For security and risk reasons, the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC) carefully considers an offender’s housing location in regards to proximity to their county of conviction and release plan. An offender may work with their Counselor at their present location to request a transfer closer to home. If the offender’s request is approved within the facility, the request will be forwarded to GDC’s Offender Administration for review and action.
If you have a concern about the proximity of an offender’s location, you may contact the Georgia Department of Corrections Offender Administration at 770-504-7312. If you have a concern about an offender housed at the Athens-Clarke County Corrections Institution, please contact the facility at 706-613-3400.
