Facility Information

The mission of DuQuoin Structured Impact Program as a minimum security facility is to provide for the protection of the public through the humane and secure incarceration of adult male offenders based upon the foundation of legislative and judicial decisions. The institution's administration is committed toward instilling responsibility and mature decision making in its offenders by providing extensive and high-quality educational programs, work assignment opportunities, vigorous physical training, and religious avenues. The goal of the facility is to go far beyond the minimum necessities of food, sanitation, clothing, housing, and medical services to the offenders of the facility. The administration and staff of the facility strive to maintain a clean and safe environment for the offender population, encouraging a positive adjustment while acquiring employment skills and educational advancements that will lend to rehabilitation and reduced recidivism. Security measures are maintained to a strict degree to further ensure the safety of the community, offenders, and staff. New reentry programming has been established to further encourage the successful transition of its offenders as productive citizens within communities through structured programming.

The DuQuoin Structured Impact Program is a short term, paramilitary style rehabilitation program which houses 200 offenders. Du Quoin SIP functions as a bootcamp, whereby eligible offenders approved by the sentencing court and accepted by the department, shall upon successful completion of the program requirements have their sentences reduced to time served between 120-180 active days. Upon successful completion, the offender shall serve a term of mandatory supervised release.

The center is comprised of four buildings which include the Administration, Multi-Purpose, Dormitory, and Maintenance buildings contained on eight acres of land. The facility is encircled by a one-third mile running track with a 14,000 sq. foot outside exercise area.
