Academic programming is available to assist prisoners in preparing for GED completion. Prisoners who have already attained their GED also have the opportunity to obtain training in food technology. Routine work assignments are available to prisoners and Level I prisoners may work on public work assignments in the surrounding community under supervision of corrections staff.

Prisoners are provided on-site routine medical and dental care. Serious problems are treated at the department's Duane L. Waters Health Care in Jackson and emergencies are referred to a local hospital.


The facility is surrounded by two fences with rolls of razor wire on the side and top of the outside fence. The fence area is also monitored by a series of electronic devices and the perimeter is patrolled by armed staff. Security was further enhanced in 1997 by the addition of two gun towers.
