The Greene County Work Camp is a prison for male inmates located in Jacksonville, Illinois. Run by the Illinois Department of Corrections, the Greene County Work Camp used to be the Greene County Impact Incarceration Program, which is a military-style boot camp that originally opened in March 1993 and closed in October 2002.
In February 2004, the facility reopened as a work camp equipped to house up to 200 offenders who must meet stringent criteria. In June 2013, the Greene County Impact Incarceration Program reopened in accepting inmates into the boot camp program while the operations of the work camp there closed in July 2013. In June 2014, the Greene County Impact Incarceration Program was closed and reopened as a work camp.
The parent facility of the Greene County Work Camp is Jacksonville Correctional Center, and the current population in the work camp is 125.

You must be on your inmate’s approved visitation list in order to be granted a visit. The inmate is responsible for arranging their visits and notifying their visitors of their visiting status.
To check if you are on the offender’s visitor list, you should write a letter to your inmate because staff can’t tell you whether or not you are on an offender’s visitation list when you call the facility.
All adult visitors, age 18 and over, must complete a Prospective Visitor's Interview (PVI) form on their first visit to Greene County Work Camp. This PVI form can be completed in advance and brought in on the first visit.
Visitors must submit to a body search by officers at the Visitor Center. If you are intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you will not be allowed to visit.

"Contraband" means items which are prohibited by criminal law, departmental or facility rules or posted notices. They are items which an offender has no authority to possessㅡproperty which is in excess of that which is authorized by the facility.
All persons, vehicles, and items brought onto State property are subject to search. Failure to submit to a search will result in denial, suspension, or restriction of visiting privileges.

The visiting rooms at the facilities offer a variety of products for purchase in vending machines provided by outside vendors.
Vending machine items may only be purchased using a debit card. Visitors may purchase a debit card at the facility, normally at the gatehouse. The price of the debit card will vary by facility depending upon the vendor providing the service.
Any vending items purchased must be consumed during the visit and may not be carried out of the visiting room.
