AL DOC - Kilby Correctional Facility

Custody/Security Info

State maximum facilities are high-security institutions designed primarily to house violent offenders with longer sentences, and a history of violence and creating problems for the staff. High-security facilities are also referred to as penitentiaries. These prisons are usually behind heavy-duty perimeters, including high, thick walls and reinforced fences. There are cameras situated throughout the buildings for close monitoring of inmate actions. Inmates secured in high-security facilities are not allowed to work out in the field in any community programs.

Housing consists of single and double cells with very limited movement. The cells are self-contained built for 23 hours per day detainment, one-hour for recreation and fresh air. All perimeters are triple-fenced with extensive electronic surveillance. They have no opportunity to socialize with other inmates. They are considered to be the most dangerous of all the incarcerated population.

Facility Type

Kilby Correctional is a state prison operated by the Alabama Department of Corrections (DOC), serving as a facility to house and rehabilitate criminals sentenced by a judge for a specified period. Funded by state tax money, these institutions provide necessities like food and clothing while employing staff to ensure efficient operations. Inmates are under strict rules and regulations, facing additional punishments for violations, while still retaining certain rights granted by state and federal constitutions. Resembling a self-contained community, the prison has its own governance, law enforcement, judiciary, and amenities such as a commissary, housing, medical facilities, library, and places of worship. Inmates are assigned tasks to contribute to the facility's functioning. Privacy is minimal, with communal facilities and strict regulations governing personal space and possessions. Visitation privileges are granted to inmates in good standing, but contact is limited, and all communications, aside from legal calls, are monitored closely.
