The inmates housed at Washington Corrections Center located at 2321 W Dayton Airport Rd in Shelton, 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.

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.
