Located at 44150 Airport Rd in New London, NC, ACI carefully assigns inmates based on their custody level, considering factors like criminal history. ACI offers diverse educational and vocational programs aimed at equipping offenders for successful reintegration into society and reducing recidivism. Through these initiatives, inmates gain skills and confidence, fostering personal growth and resilience.

ACI is situated on 100 acres of land in Stanly County, serving as a medium-security facility for adult males. It comprises three units for the general population and a segregation unit housing 40 men, accommodating a total of 816 inmates. With a staff of 300, ACI emphasizes both education and vocational training for offenders.

Stanly Community College provides educational programs within the institution, offering GED instruction, and courses in computer applications and electronics technology. Inmates have the opportunity to obtain their GED while also receiving vocational training in computers, electronic technology, and carpentry.

In addition to educational opportunities, selected inmates at Albemarle Correctional Institution are assigned to various work details, including picking up trash and clearing debris both on and off prison grounds. Inside the facility, hundreds of inmates are involved in maintaining the grounds, food preparation, cooking, janitorial duties, and laundry services.

Furthermore, ACI facilitates road crews for inmates to work off prison grounds, aiding in clearing debris and removing trash from roadsides. These opportunities for additional work assignments help inmates develop valuable skills and contribute to their rehabilitation process while incarcerated.

Visitation Information

Visits to NCDPS offenders are by appointment only. Call the prison where the offender is housed to schedule an appointment. Visitors should call the prison the day before a scheduled visit to confirm the facility's visitation status.
Also, video visitation now is available at most but not all prisons, so family and friends may be able to do a virtual visit if they prefer. Call the prison for additional information on video visitation at the facility.
Visitation by family and friends is encouraged and can make a positive difference during an offender's time in prison. Prison staff understand the importance of offenders maintaining contact with their family and friends. However, offenders can not be assigned to specific facilities within the prison system for the convenience of visitation.
For more information regarding prisons and visitation, please read the Handbook for Family and Friends of Offenders.
