Two Rivers Correctional Institution

Two Rivers Correctional Institution's (TRCI) is located in Umatilla, Oregon. The groundbreaking occurred on April 5, 1997, and the institution was substantially completed on March 10, 2000. Operation of the housing units was phased in between December 1999 and September 2001, when the last housing unit was occupied, for a total inmate capacity of 1,632.

To lower costs and minimize inmate movements within the prison, it was designed to provide as many services as possible in the housing units. For instance, food trays are delivered to the housing units in heated carts. Outdoor activity yards are attached to each housing unit. Many programs are delivered on the housing units. 

TRCI is designated as an education and work facility for long-term inmates. The focus of its programs is Adult Basic Education and GEDs. Cognitive programs that teach and encourage self-change are also available. Inside work activities include institution maintenance and a commercial laundry. 

The prison provides minimum-custody inmate work crews for community service projects. It also sends crews out daily for other work projects, under contract primarily to government agencies. 

Inmate crews also work on landscaping projects on prison property.
