Hyde Correctional Institution is a medium/minimum security prison for adult males. The prison was built as part of the $87.5 million prison construction program authorized by the legislature in 1993.

The design of the prison reflects improvements to the plans used in construction of the Lumberton Correctional Institution. By using prototype designs in this fashion, the department builds facilities with similar mechanical, electric and security systems.

Hyde Correctional Institution consists of three dormitories linked to a common circulation corridor. A single building provides food service, medical service, visitation areas, maintenance, programs, administrative space and a 20-bed segregation unit.

In 1999, a minimum custody satellite unit was added. Minimum custody inmates were moved into the satellite unit and housed in two modular buildings.

Hyde mans four medium custody road squad vans that service Hyde, Tyrrell, Beaufort, Martin and Washington counties.


Hyde offers visitation by appointment only. Visitation is Thursday - Saturday for medium custody from 9 - 11 a.m. or 2 - 4 p.m.

Minimum custody will have visitation on Sunday's and Mondays from 8-10 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. instead of having visitation on Saturday.

They will report directly to the Minimum Custody unit. They will have 10 spots available for the morning and 10 spots for the afternoon.

No food will be allowed.

The Officer in Charge will make the determination whether visitation will be held outside or inside, depending on weather conditions.

There are no visitation appointments scheduled, or add-ons to previously scheduled appointments, on Fridays.

Visitation appointments can be made up up 14 days in advance, but not less than 48 hours in advance. It will be the visitor's responsibility to ensure appointments are made in a timely manner. All visitors must have an approved application to visit, and must be on the inmate's visitation list. All ID cards must be current. Faxing applications and updated ID cards are not accepted.
