Ware State Prison

Ware State Prison is located in Waycross Georgia.  It is a closed custody facility that houses inmates who have behavioral/management issues.  The goal of this facility is to take an inmate who is disruptive and modify their behavior so that they may eventually return to the general population of a lower security institution.  Ware State Prison also acts as a release site for sex offenders.  Currently this facility can hold 1,546 adult males.

Inmates are housed in either an open dormitory or in double cells.  If the inmate is difficult to manage or has safety and security concerns they may be housed in segregation.  Offenders can work in supervised support positions for various county run agencies such as the department of transportation, recycling, landscaping and maintenance, a fire station, and fabrication shop.  Inmates are encouraged to participate in counseling that can reduce family violence, help understand and prevent substance abuse and prepare an inmate for re-entry.  Vocational skills taught at Ware State Prison include carpentry, upholstery, automotive repair and maintenance, culinary arts, electronics, and CADD.
