The Omaha Correctional Center (OCC) is a medium/minimum security facility located on a 37-acre site in East Omaha, just south of Eppley Airfield. The OCC was opened April 24, 1984 with a designed capacity of 240 inmates at a total cost of approximately $17 million; today the facility has an operational capacity of 712 inmates in single, double, and multiple occupancy rooms. In 1994 an additional housing unit brought the designed capacity of the OCC to 396 inmate beds.
The center has a separate entrance building as well as an inner complex including an indoor/outdoor visiting area, a library, a chapel, dental and medical area, segregation unit, academic and pre-employment training areas, central physical plant, laundry, kitchen and dining room, Cornhusker State Industries, canteen and a gymnasium.
OCC has been accredited by the American Correctional Association since 1986.
Inmates at the facility are afforded educational opportunities. The facility attempts to meet the emotional and spiritual needs of the inmates through the programs and services of the religious activities.
Through programming, the facility has been able to reduce inmate idleness. Treatment programming is always at capacity due to the sizable number of drug and sex offenders at the Omaha Correctional Center. The Omaha Correctional Center hosts the Substance Abuse Unit for Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Services as well as a Non-Residential Services program.
The facility is always looking for committed citizens that have an interest in helping our inmates as volunteers. Volunteers are a vital part of our restorative programming.
