The Correctional Association visited Shawangunk Correctional Facility, a maximum security facility for men, located in Wallkill, New York, on July 1 and 2, 2009. The facility was built in 1985 in close proximity to its neighbor, Wallkill Correctional Facility, a medium security facility. At the time of our visit, Shawangunk had a population of 547, close to its capacity of 558 inmates. Of these, 524 men were in the prison’s general population. The facility also has a 24-bed Special Housing Unit (SHU) for inmates in disciplinary confinement.
