The Macomb Correctional Facility sits on a 100-acre site. It comprises 11 major buildings and two minor buildings, totaling about 300,000 square feet. The prison contains four Level II housing units, two Level IV units and one Level I building outside the security perimeter. Four other buildings house a school, the administration offices, support services and storage.



Educational programming includes Special Education, General Education Development preparation, Adult Basic Education and vocational classes.

Facility staff work closely with community groups and encourage community volunteer participation.


Routine health and dental care are provided on site. Major emergencies are treated in a community hospital or at the Duane L. Waters Health Center in Jackson. A Residential Treatment program is provided for inmates needing a residential  setting for Mental Health treatment.


The perimeter of the prison is enclosed by double, 12-foot galvanized chain link fences topped with coiled stainless steel razor-ribbon wire. The wire is also in the space between the two fences to enhance the barrier. A third, 12-foot galvanized chain link fence, topped with stainless steel razor-ribbon wire provides a buffer between the facility property lines and the perimeter road. An electronic detection system is in use on the inner perimeter and the buffer fences. The prison's security was further enhanced in 1997 by the addition of two gun towers. An armed officer in an alert response vehicle provides checks of perimeter zone brakes.
