The inmates housed at Shawnee Correctional located at 6665 Rte 146 E in Vienna, 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.

About IL DOC - Shawnee Correctional Center:

The mission statement of Shawnee Correctional Center is to provide for the protection of society through the humane and secure incarceration of adult male offenders, based upon a foundation of legislative and judicial decisions. The administration is committed to instilling responsibility and mature decision making in its offenders. By providing extensive and high-quality educational programs, work assignment opportunities, public service, leisure time activities and religious avenues, the institution is expected to go far beyond the provision of the minimum necessities of food, sanitation, clothing, housing, and medical services to the offenders at the facility.

The Shawnee Correctional Center is a medium security adult male facility and is located in rural Johnson County in southern Illinois. The center is also responsible for a satellite facility, the Hardin County Work Camp, located near Cave-in-Rock. This institution can house 2,155 adult males and it consists of 24 buildings, totaling 369,029 square feet. The living units consist of four X-type units, one receiving and orientation unit, two segregation units, and a 16-bed health care unit. The facility sits on 60 acres with 40 acres inside the fence.

Shawnee Correctional Center also oversees Hardin County Work Camp. Inmates are housed in four units. An intake and orientation unit is responsible for all new inmates, and two segregation units detain any inmate that has safety/security concerns or becomes difficult to manage.

Shawnee Correctional Center participates in correctional industries which allow the inmates to work in metal fabrication/welding, recycling, and in creating outdoor recreational furniture. Inmates can also take a variety of vocational courses like auto repair, and commercial custodial maintenance. Adult basic education and GED courses are available for all inmates.

Inmate Locator

IL DOC - Shawnee Correctional Center is a facility in the Illinois Department of Corrections. The DOC publishes the names of their current inmates and identifies which of their locations the inmate is being held. Your search should start with the first DOC locator to see if your loved one is there. Begin with the first three letters of the offender's first and last name, it does not have to be spelled exactly.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

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.
