Elmore Correctional Facility is a prison for men in Elmore, Alabama. It is a medium-security prison. This prison opened in 1981 and has been running well for the past 39 years. It has the ability of housing a maximum of 1176 inmates. However, overcapacity and being understaffed is how one can define the whole Elmore Correctional Facility history.
There have been many acts of violence and murder in the past in this prison and that's why it is referred to as "Hellmore" by some people. On 25 March 2016, an Elmore inmate stabbed another prisoner Johnny Lee Spears. More stabbings occurred in the later months. There once was a time when the prison was 200% filled with just 72 of 169 guard positions on work. This prison sets a perfect example of overcapacity and critically understaffed at the same time.
