The inmates housed at Caswell CI located at 444 County Home Rd in Blanch, 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.

Caswell Correctional Center is located in Blanch, North Carolina near Yanceyville in Caswell County, and is a medium security prison for adult males. The facility houses 460 adult male offenders.

Inmates may be selected to work on one of seven road crews that provide armed supervised labor to the Department of Transportation, usually clearing roadways. Additional work details for inmates include kitchen and building/custodial maintenance. Any inmate at this facility who does not possess a high school diploma or GED may take courses to earn the equivalent. Caswell Correctional Center offers inmates vocational training in HVAC, welding, horticulture and industrial maintenance. Offenders can learn pneumatic and electrical tool repair and then participate in work details that help repair tools for public agencies in the surrounding area.

History - Caswell was one of 51 county prisons for which the state assumed responsibility with the passage of the Conner bill in 1931. It was one of 61 field unit prisons renovated or built during the late 1930s to house inmates who worked building roads. Like many of the era's prisons, Caswell also had a farm worked by the inmates to supply the prison kitchen. The prison farm operated into the 1960s.

Caswell initially housed misdemeanants until 1968 when medium and minimum custody inmates were housed there together. In 1974, Caswell has converted into a medium security prison housing 118 inmates. With the addition of triple-bunking, three beds stacked on top of each other, the population rose to 168.

A new dining hall was built at the prison in the 1950s. In the 1970s, inmates supervised by correction engineers built a recreation building and a segregation unit with 24 single cells.

In January 1989, a 104-bed inmate dormitory and support buildings including a programs building with classroom space and a recreation building opened. This addition was funded by the legislature as part of the $28.5 million Emergency Prison Facilities Development program in 1987.

Lawmakers provided two 104-inmate dormitories, an administration building, operations center, and dining hall as part of the $75 million prison construction program approved in July 1990. After a gatehouse and motion detection system was installed, security towers at the prison were removed. With the completion of these additions in January 1993, staff increased to 154 and the inmate population increased to a maximum of 484.

Inmates may also be assigned to work on one of seven Department of Transportation road squads clearing road right of way under the supervision of armed correction officers. They may also work in the prison, typically as kitchen help or keeping the prison clean and in repair. For two years in the late 1990s, inmate construction crews totaling up to 88 prisoners were housed at Caswell as they built the 600-man housing unit at the nearby Dan River Prison Work Farm.

Piedmont Community College works with the prison to provide vocational courses including welding, HVAC technology, horticulture, and industrial maintenance technology. Inmates with less than a high school education may participate in GED preparatory classes or remedial education. Inmates are also given an opportunity to participate in Bible study and worship services.

In 1997, Piedmont Community College began to provide instruction in electrical and pneumatic tool repair. Inmates who complete this program are put to work in a small tool repair program, repairing tools for the Department of Transportation and other public agencies.
