NC Division of Prisons sets closing dates at four prisons
By North Carolina Department of Correction
Published: 08/09/2011

RALEIGH – The Division of Prisons has set closing dates for four minimum-security prisons that the legislature directed to be closed in the state budget approved in June. The prisons and their closing dates are as follows:
  • Durham Correctional Center – 216 beds – October 1, 2011
  • Haywood Correctional Center – 128 beds – November 1, 2011
  • Cabarrus Correctional Center – 198 beds – December 1, 2011
  • Charlotte Correctional Center – 256 beds – December 1, 2011

Inmates currently housed at these prisons will transfer to other facilities within the Division of Prisons before the closing dates. The Department of Correction will work to place eligible employees in vacant positions elsewhere within the agency or separate them in accordance with the state’s reduction-in-force policies.

No determinations have been made regarding the disposition of these prison properties once they are closed.

The Department of Correction also ended its contracts last month with two privately operated facilities that provided residential substance abuse treatment to minimum-custody inmates. The contracts with Mary Frances Center in Tarboro and Evergreen Rehabilitation Center in St. Paul’s were eliminated in the state budget. Mary Frances Center provided 100 treatment beds for female inmates and Evergreen Rehabilitation Center provided 100 beds for males.
