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.[1][2] The prison is located near the Louisiana-Arkansas border.[3] 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.[3] Wade opened in 1980.[4] Thirty-nine percent of the beds at Wade are "maximum custody."[5] As is typical of prisons in rural areas, many of the correctional officers who work at Wade are from the local Haynesville-Homer area.[6].
