The Correctional Association (CA) visited Franklin Correctional Facility on June 5th and 6th, 2008. Franklin is a medium security prison located in Malone, New York. It was built in 1986 and initially housed 750 inmates. In 1990 the prison expanded to hold 1730 inmates with the construction of the annex. At the time of our visit, there were 1680 inmates residing in the main complex and annex, where each residential building is divided into two dorms of 60 inmates each. The facility also has a Special Housing Unit (SHU), a 32-bed disciplinary confinement unit, which held 28 inmates at the time of our visit. The prison offers a variety of treatment, vocational and educational programs in its general confinement area.
