Colorado State Prison Inmate Search and Prison Information
The Colorado State Prison is also commonly referred to as the Colorado State Penitentiary or CSP for short. The Colorado State Prison is a Level 5 maximum-security facility in the great state of Colorado. The Colorado State Prison is in the East Canon Complex. The East Canon Complex is composed of six other state facilities that house inmate’s on all security levels.
The Colorado State Prison is nestled in Fremont County. The facility is east of Canon City, Colorado. The Colorado State Prison is one out of 25 correction facilities under the Colorado Department of Corrections management. The Colorado State Prison is one out of seven correction facilities in Canon City.
The Colorado State Prison is the oldest correction facility out of the seven in and around Canon City. The facility was built back in 1871. The Colorado State Prison was predating the statehood of Colorado. This was originally the state penitentiary. It was home to the death row inmates of Colorado. Not to mention that this was the facility where the 1929 riot took place.
It was not until 1993 when the current facility finally opened their doors. The original facility was re-dedicated as the Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility, which happens to be a medium-security prison.
The other facilities located in the East Canon Complex include the following:
- Centennial Correctional Facility
- Arrowhead Correctional Center
- Fremont Correctional Facility
- Four Mile Correctional Center
- Skyline Correctional Center
All of these facilities are situated in the unincorporated area in Fremont County.
As of late, the Colorado State Prison is home to some of the most violent, yet dangerous inmates in all of Colorado. The Colorado State Prison is also home of the Lethal Injection Chamber. However, all death row inmates are not housed in Colorado State Prison. Death row inmates in the state of Colorado are housed in the Sterling Correctional Facility.
Inmates in the Colorado State Prison are either under solitary confinement or Administrative Segregation. All inmates that are in Administrative Segregation will be in their cells 23-hours out of the day. The Colorado State Prison also houses a small percentage of high-security inmates. This started back in 2012. However, as of current, solitary confinement is not allowed anymore within the prison system, so the Colorado State Prison now will permit the inmates to leave their cells to get some yard time.
In 2011, the Colorado State Prison housed on average 984 inmates.
When the Colorado State Prison opened their doors, the death row inmates were transferred from Colorado Territorial Correctional Facility to the Colorado State Prison. As of lately, the state of Colorado does not have a death row. This stopped in 2011 when Colorado decided it was best to move the death row inmates out to Sterling Correctional Facility. They did this due to the fact they needed to settle a federal lawsuit that was filed by a death row inmate named Nathan Dunlap. Dunlap put in the lawsuit that he felt there was a lack of outdoor exercise allowed when he was at the Colorado State Prison.
Throughout the years, the Colorado State Prison was home to many publicly known inmates. Some of these inmates are as follows.
Charles ‘Chucky’ Limbrick Jr.
Limbrick was one of the youngest inmates in the Colorado State Prison history to be tried and convicted as an adult. Limbrick was convicted on the charge of 1st-degree murder for the death of his own mother back in 1988. He was just a 15 year old kid. Limbrick was sentenced to serve 40 years to life. He was released on parole in 2011.

Kimball was a serial killer who was sentenced to serve 70 years back in 2009.
