Massachusetts Correctional Institution Cedar Junction

Massachusetts Correctional Institution Cedar Junction, called MCI Cedar Junction for short, is located in South Walpole Massachusetts.  It is a maximum security prison that houses adult males who are often violent and have long sentences.  This prison also houses the Departmental Disciplinary Unit which is where inmates who are difficult to manage are incarcerated.  In addition, this facility is responsible for the reception and diagnostics of all adult males in the state.  This intake process consists of mental and physical evaluations of the inmate, at which time the inmate is classified, a process that usually takes twelve to sixteen weeks.  A report containing suggested treatment programs and counseling will accompany the inmate to his new more permanent location, although sometimes inmates may be placed in a permanent position at Cedar Junction.

Offenders at Cedar Junction can also work in the manufacturing of license plates for the state, and earn a menial wage.  In addition to work programs, this facility offers substance abuse treatment, anger management, fitness, and parenting programs.
