Downeast Correctional Facility

Downeast Correctional Facility (DCF), located at the former Bucks Harbor Air Force Station, was established by the Legislature in September 1984. After an extensive renovation, this new 48-bed pre-release/minimum security facility officially opened in January of 2022 on the grounds of the previous Downeast Correctional Facility. DCF can house up to 48 men who are participating in MDOC’s pre-release program, which allows them to work in the community and contribute to the local economy.

DCF is associated with the Mountain View Correctional Facility in Charleston.
