DESCRIPTION

The Federal Correctional Complex at Terre Haute has a long history. It’s not all good. The United States Penitentiary is a high security prison that also has death row for federal prisoners. The medium-security Federal Correctional Institution is the former USP. It now holds male offenders. The adjacent minimum-security federal prison camp holds male offenders. If you’re going to one of these prisons, please send us your review so that others can learn from your observations and experiences.

  • 7. Pros of the facility:This prison is vert laid back. There aren’t much of prison politics, at least they’re minimal compared to other places. The staff are generally friendly and respectful.
  • 8. Cons of the facility:This prison is very old. There is no air-condition in this facility, and pests and insects are a problem.
  • 9.Food assessment of the facility:on occasion, the food can be good. But in general, the quality of food is poor, quantities are minimal to moderate, and they rarely give us the condemns that we are entitled to per the BOP’s ” National Menu.” For example, on hamburgers days we get a bun, a burger and perhaps some mustard, but rarely do we get mustard, mayo and ketchup. Another example, vegetables, such as tomatoes and pickles, which are suppose to be included with sandwiches and burgers, are included once in a while. Also, unlike all other institution that I have been in, there is no hot and cold bar here. Bottom line, you need money on your books to eat here, and eating healthy in here is hard. (Note: I should mention that the quality of food in the entire federal prison system has gone down substantially over the past decade.)
  • 10.Recreational opportunities at the facility:On the rec yard, we have weights, stationary exercise equipment, a miniature golf course, 2 basket ball courts, 6 hand ball courts and 2 walking tracks. In the gym, there is a basketball court, a handball wall, a billiards room and a band room. Also, in the gym is hobby craft – ceramics and painting.
  • 11.Programs available in the facility:This prison has a residential drug and alcohol treatment program (RDAP), a non-res drug program, STAGES, a building trades program, apprenticeship courses accredited through the Department of Labor (Office Management, House Keeping, Baking, Cooking and Mechanics), Anger Management, Bible College (available through the chapel) Parenting, and numerous ACE courses. And of course, there is a GED class and basic computer key boarding
  • 12.Best jobs in the facility:This institution has a UNICOR and it’s fairly easy to get in to. The best jobs are usually the same in all prisons: Commissary, Officer’s dining room, butcher shop, hallway orderly, barber shop
  • 13.Living Quarters in the facility:There are 8 general population units (C, E, F, G on the west side, and K, L, M, J on the east sire. G Block has dorm-like living and is for inmates 40 an older who have at least two years clear conduct. C Block has communal restrooms (no water in the cells) and is also for inmates who have at least two years clear conduct. Both of these blocks are unofficial’ “honor units.”
