The Correctional Association (CA) visited Mohawk Correctional Facility, a medium security male prison located near Utica in the city of Rome, New York on July 12th and 13th, 2010. Situated on the southern portion of the Mohawk-Oneida campus, a 150-acre complex that originated as a residential center for the developmentally disabled, Mohawk was converted into a prison in 1988. Mohawk held 1,167 inmates at the time of our visit, with 1,117 of those in general confinement. Due to the recent closing and consolidation of several dorms, the facility’s capacity was 1,184 inmates, a decrease from the previous capacity of 1,417. The Walsh Regional Medical Unit (RMU), a 112-bed maximum security skilled nursing facility for inmates from DOCCS facilities in the central and western portions of the New York State, is located on Mohawk’s grounds. Mohawk also maintains a 48-bed Special Housing Unit (SHU) for inmates in disciplinary confinement, which held 20 inmates at the time of our visit.
