Join Washington State Correctional Industries (CI) as we tour and take an inside
look into operations at the Monroe Correctional Complex (MCC). The complex houses up to 2,400 adult males consisting of maximum, close, medium and minimum custody levels. The Washington State Reformatory opened in 1910, making it the second oldest operational prison in Washington state, behind the Washington State Penitentiary. Today, MCC is one large complex consisting of five separate facilities; the Washington State Reformatory Unit; the Special Offender Unit (opened 1980); the Twin Rivers Corrections Center (opened 1984 and now known as the Twin Rivers Unit); and the Minimum Security Unit (opened in 1997). The Intensive Management Unit is a security level five facility and is the newest addition to the MCC (opened 2007).


Washington State CI operations at the MCC covers roughly 210,000 square feet of manufacturing and services floor space. Programs include bulk sales, commissary, food packages, food service, laundry, and monthly property packages.


During the tour, you will have the opportunity to see one of Washington State CI’s largest commissaries serving the incarcerated population from seven facilities west of the Cascade Range.
