- General Info:
- The 712-cell Pasquotank Correctional Institution is a high-security prison for adult males and was dedicated in March 1996. The $33.7 million construction project was funded in July of 1991 as part of a $103 million prison construction program. Adjacent to the institution is a 200-bed minimum-security prison funded in the $87.5 million prison construction program approved by the General Assembly in July 1993. The prison employs nearly 460 people and has an annual operating budget of nearly $16 million. Pasquotank Correctional Institution was built using the same design as Foothills and Marion correctional institutions in western North Carolina. It houses close-medium-and-minimum custody adult felon males and has a maximum capacity of 1,186. Inmates are sent to Pasquotank based on classification reassignment, demotions in custody, administrative transfer from other close-security prisons, segregation housing needs and mental health program needs. Pasquotank Correctional Institution is located in Elizabeth City, N.C.
