The Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) is a governmental agency in the state of Nevada. The NDOC headquarters is located in the Stewart Facility in Carson City.
There are presently nine major institutions; one restitution center; one re-entry center; 10 conservation camps; and one Boot Camp operated by the Department of Corrections.
The Education Division within the Nevada Department of Corrections administers multiple correctional education programs throughout the prison system. In conjunction with local school districts, community colleges and universities the Division offers academic and vocational programs at all levels.
Maximum - This is the most restrictive custody level in the Department. These inmates may not exit their cells without constant, direct supervision. They have a very high potential for violence, and are generally segregated from one another.
Close - This level is assigned to inmates who require housing in a very secure institution or who require frequent, direct supervision. These are inmates with a high potential for misconduct or escape.
Medium - This is the largest custody category of inmates. This is the custody assigned to inmates who would be an escape risk if they were not inside a secure institution, but who are expected to behave without constant, direct supervision. These are the general population inmates of most institutions.
Minimum - This custody is used for inmates who are not considered escape risks when supervised. When they are away from their assigned facility, they must be supervised by a State employee. The facilities they live in do not have gun towers or barrier fences.
Community - This is the least restrictive level, and generally applies to inmates assigned to restitution centers or to State government jobs in Carson City. These inmates are not supervised when they are away from their assigned facility.
Inmates not confined to institutions, yet still monitored by the Department of Corrections are assigned to Residential Confinement. These inmates meet a strict criminal history and behavioral criteria and are supervised by the Division of Parole & Probation. In this program inmates live in their residence and work in the community. When not at work or authorized appointments the inmates remain in their residence under electronic surveillance
The death row for men is located at Ely State Prison. The death row for women is in the Florence McClure Women's Correctional Center
