The inmates housed at ASPC Tucson located at 10000 S Wilmot Rd in Tucson, AZ are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

A separate unit held juvenile males convicted as adults, as it does today. The Santa Rita Unit was built in 1982, with the first inmates being received in July 1982.

The 1986-87 building program established the 744-bed Cimarron Unit, creating the Tucson Complex, and added 200 beds to Echo Unit. The Rincon/Santa Rita/Units form a hub, which has buildings for inmate records, health services, maintenance, and a 40-cell central detention unit.

Covid Visitation Information

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry has taken significant actions to mitigate the risk and impacts of COVID-19 in its facilities. Keeping our staff, inmates, and communities safe continues to be our top priority.

To help protect the health of each inmate, staff member, family member, or friend inside the facility, contact visits will remain temporarily suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic until it is deemed safe to reopen the visitation process. Video visitation will continue for those inmates who have visitation privileges. Inmates continue to be eligible for one 30-minute video visit per week to allow as many inmates as possible to participate. No fees are associated with the video visitation.

In the future, when in-person visitation is allowed, we will make advance notice to the inmates, family members, and or friends.
