The inmates housed at Kirkland CI located at 4344 Broad River Rd in Columbia, SC 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.

Kirkland CI receives, assesses, classifies and assigns all male offenders age 17 and above sentenced to 91 days or more. Combined, the R&E process receives approximately 8000 offenders each year. Kirkland is the site for the Maximum Security Unit that serves the state. This specialized housing unit is where the most dangerous and violent offenders are housed. In addition to the normal inmate population, Kirkland maintains the death row for the entire state.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services.
