Sussex Correctional Institution

The Sussex Correctional Institution (SCI) is located in Georgetown, Delaware. Opened in 1931, SCI is one of Delaware's oldest correctional facilities. SCI houses maximum, medium, and minimum security inmates. SCI also houses the Youthful Criminal Offenders Program YCOP. SCI houses an all-male population. A major expansion project was recently completed at SCI. Between April 1997 and April 2000, 760 beds were added to the facility for a total capacity of 1,109 beds. The expansion brought the total capacity of the institution to 1206. SCI is also home to the nationally recognized substance abuse treatment program called KEY. In an effort to reduce crime and recidivism, Governor Thomas R. Carper and the Department of Correction unveiled the program at SCI on February 10, 1998. SCI's program is called KEY South. The KEY program is an intense, discipline-based therapeutic substance abuse treatment program for 180 offenders at SCI. Several programs designed to facilitate rehabilitative efforts are in place at SCI. These programs include educational opportunity, vocational training, work assignments, spiritual/religious opportunity and a variety of other classes and programming.
