Arizona State Prison - Marana - MTC

Custody/Security Info

Arizona State Prison - Marana - MTC is a minimum security state prison located at 12610 W Silverbell Rd in Marana, AZ operated by the Arizona Department of Corrections. This institution is considered the best situation to be in if you have to be incarcerated. Inmates assigned to minimum security prisons generally pose the least risk to public safety. Inmates live in dormitories on a campus that resembles a school more than a prison. Inmates must have less than 8 years on their sentence, be non-violent with a clear disciplinary history to qualify for minimum designation. There is much less supervision of inmate movement within the prison than at any other custody level.
