The Correctional Association (CA) visited Marcy Correctional Facility, a medium security prison for men in Marcy, NY, on April 2nd and 3rd, 2008. At the time of our visit, Marcy had a total inmate population of 1,093 men, close to its capacity of 1,122. The facility recently closed its disciplinary housing unit, the 200-bed S-Block, to begin construction on a Residential Mental Health Unit (RMHU) as the result of litigation and legislation requiring enhanced services for inmates with serious mental illness who are sentenced to disciplinary housing. The Visiting Committee was not permitted to visit the construction site, nor was the facility able to provide information on the new construction. The facility operates academic, vocational, and Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment programs.
