Lanesboro Correctional Insititution

Lanesboro Correctional Institution is a state men's prison in Polkton, North Carolina, first opened in January, 2004 and operated by the North Carolina Department of Public Safety Adult Corrections. As one of the state's four largest prisons, the official capacity is 1,800 prisoners.[1] The facility houses medium- and close-security inmates. As of March 2012 Lanesboro was one of six state prisons put on lockdown to squelch gang fights and coordinated gang activity.[2] As of May 2016, state corrections officials announced that the Lanesboro facility would be merged with the adjacent Brown Creek Correctional Institution, which is to be converted from medium to minimum security. The move is meant to address staffing challenges and the "checkered pasts" of both facilities.[3] Due to the merger with Brown Creek Correctional the minimum Camp formally known as Anson Correctional will be sitting empty. The new minimum camp will become a pro type for prisons in the state as a high security minimum custody facility. Housing younger gang related inmates without having the constraints of being in a higher custody grade. The merger still has not helped with staffing or staffs "checkered pasts". The medium and close facility or original Lanesboro still has a major drug problem, staff assaults, and staffing concerns . FBI and SBI have and still conducting various investigations within the main facility. Staffing still remains an issue, as of early in fall of 2017, all facilities at Lanesboro was approximately 100-115 staff members short..
