The mission of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is to protect society by confining offenders in the controlled environments of prison and community-based facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and that provide work and other self-improvement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens. 

To accommodate a portion of the federal inmate population, the BOP is moving forward with planning for a new Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) and prison camp in Letcher County, Kentucky. Among the objectives for developing a new FCI and prison camp is to meet the on-going need for modern federal correctional facilities and infrastructure as well as to address an identified need for a new FCI and prison camp in the BOP’s Mid-Atlantic Region of the country.
