Arkansas Federal Facilities

There is only one federal prison in Arkansas. It is called Forrest City Federal Correctional Complex and contains two units. First, there is Forrest City Low, which is a low security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum-security satellite camp. This unit houses 1,853 male inmates at the prison and another 271 in the camp. Then there is the FCI Forrest City Medium which is a medium-security federal correctional institution that houses 927 male offenders.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FOB) is the agency in charge of all federal facilities along with Arkansas federal prison inmate records. If someone wanted to perform an Arkansas federal prison inmate search, they would need to contact the FOB directly or check on their website and use the inmate locator. The Federal Bureau of Prison was established in 1930 to: “provide more progressive and humane care for federal inmates, to professionalize the prison service, and to ensure consistent and centralized administration of federal prisons.” When the FOB was established, there were only 14 federal prisons; now there are 44 federal prison facilities. The prison population has fluctuated over the years but has steadily increased to reach the current total of 177,402.

Federal Correctional Complex

The Forrest City Correctional Complex contains two different units, each with a different security level. These facilities fall in the South-Central Region for BOP jurisdiction. They are both located in Saint Francis County.

  • Forrest City Low is a low security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum-security satellite camp.
  • FCI Forrest City Medium which is a medium-security federal correctional institution.

The FOB website has detailed pages for each facility with visiting hours and information, directions, phone numbers to call, and details on how to send money or gifts to prisoners housed there. They also have an orientation handbook for new prisoners posted online to make the transition to inmate smoother.
