Shawangunk Correctional Facility


Shawangunk Correctional Facility

Shawangunk Correctional Facility is a maximum security prison for males located in Ulster County, New York in the United States.

History

The prison was constructed in 1983 to expand the maximum security capabilities of the state prison system and was located near the existing Wallkill Correctional Facility, a medium security prison. The co-location was designed so that services by both facilities could be shared, thus reducing the costs of each prison.

The new prison opened in 1985 and was fully operational by 1986. The prison is also one of the few in the system with a sex offender program. Occupational training is provided in the category of building maintenance with specific training in carpentry, electricity and plumbing.
