Green River Correctional Complex


Our ultimate mission is to prepare inmates to return to society as contributing, law-abiding citizens. We understand that the best program to accomplish that goal is the example we set while inmates are under our supervision. We are committed to providing an opportunity for all inmates to become productive citizens when they leave Green River Correctional Complex.

We will keep the vision for the future of our institution firmly in our sights. We will be involved in our community and will continually seek ways to inform the community of our mission.
