Warren Correctional Institution is a multi-custody prison facility housing male inmates in close, medium and minimum custody environments.

The largest inmate population at Warren CI consists of about 576 medium-custody inmates. A 168-single cell building houses intensive control medium and close-custody inmates. The facility also houses approximately 88 minimum-custody inmates.

The opening of Warren Correctional Institution in 1997 permitted the consolidation of five smaller prisons in surrounding counties.

On August 18, 1997, the prison received its first medium custody inmates. The 168-single cell building opened May 18, 1998. In August of 1999 the two modular dormitories opened housing approximately 88 minimum custody inmates. Another 168-single cell building was completed in August of 2004.

A new janitorial products plant for Correction Enterprises is currently under construction at Warren Correctional Institution. When complete, Correction Enterprises will relocate its janitorial products plant, which produces soap and industrial cleaning products, from Harnett Correctional Institution in Lillington. The new plant is being constructed by inmates participating in the Inmate Construction Program, working under the supervision of engineers from the DOC Central Engineering section.
