The Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI) is a 978-bed maximum/medium custody facility for adult males that was established by LB 150 in 1997. In the spring of 1998 a site two miles north of Tecumseh 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. The death penalty is administered at the Nebraska State Penitentiary but all Death Row inmates are housed at TSCI.
Programs available include ABE/GED classes, college correspondence courses, Transformation Project for inmates in segregation, Alcoholics Anonymous, self-betterment clubs, volunteer activities, release programs, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, and Vocational Education Programming. Work programs include traditional facility work programs, Health Porters, and Cornhusker State Industries (CSI) operations (Laundry and Woodshop)
TSCI has a ten-bed infirmary, clinic exam rooms, on-site x-ray, medical laboratory, optometry, and dental. Behavioral health services include psychiatric services, crisis intervention, and residential and non-residential substance abuse treatment.
The facility attends to the emotional and spiritual needs of the inmates through the religious programs and services. Volunteers are a vital part of our restorative programming. The facility welcomes citizens that have an interest in working with inmates as volunteers. Through programming, the facility is also able to reduce inmate idleness.
