The Ryan Correctional Facility is located on
the east side of Detroit on 39 acres, off Ryan Road. The land was previously
used by Daimler Chrysler AG to store cars.
The facility contains buildings for housing, educational and vocational
instruction, food services, a health clinic, dialysis unit, administrative
offices, storage and security. The prison has a small segregation unit and is separated from the surrounding area
by a six-foot landscaped berm with evergreen and deciduous trees.
The institution's academic program provides
for special and remedial education as well as General Education Development
completion for all prisoners, including those in segregation. Vocational
training includes an on-the-job training program for porters and food service.
The food service class serves meals as part of the training. About 200 community
volunteers help staff in providing prisoners with faith-based programming.
Health care is provided at the prison, at the Duane L. Waters Hospital in
Jackson or at local hospitals in the event of emergencies. A dialysis unit
was opened in March 1995, serving approximately 44 offenders.
Security is provided by two 12-foot fences,
electronic detection systems, razor-ribbon wire, gun towers and buffer fencing.
