The inmates housed at Graham Correctional located at 12078 IL-185 in Hillsboro, IL 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.

Graham Correctional Center is a medium-security adult male state correctional facility located on 117 acres and has 50 buildings within the facility house up to 2,013 adult male inmates. Graham Correctional Center houses several special populations, including substance abuse treatment, sex offender treatment and inmates in a kidney dialysis program. Graham continues to offer numerous academic and vocational programs.

This facility operates a reception and classification center that does intake for many offenders in the region. Offenders will be classified and either relocated to a more permanent facility that better suits the offender or will become a long term commitment at Graham Correctional Center. Inmates can receive substance abuse and sex offender treatment at this facility. Inmates are encouraged to participate in academic and vocational opportunities that exist at Graham Correctional Center. Educational courses allow inmates to earn a GED and gain an adult basic education.

Covid Visitation Information

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR VISITORS

To prevent the potential for COVID-19 (coronavirus) exposure, the Illinois Department of Corrections, after consultation with the Illinois Department of Public Health, is temporarily suspending all visits effective March 14 until further notice. We recognize the importance of visitation as an essential component of rehabilitation, family connection and quality of life for those in our care. Our top priority is the health and safety of those who live and work in our facilities, and we are hopeful this policy change will be short-lived. The Department is expanding opportunities for video visits and phone calls. In addition to expanding opportunities for video visits and calls, the Department is providing all people in custody with funds for two 20-minute phone calls and one 15-minute video visit. We also encourage families to write to their incarcerated loved ones as often as possible. Attorneys are still permitted to visit IDOC facilities, but will be screened upon arrival.

The Department has not identified any positive cases of coronavirus, but is taking a number of preventative measures, including:

  • The Department modified its Pandemic Influenza and Continuity of Operations plans.
  • Hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, and cleaning supplies are being made available to all staff and incarcerated individuals.
  • Staff who are presenting symptoms of COVID-19 are being screened by medical personnel.
  • During the intake process, all individuals, including parole violators, are being screened by medical personnel.
  • All correctional facilities and transport vehicles are being routinely cleaned and disinfected.
  • Staff and incarcerated individuals are being encouraged to practice good health habits, including hand-washing.
  • We are communicating regularly with staff and people in custody to ensure they feel safe during this developing situation.

The Department continues to work closely with the Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinois Emergency Management Agency to ensure we are following all guidelines put forth by the Centers for Disease Control. We will continue to monitor this fluid situation and adjust our procedures as necessary.

All visitors, including children under 18 years of age, must be on the offender’s approved visiting list in order to visit. Government officials and legal visitors are excluded and need not be listed on the visiting list to be afforded a visit. Prospective visitors should contact the offender to have them placed on the visiting list.
