David Wade Correctional Center
David Wade Correctional Center (DWCC) is a Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections prison located in an unincorporated area of Claiborne Parish between Homer and Haynesville, Louisiana. The prison is located near the Louisiana-Arkansas border. The N-5 Special Management Unit, which as of 2001 holds some 50 prisoners, is a special protection unit for prisoners at risk. The unit houses former prison officials, convicted ex-police officers from New Orleans, contract killers, pedophiles, and young people with life sentences. Wade opened in 1980. Thirty-nine percent of the beds at Wade are "maximum custody." As is typical of prisons in rural areas, many of the correctional officers who work at Wade are from the local Haynesville-Homer area..
