The inmates housed at Anson Correctional Center located at 1019 Old Prison Camp Rd in Polkton, NC 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.

Anson Correctional Institution houses female offenders in close and medium custody in the former Lanesboro Correctional Institution, which housed male close and medium custody offenders. In 2019, male offenders were moved to Southern and Eastern correctional institutions as part of a prison remissioning project.

Correction Enterprises operates the inmate packaging operation, which will continue with female offenders. The facility, which has partnered with Union Supply Direct, is part of the Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program (PIE). Family and friends can order a package of goods from a pre-approved shopping list to send to the offender. Orders are packaged by offenders and shipped quarterly. Offenders working for PIE programs make prevailing wages above the typical wages earned by offenders at other positions.

Anson CI has more programming space than any other female facility in the state, Some of the programs provided include Thinking for a Change, Get it Right (Change Plan Journal, Responsible Thinking, Relapse Prevention), Anger Management, Commitment to Change, Mother Read, Reaching Out from Within, Proverbs 226, High School Equivalency, and three programs directed by Guilford College – Certificate Program, LEED and Peer Support, and Specialist Classes. Other programming will be provided at a later time.
