As part of its mandate to inspect Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP) facilities housing incarcerated DC residents, the DC Corrections Information Council (CIC) conducted onsite inspections of USP Florence ADMAX and USP Florence-High in Florence, Colorado on April 26-28, 2017. The CIC urges you to contact the CIC if you have any information you’d like to share regarding these facilities.
Located over 1,600 miles from DC, FBOP’s Florence Correctional Complex collectively houses 49 inmates from DC. USP Florence ADMAX is the most secure prison in the federal system and was designed for inmates who are considered too violent for ordinary federal facilities or have other serious behavioral concerns. Although DC inmates are less than 2.5% of the federal prison population, the 31 DC inmates at USP Florence ADMAX disproportionately represent almost 8% of the population there.
During the inspections, the CIC toured the facilities, evaluated programming, and spoke with inmates and staff. Prior to the inspection, the CIC sent requests to incarcerated DC residents at the facilities, requesting confidential one-on-one interviews with a CIC representative. The CIC spoke to each DC resident who was willing and available to speak with us during our visit.
If you are aware of an individual at USP Florence or ADX Florence who would like to speak with the CIC, email, call or write to the CIC so that we can place him on the our list of interviewees on the days of the inspection. The CIC also encourages anyone with knowledge about the conditions of confinement at either facility to contact us with their experiences or information.
