Otisville is a medium-security prison for men committed to the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) located in the town of Mount Hope, Orange County, New York, approximately 90 miles northwest of New York City. The facility operated as a tuberculosis sanitarium, a facility to house system-involved youth, and then a drug treatment center before it was acquired in 1976 by DOCCS and converted to a medium-security prison for male prisoners. The Prison Visiting Project of the Correctional Association of New York (CA) conducted a visit to Otisville on July 26, 2011. The purpose of our visit was to assess programs, physical facilities and conditions for both prisoners and staff within the prison.
