PCI serves as a high-security facility for adult males, accommodating both close and minimum custody adult felon males within its premises. The institution consists of distinct close custody and minimum custody units, each serving specific operational purposes. Inmate assignments to Pasquotank are determined by various factors, including classification reassignment, custody level demotions, administrative transfers from other close security prisons, segregation housing requirements, and mental health program needs. These criteria shape the inmate population within the facility.

Comprising four buildings, Pasquotank Correctional houses not only inmate accommodations but also essential facilities such as a visiting area, recreation area, dining hall, warehouse, vocational and academic classrooms, as well as medical and mental health offices, along with administrative spaces. These facilities cater to the diverse needs of the inmate population and support their rehabilitation efforts.

Within the institution, inmates are engaged in various work assignments, including kitchen duties, janitorial tasks, and maintenance responsibilities. Additionally, minimum security inmates participate in community work squads, Department of Transportation squads, and contribute to Pasquotank County's recycling initiatives, fostering a sense of responsibility and community involvement.

An integral part of the institution's offerings is its education program, which aims to prepare inmates for the General Education Development (GED) test, enabling them to pursue further educational opportunities. Moreover, vocational programs are available to equip inmates with practical skills that enhance their employability upon release, contributing to their successful reintegration into society.

Ensuring the security of the facility is paramount, with a perimeter security fence equipped with an electronic intrusion detection system.

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.
