Potosi Correctional Center

Potosi Correctional Center

Potosi Correctional Center (PCC) is located on 140 acres approximately two miles east of Potosi, Missouri. The first facility in the state to be built under the lease/purchase concept received its first inmates in February 1989. The facility was constructed and currently houses 800 capital punishment, maximum security and high-risk male inmates including those sentenced to death.

The Potosi Center conducted all but one of the 62 Missouri executions between 1989 when capital punishment was reinstated and 2005 when Death Row was moved 25 miles east to the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri.
