During the most recent re-accreditation audit, the Facility received a 100% rating on all mandatory and non-mandatory ACA standards.

Regular inspections of the Facility are conducted by various oversight agencies including the United States Marshals Service, Quality Assurance Reviews and Rhode Island Department of Public Health among others.

Detainees housed within the facility are in the custody of the United States Marshals Service’s various jurisdictions including, but not limited to: Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.
