The inmates housed at Marquette Branch Prison located at 1960 US Hwy 41 S in Marquette, MI 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.

Marquette Branch Prison is a maximum security state prison that houses about 1,100 adult male inmates under the supervision of the Michigan Department of Corrections. The prison houses four level I units located outside of the level V facility. The level V facility consists of three housing units and a segregation unit. Eight armed guard towers and a concrete wall lined with razor wire ensures the level V portion of the facility stays secure. The level I inmates are encased by two fences with electronic monitoring/detection. Inmates are provided an adult basic education and the ability to earn a GED. Religious worship services are offered through the chaplain's office, and substance abuse treatment is available to all inmates who suffer from drug/alcohol dependency.

The Level V portion of the prison has three General Population housing units and three Administrative Segregation housing units. There are four Level I housing units which are located just outside the Level V portion of the facility.

Programming - Adult Basic Education and General Education Development completion are offered. Other programs include substance abuse treatment and religious services. Available activities include law library, general library and hobbycraft. Many program resources are expanded through participation by community volunteers, such as local clergy and lay people, which gives prisoners increased opportunities to participate in programs.

Prisoners are provided with on-site routine medical and dental care. Serious problems are treated at the department's Duane L. Waters Health Care in Jackson. Emergencies can be referred to a local hospital.

Security - The Level V perimeter is protected with a concrete wall, razor-ribbon wire, electronic detection systems, and eight gun towers. Level I is surrounded by two chain-link fences and an electronic detection system.
