Eastern Correctional Institution

Eastern Correctional Institution is located in the town of Maury in Greene County and opened in January 1983 as a male facility. The facility was converted to house female inmates in 2014. However, the state prison system underwent a remissioning project at three facilities across the state and Eastern CI was converted back to a male close custody facility in the winter of 2019. Eastern is adjacent to Greene Correctional Institution and is built on land that at one time was farmed by the minimum security prisons inmates. Eastern and its sister institution, Southern Correctional Institution in Troy, opened at the same time, are of the same design and were part of the initial expansion of the prison system in the 1980s and 1990s to house the growing offender population. The two-story prison sits on 38 acres surrounded by double fences. The institution has five housing units, each designed to hold 96 inmates in single cells. Each regular population housing unit is divided into three wings with 24 cells. The segregation unit has two wings each with 24 cells totaling 48 single cells with sinks and toilets.
