ASPC-Douglas is one of 13 prison facilities operated by the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC). ASPC-Douglas is located adjacent to the Bisbee-Douglas Airport in Douglas, Cochise County, AZ, 250 miles southeast from the state capital of Phoenix, AZ.

The ASPC-Douglas was first opened as the Cochise Correctional Training Facility early in 1984. It now consists of 5 units, the four others are Eggers, Papago, Mohave and the Complex Detention Unit (CDU). Built with inmate assistance to the contractor, the first unit to become operational at ASPC-Douglas, was the Maricopa unit. The next was the Mohave unit. Due to prison overcrowding, the Gila unit was built with portable modular housing. In 1984, a law was passed that DUI inmates could not be housed with other inmates. This led to the Papago Unit being purchased from the Desert Inn Motel Company, after which it was converted into a prison unit. A special Detention unit was also added.
