    This facility is the former Michigan Parole Camp in Jackson, and is located across the street from the old State Prison of Southern Michigan.  It was expanded, with an increase in security, to create a Secure Level I prison which opened in July of 1997.

    Cooper Street also serves as a centralized staging point for prisoners transferring to the Camp Program and as a release facility for prisoners who are about to parole, discharge, or transfer to community center placement. 

    The facility is an active member of the Department's Community Liaison Committee in the Jackson County area, and maintains open lines of communication between the community and prison administration. 

    Visiting hours Monday, Thursday and Friday are 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Sarturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. Weekend visits are according to an odd/even schedule, based on the last digit of the prisoner's number.  If the number ends in an odd digit that prisoner may have visits only on the odd dated weekend day.

    Academic programming includes Adult Basic Education (ABE), GED preparation and testing, and vocational training in Building Maintenance.  Various religious activities, work assignments, self-improvement programs (i.e., group therapy, group counseling, Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous), and leisure time activities (i.e., recreation programs and prisoner organizations), are also available.  The facility operates as a Drug Treatment Prison, as well as a state-wide Michigan Prisoner Re-entry Initiative program site.

    Routine medical, psychological and dental services are provided on site. Serious medical problems may be treated at either Duane L. Waters Health Center or Foote Hospital, both of which are in Jackson. 


    As a Secure Level I facility, JCS has two high chain-link fences, rolls of razor ribbon wire, a perimeter detection system, and an armed perimeter security vehicle (PSV) patrolling the outside grounds.  There is also an alert response vehicle available for backup to the PSV if necessary.
