The inmates housed at Roederer Correctional located at 3000 Morgan Rd in LaGrange, KY 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.

RCC is a medium/minimum security state prison situated approximately 20 miles north of Louisville, KY, originally as a one hundred fifty (150) bed minimum-security "work camp" institution to operate a 3,000-acre prison farm. It serves the department of corrections in several ways, primarily by acting as an intake assessment and classification center that processes all adult males in the state (except for Death Row inmates).

In 1987, Roederer was converted to a medium/minimum security institution with one hundred (100) medium and one hundred fifty-two (152) minimum custody inmates. The institution underwent another major transition on May 1, 1989, when it was transformed to the Assessment and Classification Center for the Kentucky Department of Corrections for all incoming state prisoners, excluding inmates that received the death penalty.

Physical Layout - The physical plant consists of a total of 1002 beds, 730 are medium-security beds are within the fenced perimeter. 100 of these medium-custody inmates are permanently assigned inmates, which provide support services for the institution. These inmates provide the basic services to the institution such as Food Service, Laundry, Legal Aide Office, Grievance Office, Janitorial, etc. The remaining six hundred thirty (630) medium-security beds are utilized to house inmates entering the system as part of the Assessment Center for the Department of Corrections. There are currently two hundred seventy-two (272) minimum custody beds located outside the fence. Two hundred (200) minimum custody inmates are participating in the Substance Abuse Program. The remaining seventy-two (72) minimum custody inmates also provide support services for the institution such as Maintenance, Warehouse, Horticulture Program, and the Farm Operation.
