Adult men who have been sentenced to the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC) may be housed at the Correctional Institution. Prior to approving an offender housing at this facility, GDC will review criminal and behavioral histories, release dates, and ability to participate in rehabilitative programs, and assign each one either a medium or minimum security level. Once approved by GDC, the offenders may be transferred here to begin their journey as returning citizens.

An offender may work with their Counselor at their present location to request a transfer closer to home. If the offender’s request is approved within the facility, the request will be forwarded to GDC’s Offender Administration for review and action.
