2013 Holiday Package Program


It's that time of year again, folks. That's right -holiday packages! There are few things we have that we look forward to in prison. Visits, mail, commissary...and holiday packages. If you're wanting to do something for your friend or loved one in the Mississippi DOC, read on and we'll try to guide you in the right direction.

There are 3 ways to place an order.
1) ONLINE at: www.mississippipackages.com
(Ordering begins October 21, 2013 and ends December 2, 2013.)

2) MAIL by sending to:
Access Securepak (MS)
10880 Lin Page Place
St. Louis, MO 63132
(Orders sent via mail must be postmarked no later than November 25, 2013.)

3) PHONE by calling: 1-800-546-6283
(Ordering ends December 2, 2013)

There is a $100.00 maximum limit per prisoner. Multiple orders for the same prisoner will be combined into one package, not to exceed the $100 limit.  Access Securepak is applying a 7% sales tax to all products for the State, as required. Orders will be accepted when accompanied by institutional check, cashier's check, money order, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). They also accept debit cards, prepaid credit cards, or cash advance cards. When paying by card, be sure to include the card number, expiration date, card member's name, phone number, and address. My advice on this matter is that you check and see if your friend or loved one is in Access Securepak's system. If they don't show up, then don't use a credit or debit card. Instead, use a cashier's check or money order to pay for the package. There have been some problems with the system, and when you aren't able to order a package for your friend or loved one via credit/debit card, you can still order one with a money order or cashier's check -NOT a personal check. There is also a $3.95 processing fee for all orders.

If you have any questions or want to track the status of your order 24 hours a day, call 1-800-546-6283.
Customer service hours are 7:30 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. CST, Monday - Friday and 10:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M. CST, Saturday.  If you have any questions or concerns, you can also call Trish Jolly at the Pearl, MS office at 1-877-420-1576 or 601-420-4100.
