Draper Correctional Facility Inmate Search and Prison Information
The Draper Correctional Facility is situated in Elmore, Alabama. The Draper Correctional Facility is also operated and managed by the Alabama Department of Corrections. However, as of late 2017, the Alabama Department of Corrections officially came out and stated that Draper Correctional Facility in Elmore, Alabama will be shutting down for good. The Draper Correctional Facility will no longer be used as a correctional facility and will no longer be housing any inmates shortly.
This came as a surprise to many individuals because the Draper Correctional Facility has been around since the beginning of time in Elmore, Alabama. But the Alabama Department of Corrections stated that they spent a good solid two years looking into the Draper Correctional Facility staffing levels. The Alabama Department of Corrections also was trying to build a plan that will also cease operations in a few other selected facilities a well.
It was not until a few months ago when a report came out from the Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood; an architectural and engineering firm that stated that the Draper Correctional Facility would cost over $30 million in repairs alone to just meet the minimum standards to keep the facility operational.
If you do not know this already the Draper Correctional Facility opened it’s doors back in 1938. The Draper Correctional Facility is one of Alabama’s oldest prisons. The Alabama Department of Corrections now believes that the facility has officially outlived its useful life.
The Draper Correctional Facility was originally designed to house only 600 inmates at one time, but the Draper Correctional Facility currently houses up to 1,000 inmates at a given time, which is almost double the occupancy, it was designed for.
However, when the Draper Correctional Facility closes its doors the building will then turn into a place for educational and vocational training programs for inmates who are kept in correctional facilities nearby. These programs will be held by the J.F Ingram State Technical College.
All staff members who work for the Draper Correctional Facility will not lose their job. They will be transferred to other correctional facilities within Montgomery and Elmore counties. While the staff members will be moved to other correctional facilities the inmates will also be transferred to these other correctional facilities as well. With these changes the following correctional facilities are expected to see an increase of 20 to 25 percent in their staffing levels:
