Northern Nevada Correctional Center and Stewart Conservation Camp are part of a prison complex located in Carson City. The correctional center was established in 1964 and is managed by the Nevada Department of Corrections. The medium security center housed 1,444 male and 9 female inmates as of September 2010. It is designed with a capacity for 1,619 inmates and employs a staff of 373 as of 2008.The adjacent Stewart Conservation Camp was opened in 1978 and is designed for 240 minimum security inmates who support the Nevada Division of Forestry with wildfire suppression and conservation efforts. The camp housed 328 male inmates and was budgeted for a total capacity of 350 as of September 2010.HistoryNevada State Prison (NSP), also in Carson City, which was the only state penitentiary for many decades, underwent expansion in the early 1960s. The result was a second facility in Carson City that would become known as Northern Nevada Correctional Center (NNCC). The correctional center was opened in 1964 with three housing units. An interesting fact is that the Correctional Center was to operate as a treatment center rather than a traditional lockdown facility. Staff members did not wear uniforms, instead wearing casual attire the staff interacted closely with inmates. Inmates addressed staff by their first names. This was an experiment in corrections that had never been done in Nevada. In contrast to Nevadas only other prison, Nevada State Prison, NNCC was created to treat the inmates underlying problems that lead to incarceration. Emphasis was placed on drug and alcohol treatment, education and restoring family ties. This was evident by the lounge style visiting room and dedicated education building, both are still in use today. By 2008, seven additional units were constructed.
