The Arizona Department of Corrections has come a long way since the Yuma Territorial Prison that was operational just a mere 100 years ago paving the way for the Arizona Department of Corrections as we know it today.
We provide housing for an average population of 4,100 convicted male felons at our minimum, medium and high custody institutions. It is the responsibility of this complex to furnish security, education, and recreation programs for these inmates. We render high quality security for the public, our employees, and inmates. We are a major employer in the Yuma County area, with 960-full time employees within our workforce. And finally, we are providers of an inmate work program utilized by members of our local state and community organizations.
Our facility, in conjunction with the City of San Luis, City of Yuma, City of Somerton, City of Wellton, County of Yuma and the Arizona Department of Transportation partnership work programs throughout the community to ensure vocational training and community betterment. Our off site work crew services are extended throughout Yuma County. Our onsite work programs consist of our inmate population and provide all facets of support to our institution.
Our complex provides a variety of programs to enhance an inmate’s knowledge and allow them to become a productive member of our society. The programs offered at our facility include but are not limited to education, substance abuse awareness, religion, and work incentive pay program (WIPP).
