Male Medium Security - Opened 2016

North Fork Correctional Center (NFCC) was completed in 1998 and originally operated as a private prison run by then-Corrections Corporation of America (now CoreCivic) housing 1,880 inmates. CoreCivic expanded the facility in 2007 by 1080 beds. Many of its inmates were from the state of California.

The company closed the facility in 2015. ODOC re-opened it the following year as a state prison through a lease agreement.


Most inmates lack education, a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. NFCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas.

College courses (not provided through state funding) are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.

Criminal Thinking

NFCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, and Associates 4 Success programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.


NFCC inmates can get job training through a CareerTech Skills Center, which trains them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find jobs after release.

Courses include Building Maintenance Technology, Career Readiness, Construction Technology and Transportation Distribution & Logistics for Warehouse.
