The regions of the Federal Department of Corrections include the Northeast Region, the Mid-Atlantic Region, the Southeast Region, the North Central Region, the South Central Region, and the Western Region. There is also a Central Office of the Federal Department of Corrections located in Washington, DC. Any given region may have a number of different facilities which fall under the jurisdiction of the Federal Department of Corrections. For example, the Mid-Atlantic Region of the Federal Department of Corrections has close to 15 different facilities and/or correctional complexes scattered throughout.There are 115 different institutions currently in operation under the jurisdiction of the Federal Department of Corrections, as well as the 6 regional offices and 28 community corrections offices. The Federal Department of Corrections has jurisdiction over the 209,000 individuals who are within the Federal penal system instead of the State or County penal systems. Individuals may be transferred into the Federal Department of Corrections system from the state system, depending upon the offenses and particular situation of those inmates.
