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 offenders will have visitation on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  The times will be 8:30-10:30 and 1:30-3:30.  Visitation will be held in the Support building at the Modular unit.  Outside food will not be allowed and their will be no food, snacks or drinks allowed.  Bags, purses, coin purses and cash mondy are not permitted to enter the facility.  Visitors must successfully satisfy the metal detection and the pat and frisk procedures to visit.  Proper identification for adults and children must be provided.
