This Week, June 5th, Arcola Adduci Warden of Alabama’s Newest Prison

Posted By rotary


Statistics for the prison population in the Unites States are arresting. From 1920 to 2006, while the U.S. population grew almost 3 times, the prison population grew 20 times. The challenge of managing that kind of growth falls primarily on prison officials, and especially on wardens. This week, Tuscaloosa Rotarians will learn more about those challenges first hand. Arcola Adduci, warden of Alabama’s newest federal prison in Aliceville, will speak to the club.



Aducci rose through the ranks of the federal Bureau of Prisons along a traditional path: from correctional officer to lieutenant, to unit manager, captain and camp administrator to assistant warden. She then assumed her role as warden of the Aliceville in March.


Aliceville’s facility is a new minimum and medium-security prison for female inmates. Arducci has said that it will employ about 314 people, including 145 correctional officers, eight executive officers, 18 financial officers and 10 educators, among others.


The first inmates should arrive at Aliceville in August or September, beginning with a small number of minimum security inmates. Medium-security inmates will come to the prison somewhat later, most likely at the end of 2012 or in early 2013.


Aducci graduated from Marengo High School in Dixon Mills, Alabama in 1977. She has 26 years of experience with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.
