The inmates housed at Otisville Correctional Facility located at 57 Sanitorium Rd in Otisville, NY 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.

Otisville Correctional Facility is a medium-security state prison located in Orange County, New York, United States. It is located adjacent to the federal system prison (Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville), but each facility operates separately from the other and they are otherwise unrelated. Both are in the Town of Mount Hope. The facility is secured by razor wire fencing and armed horse-mounted guards.

The site was used as a tuberculosis sanitarium (1906–1955), a Division of Youth facility (Otisville Training Facility, up to 1972), and briefly a drug treatment center, before it became a state prison. A sawmill for lumber and maple syrup production were soon introduced for prisoner work. Due to the length of the prison fence and rough terrain, exterior guards are mounted on horses.

One of the more unique programs at this facility is the puppies behind bars program, which allows inmates to work training dogs. Inmates can earn a GED while incarcerated and private funding has made it possible for inmates to take college courses through John Jay College. Additional programs offer inmates substance and alcohol abuse treatment, and life/problem-solving skills can be obtained through the Compadre Helper Program. Additionally, there is vocational training is offered in small engine repair, horticulture, building maintenance, and masonry.

Notable Inmates - Mike " the Situation" Sorrentino MTV's hit reality show "Jersey Shore" star is currently serving his prison sentence for tax evasion.

Covid Visitation Information

Unfortunately, as a result of the significant increase in COVID-19 infections among the incarcerated population, staff and the surrounding communities, visitation will be temporarily suspended statewide, effective December 30, 2020. Non-contact legal visits will be allowed to continue under previously announced protocols.

The Department continues to work with our phone and tablet vendor as previously announced to ensure continued access to some free calls and secure messages each week. The Department will also make (5) free stamps available to the population for general correspondence.

We will continue to monitor the infection rates and resume visitation as soon as practical. We recognize that visitation is a vital part of family reunification and therefore, we will resume it when safe to do so.

The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) encourages visits by family and friends, which can be a positive influence during the time a person spends in prison and after their release. Research shows that incarcerated individuals who receive regular visits adjust much better once they are released from prison when the privilege is used to maintain positive relationships.

DOCCS wants the visiting experience to be family-friendly and positive. The Department has Visitor Hospitality Centers that provide shelter and respite for visiting families and friends prior to entering the facility. Restrooms, a baby changing station, lockers for storing personal belongings, and information concerning rules and regulations pertaining to visitation, including packages for inmates, are available.

To ensure the safety of family, friends who are visiting, as well as our facilities staff and the incarcerated population, visits are subject to DOCCS rules. To help address questions you may have about visitations, DOCCS has prepared a variety of resources.
