The Federal Correctional Institution, Safford (FCI Safford) operates as a low-security federal prison solely housing male inmates in southeastern Arizona. Located roughly 7 miles south of Safford, the facility prioritizes rehabilitation through a focus on work programs and educational opportunities.

Inmates at FCI Safford are required to participate in work assignments. Ideally, these assignments align with their interests or existing skill sets. Inmates facing financial hardship are given priority placement on the waiting list for Federal Prison Industries (UNICOR), a major employer within the prison specializing in textile production for government agencies. The standard workday for inmates starts at 7:30 am and concludes at 3:30 pm. However, work schedules may vary depending on the specific assignment, with some positions like UNICOR, food service, laundry, recreation, and unit orderly duties operating on adjusted schedules.

Education is another cornerstone of FCI Safford's rehabilitation efforts. All inmates lacking a high school diploma must participate in the mandatory GED program. The facility further expands educational opportunities through collaboration with Eastern Arizona College, offering inmates access to various college-level courses both in classrooms and through correspondence programs. Additionally, vocational training programs equip inmates with valuable skills that can benefit them upon release.

FCI Safford has housed several notable figures throughout its history, including John Ehrlichman, a former advisor to President Richard Nixon who was convicted for his role in the Watergate scandal, David Hall, a former Oklahoma governor found guilty of bribery and extortion, and Allen Pace, the mastermind behind the multi-million dollar theft from the Dunbar Armored Car Company.

In conclusion, FCI Safford's focus on work programs and educational opportunities aims to equip inmates with the tools and knowledge necessary for successful reintegration into society upon release. This approach fosters a sense of responsibility and promotes positive behavioral change throughout their time in the prison system.
