There is only one type of federal correctional facility in Indiana, and it is a federal prison complex named Terre Haute FCC. There are no other federal prisons in Indiana. This complex consists of two units, FCI Terre Haute and USP Terre Haute. Each has a different level of custody and serves a different demographic.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons is the government agency in charge of all federal prison facilities and Indiana federal prison inmate records. They have a handy inmate locator feature on their website so that anyone can perform a quick Indiana federal prison inmate search at any time of day or night. Additionally, on the FOB website, they have a page for each facility/unit which gives the hours for visitation, information on how to send money or gifts and receive phone calls from inmates. They have contact info and other details for family and friends.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons mission statement reads: “We protect public safety by ensuring that federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and provide reentry programming to ensure their successful return to the community.” They employ almost 36,000 staff members to carry out their mission. They serve roughly 177,326 inmates with a recidivism rate of only 34%. The average age of inmates in federal prison in Indiana is 36 years old. More than 67% are non-Hispanic. Over 92% are male and the rest female.
Terre Haute FCC has two units described below. Both have access to the commissary, visitation schedules, and prisoners have access to educational programs as well as work-release and other vocational studies.
