The Barry B. Telford Unit is one of the maximum-security facilities in Texas. It was built to house around 2800 male inmates in eight massive blocks.

Even though many prisoners have been incarcerated for more aggressive crimes, Telford Unit gives them a second chance by providing them with rehabilitative vocational work. Inmates are also encouraged to pursue different courses, like their GEDs, life skills education, parental classes, and more.

Here's what you need to do to guarantee that your mail will be received and possibly get the inmate to write back:

  • Ensure that you understand all the mail rules.
  • Avoid spraying perfume or decorating the envelope with stickers.
  • Write the recipient's name and address at the center of the envelope.
  • Include your name and return address in the top-end corner of the envelope and the letter.

Visitation rules might differ from prison to prison but some standard ones apply across all institutions, the Telford Unit included. For example, you need to be on the inmate's approved visitation list before you can be allowed to visit them.

Here are a few more things you need to do:

  1. Call the prison before your visit to confirm if the inmate is still at the facility and if they're eligible for visits.
  2. Do not carry any contraband. To know what's classified as contraband, you can contact the prisoner or find the details from the TDCJ. Come with valid identification during the visitation.
  3. If you want to give them money, you'll only be allowed up to $20 in quarters and kept in a clear, zip-lock bag.

Barry B. Telford Unit visiting hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Phone Calls

Phone calls are highly restricted at the institution, and prisoners can only make calls to their friends and family.

Sending Packages

If you're not sure what to send a loved one to prison, here are some of the most common things that always get approved:

  • Token money
  • Letters
  • Photos, books, magazines, and publications
  • Anniversary cards

Find out from the inmate if there are any other restrictions on sending items, or let us help you.
