Administrative United States Penitentiary, Thomson (AUSP Thomson), formerly Thomson Correctional Center, is a maximum security Federal prison located in Thomson, Illinois. It has an area of about 146 acres (59 ha) and comprises 15 buildings. The facility is enclosed by a 15-foot (4.6 m), 7000 volt electric fence surrounded by an additional 12-foot (3.7 m) exterior fence covered with razor wire. Thomson has eight cellhouses with a rated capacity of 2,100 beds—1,900 high-security SMU beds and 200 minimum-security beds at the onsite camp—and according to BOP officials, the potential to use some of its high-security rated capacity to house up to 400 ADX inmates. However, from its completion in 2001 to 2006, it sat empty. By 2009, only the minimum-security section houses prisoners.In October 2012, the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) purchased Thomson Correctional Center (TCC) from the State of Illinois for $165 million. Plans to transfer inmates from Guantanamo Bay to the facility had already been blocked by Congress.
In August 2014, Donald Hudson was named the first warden of the prison. As of 2016, Thompson Correctional Center holds 117 inmates and employs around 250 correctional officers. Both numbers are expected to rise in coming years as planned activation of the facility ongoing.
