Red Eagle Community Work Center

The Red Eagle Community Work Center is a minimum-security facility located in Montgomery, Alabama, that is operated by the Alabama Department of Corrections. This work center opened in 1972 and sits on 364 acres. 

This facility houses a maximum of 233 male inmates who are nearing the end of their sentence. The community work center is a transitional facility that allows inmates to work outside of the facility and in the community during the day.

The inmates at Red Eagle are classified as, "minimum-out," which means they can be assigned to off-property work details without the direct supervision of correctional officers. Minimum-Out inmates are generally assigned to Community Work Centers, with higher security facilities maintaining a small number of job assignments that require minimal supervision.

The mission of the Red Eagle Community Work Center is to provide suitable surroundings, work programs, and staff to help the inmates reintegrate into society. The staff strives to be one of the best qualified of any institution in the state.
