LILLINGTON – Carlton Joyner is the new superintendent at Harnett Correctional Institution.

The facility houses 850 medium-custody male inmates, and it employs 385 officers and administrative staff members. It offers a wide range of educational and vocational programs for inmates. It is home to the state’s only in-prison treatment program for sex offenders and a newly opened school that teaches inmates to become barbers.   Correction Enterprises operates a plant at Harnett CI to process meat and frozen foods for the state’s prisons.
