Gulf Correctional Institution

Gulf Correctional Institution is located in the city of Wewahitchka, Florida which has a population of 1,962 (as of 2013) residents. This prison has a capacity of 1,568 inmates, which means this is the maximum amount of beds per facility. Gulf Correctional Institution began processing inmates once the original construction was completed and service started in 1992 but may have been expanded or renovated since that time, to accommodate the growing prison population. There is an average of 1,508 inmates currently serving time at this facility. Prisoners are housed in separate areas depending on the crimes they committed, their current risk assessment, and their behavior. This facility is currently under the supervision of James Blackwood and houses male offenders.

If you have a family or loved one that is currently incarcerated at Gulf Correctional Institution, the first thing you should do is contact the prison for information on the inmate. Based on the information you are provided, you would then contact either a criminal defense lawyer or a bail bond service. They will provide you with vital information which can be used to defend an individual and in a lot of cases get them released from detention while awaiting trial.
