Yankton Minimum Unit

Yankton Minimum Unit is a minimum security correctional facility that houses approximately 281 adult males.  This facility is operated as a satellite unit to the Mike Durfee State Prison.  Inmates at the Yankton Minimum Unit can participate in community service projects, provide daily support services to the Human Services Center, and may be eligible for the work release program.  The work release program allows inmates to report to a job in the surrounding community during the day and back to the prison at the end of their shift.  This provides offenders with a higher level of responsibility and a financial foundation for their release.

All inmates at the Yankton Minimum Unit can take GED courses, receive alcohol and substance abuse treatment, and participate in many recreational activities.  Additionally, all offenders are provided dental and medical treatment during their incarceration.  Worship services for various religions are offered through the Chaplain's office.  Yankton Minimum Unit also participates in the Long Distance Parenting Program that provides multiple opportunities for inmates to have greater involvement in their child's lives while in prison.
