Facility Information

The Graham Reception & Classification unit is an adult male intake and processing unit, responsible for orientating offenders newly admitted to the Illinois Department of Corrections from certain committing counties to the department.

Offenders admitted to the Graham R&C are in reception status. They remain in reception status until they are transferred to a permanent institution. Privileges and movement are limited at the reception center. The average length of stay is 3 weeks to 2 months; however, it may be longer due to court writ, medical hold, bed space availability, an early release date, or other considerations.
