The James Crabtree Correctional Center (JCCC) is a medium-security state prison located in Helena and holding up to 1,175 male inmates. The prison's history predates statehood. Built in 1904, it was (in order) a high school, junior college, orphanage, and training school for boys before it became a prison in 1982. Its namesake is former Ouachita Correctional Center Warden James Crabtree.
JCCC provides inmates work opportunities through correctional industries and institutional support. It also provides inmates educational opportunities, cognitive behavioral treatment, anger management and re-entry services to prepare them for life after prison.
