Arkansas DOC - North Central Unit basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 870-297-4311

The inmates housed at ADC- North Central Unit located at 10 Prison Cir in Calico Rock, AR 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.

The North Central Unit is a medium-minimum security state prison facility that has the capacity to house 800 inmates located in Calico Rock AR operated by the Arkansas Department of Corrections. This facility also provides inmates who do maintenance on the grounds of various places in and around the region. Inmates may take part in educational programs including basic adult education and programs that allow the inmate to earn a GED. A pre-release program helps inmates get ready for their release date and can provide a good foundation of opportunities for the inmate once they are out of custody. North Central takes part in the Paws in prison program which allows inmates to work with animals and has a gardening program that teaches inmates the basics of growing and cultivating plants.
