Federal Prisons in New York State Information

Owing to the federal character of the United States' polity, criminal law is a concurrent power. What this means is that the individuals that violate state laws are housed in state prisons and the individuals that violate the federal prisons are incarcerated in federal prisons.

The Federal Prisons are managed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) administered by the US Department of Justice (USDOJ). Persons who are found violating the laws of the District of Columbia are also housed in Federal Prisons due to the enactment of the National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997.
