The inmates housed at Coyote Ridge Corrections located at 1301 N Ephrata Ave in Connell, WA 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.

CRCC is a medium-security and a long-term minimum-security state prison that houses the largest volume of nearly 2,500 adult male inmates from all the Washington Department of Corrections facilities. Inmates here typically have more than five years up to a life sentence to serve. There is a minimum-security camp attached to the main facility called Camp Outlook, where inmates must have five years or less on their sentences. The camp buildings look more like those of an average community college, complete with landscaping. Inmates sleep in dormitories, operate a textile factory, and grow some of their own food in a small garden on the grounds. Some inmates are allowed to go off-site to work in highly supervised jobs (including the traditional litter clean up).

The inmate population is comprised of 10 units; Units B,C,D,E are medium custody and Units F,G,H,I, Camas, and Sage Units are minimum custody. The Sage unit houses assisted living inmates. Religious activities are available to all inmates. Coyote Ridge Corrections Center participates in the Correctional Industries program and employs inmates in a pheasant farm, pillow and mattress factory, textile factory, food processing plant, and large scale laundry operation. Inmates here can work jobs within the institution providing services in grounds keeping, custodial maintenance, and in food serving and preparation. Technical training taught to inmates includes heating ventilation and air conditioning, information technology, automotive repair, building maintenance, and welding. Select offenders can work in supervised positions off of the correctional property on crews that provide labor to various public agencies maintaining roads, parks, sewers, and government properties.

Covid Visitation Information

The Washington State Department of Corrections takes the health and safety of our staff and incarcerated individuals very seriously. At the same time, Corrections recognizes the importance of family visitation, programming, and other opportunities provided to our incarcerated population per our mission of improving public safety by positively changing lives.

Consistent with DOH guidelines, Corrections is working to implement enhanced screening protocols for all employees/contract staff, incarcerated individuals and others entering DOC facilities and field offices to include taking temperatures and answering screening questionnaires.

Until the Department is able to put those protocols into place, we are taking the following actions effective March 13:

  • Suspending visitation at all correctional facilities in Washington, including extended family visits (EFV). Corrections has authorized reimbursement for families scheduled for EFVs;
  • Restricting access for all individuals, with the exception of employees/contract staff and legal professionals, to the Monroe Correctional Complex, Washington Corrections Center and Washington Corrections Center for Women; and
  • Suspending all tours and events involving four or more outside guests at all facilities.

This situation is constantly evolving. Corrections will provide updates as things changes.
