I was at Northpoint Training Center on day one, when we first took medium security prisoners on post. I remember my first day at Northpoint.
I was new, and I was at an institution working the graveyard shift without proper light, no fence at all and a dormitory with no locks on the door.
I also remember that we who did not live in Danville were not welcome in Danville.
When I left Northpoint in 2000, it was one of the best, if not the best, correctional institution in the state, and I don't think that any institution anywhere can claim better support from the surrounding communities like we have here in the Danville area. Northpoint routinely scores almost perfect on every inspection.
