Decatur Correctional Center

Decatur Correctional Center is located in the city of Decatur, Illinois which has a population of 76,122 (as of 2015) residents. This prison has a capacity of 790 inmates, which means this is the maximum amount of beds per facility. Decatur Correctional Center began processing inmates once the original construction was completed and service started in 2000 but may have been expanded or renovated since that time, to accommodate the growing prison population. 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 Shelith Hansbro and houses female offenders.

If you have a family or loved one that is currently incarcerated at Decatur Correctional Center, 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.
