History

The facility is unique in that it actually houses two separate institutions. The Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center operated by the Kentucky Human Resources Cabinet. The two facilities share a number of resources and operate under a written shared services agreement. The first inmates were received at Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in March 1981. Although the institution was designed to house 486, with double bunking in 1990, the operational capacity was raised to 995. In February 2002 the addition of 104 daybeds to Units 7A, 7B and 7C increased the operational capacity to 1,099.
