While incarcerated, reading is often the best use of time. Please note that books and magazines, puzzles, and word searches ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate.

The Arizona Department of Corrections Rehabilitation & Reentry (ADCRR)-Safford stands as a crucial correctional facility within the state's network of 13 prison complexes. Located in Graham County, approximately 173 miles southeast of Phoenix, ADCRR-Safford has a rich history and plays a significant role in the state's correctional system.

History traces back to 1968 when the Arizona State Legislature integrated the Fort Grant State Industrial School into the State's Department of Corrections. By 1973, Fort Grant transitioned into an adult male prison, eventually becoming the Fort Grant Unit of ADCRR-Safford in December 1997.

Initially established as the Safford Conservation Center in 1970, the facility began as a minimum security work camp, accommodating 185 adult male inmates in tents and Quonset huts. Over the years, the infrastructure expanded, with permanent buildings like dormitories gradually replacing temporary structures. Notably, the prison's capacity grew with the addition of 100EBUs (Emergency Barracks Units) during the 1986–87 building program.

Presently, ADCRR-Safford has a designated capacity of 730 inmates spread across three housing units, primarily at security levels 2 and 3. The ADC employs a score classification system to determine inmates' appropriate custody and security level placement, ranging from 1 to 5, with 5 indicating the highest risk or need, the Globe Unit (2), the Tonto Unit (3) Fort Grant Unit (2)

In terms of employment opportunities, inmates engage in intergovernmental agreement assignments and various community-based projects. Work crews are deployed daily within Graham County, Greenlee County, and Cochise County for community betterment initiatives. Additionally, inmates participate in education and treatment programs aimed at promoting personal growth and rehabilitation. These include Adult Basic Education, General Equivalency Diploma (GED), vocational courses offered by Eastern Arizona College, and various treatment and self-improvement programs focusing on substance abuse, behavior modification, and reentry preparation.

The Fort Grant Unit, along with other units within ADCRR-Safford, plays a pivotal role in fostering a rehabilitative environment conducive to inmate reintegration and community safety.
