CO DOC - Arrowhead Correctional Center - (ACC) basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 719-269-5601

The inmates housed at Arrowhead Correctional located at 57500 US-50 in Canon City, CO 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.

Arrowhead Correctional Center is a minimum-security state penal institution that contains about 520 minimum custody and below adult male inmates. Inmates here can take advantage of various work, education and vocational programs. Some of the educational opportunities that exist at this facility are adult basic education classes, GED classes, and even university courses held at the local Adams State College. The treatments this facility provides include substance abuse treatments (drug and alcohol), sex offender treatment, anger management, and treatment for mental health disorders. Jobs in Colorado prisons fall under the Colorado Correctional Industries, which at this institution offer work in automotive maintenance and repair, the processing of fish, greenhouse and gardening, as well as working in the facilities canteen, warehouse and transportation department.

Covid Visitation Information

Given the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19, the Colorado Department of Corrections has begun to modify operations at our facilities.

At this time, in order to best protect CDOC facilities, effective immediately the Department of Corrections will suspend all visiting in our facilities. DOC understands that this will greatly impact the inmate population, but have made the difficult decision that the risk of a visitor potentially bringing COVID-19 into a facility is something that must be prevented to the extent possible. CDOC has implemented video visiting in all facilities (please see the section on Implementation of Video Visiting further down the page) and is providing all offenders in our custody one free 5-minute phone call per week in order to assist offenders in staying connected to those they care about. Legal visits will still occur but will be non-contact visits.

Please see the full announcement regarding our modified operations at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdoc/news/3-11-2020-operational-changes-colorado-department-corrections-facilities-prevention-covid-19. Additional information regarding the department's response to COVID-19 may be found at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdoc/covid-19-faq-and-updates.
