FCI Elkton Challenge Coin
Federal Correctional Institution Elkton is a low-security federal prison located in Lisbon, Ohio. It is also known as FCI Elkton. Federal Satellite Low Elkton is adjacent to the main institution. Both federal prisons house male inmates. It’s a part of the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons, which is a myriad of inmate programs to address criminogenic needs such as those related to substance abuse, education, employment, and more, thereby ensuring inmates’ successful transition to the community.
The Bureau of Prisons was established within the Department of Justice on May 14, 1930, by the United States Congress, and was charged with the “management and regulation of all Federal penal and correctional institutions.” This responsibility covered the administration of the 11 federal prisons in operation at the time. By the end of 1930, the system had expanded to 14 institutions with 13,000 inmates, and a decade later in 1940, the system had 24 institutions with 24,360 incarcerated.
The custom challenge coin that they ordered from us was to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Elkton FCI and FSL. The main difference between the two is that the FCI is a low-security prison, while the FSL is a minimum security “camp”. It’s an elegant coin with the shape of the number ’20’, with a shiny brushed metal finish.
