Centennial Correctional Facility

The Centennial Correctional Facility (CCF) opened in 1980 as the State of Colorado’s maximum security facility until 1993 when Colorado State Penitentiary (CSP) was completed. CCF was classified as a Level V maximum security facility again in September 2010.  The original building houses 336 adult male inmates as a high security multi-custody level facility.  

CCF-North currently has 240 beds designated for the Residential Treatment Program for inmates with serious mental illness from all custody levels.  The remaining 96 beds house ITC inmates who provide a work force for the facility.  The ITC at CCF North began in February 2017 providing inmates jobs in Physical Plant, Food Service, Laundry and Library.

After being decommissioned in October of 2012, CCF-South was re-opened in March of 2020 and has a current population of 612 inmates in two towers, with 20 beds designated for Restrictive Housing, with the potential capacity of 918 inmates when all three towers are open.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CCF-South houses transitional inmates, who vary in custody levels.
