Who We Are
Snake River Correctional Institution (SRCI) is a multi-security facility which opened in August 1991. Although sited for 3,000 beds, only 576 medium security and 72 minimum security beds were constructed in Phase I. In 1994, the Oregon Legislative Assembly approved construction of the remaining 2,352 beds at a cost of $175 million, representing the largest state general funded public works project in state history.
About Our Prison Ministry
The recently completed institution is the largest prison in Oregon with 2,336 medium security beds, 154 minimum security beds and 510 special housing beds (administrative segregation, disciplinary segregation, intensive management, infirmary and special management units). The expanded prison has several unique features such as decentralized inmate services that enable the department to separate various offenders into discrete housing units.
