence a person will serve. The law requires that an inmate serve at least 85% of their felony jail sentence for non-mandatory time and 100% of their mandatory time.

Plymouth County MA Correctional Facility (ICE) also offers and manages alternatives to jail such as work release programs, work furlough, house arrest, and private county jails where the person convicted can serve their sentences on weekends. Because overcrowding is a problem in both county jail and state prison, both systems operate a good behavior program. Those who are on good behavior can have their sentences reduced or cut.

If you are not serving a mandatory minimum sentence and you do not get into trouble while in jail the sheriff’s department will typically give automatic good behavior time. When you first receive your release date from the jail, within a few days of being incarcerated, the good time deduction will have already been included in most cases. For non-mandatory misdemeanor good time off is 50% and for felonies is typically about 10-15%.

Custody/Security Level

The Plymouth County MA Correctional Facility (ICE) is located in Massachusetts and takes in new arrests and detainees are who are delivered daily - call 508-830-6200 for the current roster. Law enforcement and police book offenders from Plymouth County and nearby cities and towns. Some offenders may stay less than one day or only for a few days until they are released in a court proceeding, some after putting up a bond and then are released to a pretrial services caseload under supervision by the court, or are released on their own recognizance with an agreement to appear in court.

The jail is divided into "pods," each of which includes individual cells, common areas, and an outside recreation court — a space bound by towering concrete walls. All meals, are approved by a dietitian. Common area tables are made of solid steel with attached four seats. Inmates crowd around the tables playing cards or board games like chess and checkers. Inside the cells, there is only a sliver of a window allows inmates to peer out. There are two to three inmates per cell, The jail is crowded at about 90 percent capacity and this population varies day-to-day sometimes over-crowded. There are a number of people who arrive at the jail actively or recently drunk or high, or arrive with injuries from fights/assaults that led to their arrest, and/or are mentally ill with no other place for law enforcement to deliver them. This makes the intake process challenging for the jail’s staff and its medical personnel.

How To Save Money on Inmate Calls

The prison phone companies have a monopoly at the facility they have a contract with. Profits are shared so there is no incentive for their representatives to show you how to save money. They post their rates and in almost every case, there are at least two pricing tiers. Depending on where you are and where your inmate is, the type of phone number you use will make all the difference.

In federal prison, the answer is simply that a new local number will change your inmate's call rate from $.21 per minute to only $.06 per minute. Fed gives you only 300 minutes per month, the local line service is only $8.95, no hidden fees or bundling of other unwanted service charges

For the other facilities that are not federal, it used to be that a local number was the answer. Now, its market intelligence and InmateAid has made it their business to know what the best deal is in every scenario. And we can tell you that in 30% of the cases, we cannot save you a penny - and neither can anyone else. But we will give you a refund if we can't save you money.

For more specific information on inmate calls, you will want to navigate to the facility your inmate is incarcerated in through our site by going to Prison Directory and following the links to the Discount Telephone Service - get an honest estimate before you buy.

How To send money

How to Send an Inmate Money in Massachusetts

Here are some general guidelines for sending money to an inmate's trust account; but not specific to a particular facility, institution or jail. Inmates need money to access several privileges like weekly shopping at the commissary, making phone calls, using the email service where offered, using the electronic tablets where offered and paying their co-pay when needing the medical or dental services. Some county jails require a per-night fee for the jail’s expenses.

What is a Commissary?

A commissary is a store within the jail. Commissary day is usually held once a week and can only be used if the inmate has funds in their commissary account, like a bank account within the institution. If the inmate has a job, their paycheck is deposited into this account, too.

The Commissary sells various products that the inmates may purchase if they have money on their books. Items sold are clothing, shoes, snacks and food, as well as hygienic products like soap, shampoo, and shavers. The commissary also sells products like books, magazines, televisions, radios, playing cards, headphones, MP3 players, electronic tablets, songs and educational programming. They also sell paper, envelopes, and stamps allowing the inmate to write their loved ones, friends and family. Facilities will provide stamps and paper to inmates who are indigent – eligible where no money has been in their commissary account for at least 30 days.

How you send money to an inmate?

Sending money to an inmate varies from state to state, depending if it is county, state or federal, their ways of accepting money for inmates’ changes by the money transfer company they’ve contracted with. Federal Prisons and some state-level prisons have centralized banking systems which means that you do not need to know where they are specifically, just that they are in the state systems of for instance the California, Texas, Florida DOC or the FBOP to name a few.

How do I send money using MoneyGram?

Some facilities will allow you to deposit cash through the lobby window stand-alone kiosk in the lobby or visitation room. Most facilities will also accept a postal money order mailed to the institution’s inmate mailing address made payable to the full inmate’s name.

Electronic banking allows friends and family members to send the funds online, and correctional departments are starting to favor this method because it is less work for staff and more accurate/easier to keep track of, as well as being more convenient.

Regardless of the method of sending funds, there are several key things you will need to know:
• Inmate’s full committed name
• Inmate’s ID number
• Inmate’s location – or a system like the federal BOP

Before sending any funds you should find out what online transfer companies the institution your inmate is incarcerated in uses. You can find this information on our site by navigating to the facilities page click on the Money Transfer button under the address and phone number.

Pay close attention to the rules of the facility. Sometimes they will require money senders are on the inmate's visitation list. Some correctional facilities have a deposit limit, like $200-300 at a time, but in federal, there is no limit.

MoneyGram, JPay, OffenderConnect, AccessCorrections, JailATM, WU, Touchpayonline, tigercommissary, smartdeposit are some of the money transfer firms being used by various facilities. MoneyGram is by far the oldest and most trusted.

Who else can access the money you send?

An inmate with fines or restitution will be subject to commissary/trust account garnishment. If the inmate has these financial obligations, they will be extracted from the inmate’s bank account. It may be a percentage or the entire amount depending on the situation. We recommend inmates who are going into their bid contact the counselor and make an arrangement beforehand. If you go in knowing they are taking 20-25% of all deposits is better than have them take it all and you find out in the commissary line when the account is zero.

Why is my inmate asking for more than I normally send?

This is generally a signal that the inmate is doing something they shouldn’t and need money to get them out of or through a situation. It could be gambling, it could be extortion it could be other things you don’t need to know on this forum (for now). Set boundaries with your inmate. Tell them that “this is the amount I can send each month” and that is it. There are no extras beyond the boundary. Also, NEVER send money to the account of another inmate on your inmate’s instruction. This is a sign that something is not right. If the corrections people discover this, and they do more times than not, it will result in some severe disciplinary action to the inmate, and certainly the loss of all privileges.

Who can I call if I suspect something?

We recommend speaking with the counselor or case manager of the facility and use a generic reference in the event that your suspicions are wrong. You needn’t put them in a more difficult position if they are.
