District of Columbia Prisons

Structure and Oversight
The primary facility for incarcerating individuals in the District of Columbia is the D.C. Jail, officially known as the Central Detention Facility (CDF). Managed by the D.C. Department of Corrections (DOC), the facility holds detainees awaiting trial, serving misdemeanor sentences, or awaiting transfer to other institutions. For long-term incarceration, D.C. inmates sentenced to more than a year are transferred to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) due to the National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997. This act transferred responsibility for such inmates from D.C. to the BOP, scattering them across various federal prisons nationwide.

The D.C. prison system faces several challenges, including overcrowding, aging facilities, and concerns over inmate treatment and conditions. The D.C. Jail has been criticized for its deteriorating infrastructure and inadequate healthcare services. Moreover, the dispersal of long-term inmates across the country complicates family visitation and legal representation, potentially impacting rehabilitation efforts and community reintegration. Another significant challenge is the lack of autonomy.
