Arizona State Prison Complex – Tucson Additional information:

Work Programs As part of an Intergovernmental Agreement ASPC-Tucson currently has a total of 19 inmate work crews; two work crews are on contract with the Arizona Department of Transportation and work off-site trimming and cleaning debris from the median and sides of roads, another two fire crews spend off season assisting with brush abatement. The work sites cover an area between Tucson, Nogales, Marana and Sells.

Other crews work for the Arizona State Parks Department at the Karchner Caverns located in Benson, Arizona. There are ten crews that work on site, outside of the secure perimeter to maintain the Complex.

In addition to these inmate crews, each unit is allocated a WIPP (Work Incentive Pay Plan) budget based on the number of inmates assigned to the unit. On average over 1900 inmates are paid to work at jobs ranging from labor crews which clean the yard, rake rocks and mow lawns, to semi-skilled and skilled jobs such as clerical, barber and maintenance jobs. Inmates may also work half a day and attend vocational education classes half a day for which they also receive WIPP wages. The Arizona Correctional Industries Sign Shop at ASPC-Tucson employs up to 26 inmates at an average wage of $.65/hour. These inmates reclassified as skilled to highly technical, depending on the job involved. Most positions require a background in computer, silk screen, painting or metal fabrication.

    what happens when someone is put in protective segregation?

    • PrisonPath September 21, 2012 at 1:13 pm #


      Protective segregation or what is more commonly known as protective custody means that an inmate is incarcerated in a special tier locked down in his cell 23 hours every day. The inmate does not have contact with other inmates. He eats, is awake,and sleeps in his cell every day.Depending on the prison, the inmate will spend time by himself in a special, small,outside space for one hour. He will have a few minutes to shower by himself during each week. Protective custody is used for inmates who are in danger from other inmates. It is not unusual for the inmate, who feels that he is in danger, to personally request protective custody. I would also comment that the difference between a protective custody cell and a punishment cell is a very fine line.
