ABOUT COASTAL STATE PRISON: Coastal State Prison is a medium security facility generated toward assisting offenders with the opportunity of positive change. We also protect the public as certified peace officers for the State of Georgia. Being apart of a common goal as correctional officers, we are given the opportunity to give back to the citizens of Georgia. The prison is considered special mission because of the programs the state provides for offenders: RSAT-Residential Substance Abuse Treatment, IRP- Intensive Re-entry Program, GED- Diploma Program, SOPP-Sex Offender Prevention, OJT-On the Job Training and many more. With such programs, offenders have the opportunity to become productive citizens at the end of their sentence. If all needs are met they also have the chance to parole with an early release.
