In addition to housing medium security federal prisoners next to the Camp, it also contains a unit designated for the housing of pre-trial and pre-sentence federal detainees. In 2012, a joint investigation conducted by the FBI, the Bureau of Prisons, and the Department of Justice Inspector General exposed a drug distribution ring run by several inmates with the assistance of corrupt prison staff members.
