Lakin Correctional Center is located in West Columbia, West Virginia. This facility provides health-related, social and/or vocational services to mentally disabled male and female inmates to help them attain their maximum functional capacity.

Lakin Correctional Center has a capacity of 146297 inmates. This facility opened and began processing inmates in 1937 but has been renovated since that time, to accommodate the growing prison population. Scott Jordan is the current Warden of this facility.

Inmates are placed according to their custody level which is determined by their past criminal history and their sentencing. There are many educational and vocational training programs for all inmates. This facility’s mission 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, thus lowering the West Virginia’s recidivism rate.

Inmates are housed in separate areas depending on the crimes they committed, their current risk assessment, and their behavior
