The inmates housed at Sing Sing Correctional Facility located at 354 Hunter St in Ossining, 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.

Sing Sing Correctional Facility is a maximum security prison operated by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in the village of Ossining, in the U.S. state of New York. It is located about 30 miles north of New York City on the east bank of the Hudson River.

In 1970, the name was changed to the "Ossining Correctional Facility," but it reverted to its original name in 1985. "Sing Sing" was derived from the name of a Native American tribe, "Sinck Sinck" (or "Sint Sinck"), from whom the land was purchased in 1685.

Sing Sing prison confines about 1,700 prisoners. There are plans to convert the original 1825 cell block into a time-specific museum. The prison property is bisected by the Metro-North Railroad's four-track Hudson Line.

Mental health treatment is offered to inmates in an Intermediate Car Program for inmates with acute to medium mental illness, a Transitional Intermediate Care Program, and Residential Crisis Treatment Program which is reserved for inmates with serious mental health issues. Sing Sing Correctional Facility offers a wide array of educational opportunities, from adult basic education and GED courses to college programs offered through several colleges that offer from an Associate's degree to a Masters Program. Furthermore, inmates can take vocational studies in carpentry, computers, electrical, plumbing/heating, small engine repair, custodial maintenance, and welding. Alternatives to violence courses, substance abuse treatment and transitional services are also available to inmates.

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.
