Suffolk County House of Corrections South Bay

Built to replace its antiquated predecessor on Deer Island, the Suffolk County House of Correction at South Bay opened on Dec. 26, 1991. The seven building facility houses adult male and female inmates convicted of crimes with a sentence of 2½ years or less. This decentralized, direct supervision correctional center is comprised of 27 separate housing units to which inmates are assigned in accordance with a comprehensive classification system. Following the opening of the House of Correction, the population steadily increased from 832 offenders to as high as 1,900 in 2000. On trend with national statistics, the House of Correction, over the last several years, has seen a decline in the number of offenders housed. The average daily population in 2015 was approximately 950..
