Brown Creek Correctional Institution, near Polkton, is a medium security prison for adult males. In 1990, lawmakers provided $16 million for a new 624-bed medium security prison at Brown Creek as part of the $75 million prison construction program authorized in July 1990. The prison received its first inmates July 29, 1993. Another 208-bed dormitory was added as part of the $62.1 million prison construction program authorized in 1994. In February 2008, the inmate population was expanded by 64 inmates for a total inmate population of 916 inmates at Brown Creek.

The mission of Brown Creek Correctional Institution is to protect the community, its employees, inmates and assigned property through the progressive supervision of inmates. The facility provides a safe an humane working/living environment where jobs and programs are provided for inmates to prepare them for successful transition into society.

The prison has eight housing units, each with four dormitories and support buildings that include a 20-cell segregation unit, administration building, operation center, dining hall, program building, recreation building and education and vocational classes.

The prison has a clinic that provides medical care for inmates of Brown Creek and dental care for Brown Creek and Anson Correctional Center.

Inmates at the prison may be assigned to work on a Department of Transportation road crew, or as maintenance, janitorial or kitchen help at the prison. Correction Enterprise opened a metal products plant in the Fall of 1994. The plant employs 84 inmates who make metal products for any tax supported agency such as prisons, universities and the public school system.

South Piedmont Community College works with the prison to provide classes in mechanical engineering, information systems, business administration, electrical installation, carpentry, masonry and horticulture. Classes for adult basic education, GED test preparation and English as a second language are also available.

The facility offers a new Leash on Life program which is partnership with the Humane Society aimed at reducing the homeless population of dogs in North Carolina and promote adoption of unwanted animals. Correctional employees at BCCI and volunteers are dedicated to helping offenders become productive members of society. A new Leash on Life is one of the ways we endeavor to fulfill this mission.
