Pasquotank Correctional Institution is a high security prison for adult males and was built using the same design as Foothills and Marion Correctional Institutions in western North Carolina.
Pasquotank houses close, and minimum custody adult felon males.
Inmates are sent to Pasquotank based on classification reassignment, demotions in custody, administrative transfer from other close security prisons, segregation housing needs and mental health program needs.
The prison is comprised of four buildings which, in addition to inmate housing, will include a visiting area, recreation area, dining hall, warehouse, vocational and academic classrooms, programs, medical and mental health offices and administrative offices.
Inmates work in kitchen, janitorial and maintenance duties in the prison. Minimum security inmates work in community work squads, Department of Transportation squads and for Pasquotank County recycling. There is also an education program that prepares inmates for the GED test, as well as vocational programs.
A perimeter security fence with a built-in electronic intrusion detection system alerts armed correction officers at the prison gatehouse and in roving patrols to escape attempts.
