VISITATION TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

To prevent the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), prison visitation was suspended as of Monday, March 16, 2020. The health and safety of employees and offenders in our care are the top priorities of the Department of Public Safety. THIS IS NOT A STATEWIDE LOCKDOWN OF PRISONS. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have on offender families and friends. Visitation will resume when conditions are deemed safe.

Sending Mail to Offenders

All Prison facilities encourage family and friends to write to offenders. For security reasons, all incoming mail is checked to see if it contains any illegal or unauthorized items. Outgoing mail from offenders may also be checked. Personal letters will not be read unless the officer-in-charge or designee has reason to believe the letter contains threats of harm or criminal activity, escape plans, or plans to violate prison rules. If the officer-in-charge decides to delay or not deliver the letter to the offender, the offender will be told in writing the reason for this action.

Incoming mail from lawyers, any legal aid service assisting offenders, and state and federal court officials must be opened in the presence of the offender before it is checked for illegal or unauthorized items. 

Letters to an offender must include the offender’s prison ID number, which is often referred to as the OPUS number. The letter should be addressed in this format:

Offender Name and OPUS Number
Prison Name
Prison Street Address or Post Office Box number
City, State and zip code of the prison location

Example: John Smith #1234567
Randolph Correctional Center
Box 4128
Asheboro, NC 27204

Overview

Randolph Correctional Center, near Asheboro, is a minimum security prison for adult males.

The prison has a dental clinic that serves offenders located within facilities located in the South Central, Central and Western Regions. It also has 68 beds designated as Long Term Care. The Long Term Care offenders are not ready to be housed in the general population because of medical problems.

Randolph Community College works with the prison to provide adult education and preparation for GED test.

Offenders may be assigned to work on regional maintenance, maintenance, librarian, recreation clerk, barber, canteen operator, clothes house or kitchen help at the prison.

Randolph was one of 51 county prisons for which the state assumed responsibility with the passage of the Conner Bill in 1931. It was one of 61 field unit prisons renovated or built during the late 1930s to house offenders who worked building roads.

The original prison dormitory continues to house offenders. In 1986, offenders under the supervision of correctional engineers erected a recreation building.

The General Assembly provided for a 104-bed dormitory as part of the $28.5 million Emergency Prison Facilities Development program authorized in 1987. The dormitory and recreational building were opened in 1988.
