The Capital Transition is a multi-level security prison located in Trenton, New Jersey. Opened since August 1995 and originally constructed with two 168-cell housing units, this facility added two more 168-cell units and two 84-cell units bringing the capacity to 1,680 offenders.

Renee Baker is the current Warden of this facility. In addition to the 213 correctional staff, The Capital Transition employs a number of professional and skilled staff:

  • 14 skilled maintenance personnel
  • 5 warehouse employees
  • 5 correctional cooks
  • 1 laundry/dry-cleaning specialist
  • 1 recreation specialist
  • 13 classification specialists
  • 9 administrative/clerical

Trenton houses medium-custody general population inmates and close-custody protective segregation inmates, along with a separate unit housing a small number of minimum-custody inmates.

Inmates are placed according to their custody level which is determined at intake. The mission of this facility is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never return to prison and thus lower the state’s recidivism rate.

The Capital Transition offers a wide range of programs for the inmate population and an opportunity to enroll in educational classes in pursuit of a GED, high school diploma or college degrees. Trenton’s legislatively approved Structured Living Program (SLP) is one of the most successful.

The Capital Transition also offers vocational training in areas of dry cleaning, culinary food service, computers, horticulture, RESPECT, ServSafe, and automotive maintenance and repair. Trenton also has its own medical and mental health staff serving the inmate population.

The Capital Transition provides incentives for inmates to earn an education while incarcerated; among these incentives is the application of educational credits toward the reduction of sentences. An offender, who earns a certificate, educational or vocational, while behind bars, may qualify to expedite his/her release date.

Inmates at this facility are fed three meals a day, and they can purchase snacks from the commissary. All meals are approved by a dietician.
