The Arizona Department of Corrections wants your visitation experience to be safe and is taking steps to ensure contraband is not introduced to the prison.

To allow you to help make the prison and your inmate family member safer, we have established an Information Hotline that you may report inappropriate conduct, contraband observations, extortion attempts or any other concerns about misconduct. You may report this anonymously if desired:

Contraband Hotline Phone Tips: (520) 574-0024 ext. 36666
(After hours, you may leave a message and it will be handled immediately the next business day or if after hours and urgent, please contact the number below)

After Hours Urgent Contraband Hotline: (520) 574-0024 ext. 36095

Please note the following changes to our visitation procedure which will assist with this objective:

  • Visitors may be subject to clear the magneto poles in addition to clearing the walk-through metal detectors. Should a visitor not clear, they will return to their car and shall be prohibited from visiting for 60 days and an additional 180 days of non-contact visitation. For a second offense, there will be a permanent loss of visitation privileges.
  • If a visitor cannot be cleared by the metal detector/magneto poles for some reason (i.e. medical) then the visitor shall only be cleared for non-contact visitation.
  • Visitation seating may be assigned to ensure closer monitoring of a visit by staff.

For questions or clarification please contact Complex Visitation: (520) 574-0024 ext. 36091

Work Programs

As part of an Intergovernmental Agreement ASPC-Tucson has approximately 28 inmate off complex work crews. There are also; two onsite call centers for hometown heroes that employ 78 inmates; Arizona Department of Transportation work crews that conduct off-site trimming and cleaning debris from the medians and sides of roads, two wild land fire crews that also spend off season assisting with brush abatement and a work crew at the Kartchner Caverns State Park located in Benson, Arizona. The offsite work crews cover an area between Tucson, Nogales, Marana, Benson and Sells. There are ten crews that work on site, outside of the secure perimeter to maintain the Complex.

In addition to these inmate crews, each unit is allocated a WIPP (Work Incentive Pay Plan) budget based on the number of inmates assigned to the unit. On average over 1900 inmates are paid to work at jobs ranging from labor crews which clean the yard, rake rocks and mow lawns, to semi-skilled and skilled jobs such as clerical, barber and maintenance jobs. Inmates may also work half a day and attend vocational education classes half a day for which they also receive WIPP wages. The Arizona Correctional Industries Sign Shop at ASPC-Tucson employs up to 26 inmates at an average wage of $.65/hour. These inmates reclassified as skilled to highly technical, depending on the job involved. Most positions require a background in computer, silk screen, painting or metal fabrication.


Education Programs

Presently of a total population of approximately 5000 inmates at the Tucson complex, approximately 30% of ASPC-Tucson inmates are involved in some form of education. Forty percent of arriving inmates have not yet achieved an 8th-grade level of education and are automatically enrolled in the Functional Literacy program. Programs available to the inmates are: High School, GED, and Mandatory Literacy. The programs offered by the CTE program are:  Automotive, Computers, Construction, Electrical, and HVAC. Inmates also have access to distance learning and CCTV programs.
