The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI Greenville) is a medium-security United States federal prison for male offenders in Illinois. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the Department of Justice. The facility also includes an adjacent satellite prison camp for minimum-security female offenders.

FCI Greenville is located approximately 43 miles east of St. Louis, Missouri, and 63 miles from Springfield, Illinois.[1]

Notable incidents[edit source | edit]

In 2001, David Mack, a central figure in the LAPD Rampart Scandal, was attacked by a group of fellow inmates while jogging in the prison recreation yard at FCI Greenville. The Bureau of Prisons and the FBI refused to confirm that the attack occurred, but Mack's attorney reported that the inmates were gang members who attacked Mack after they saw a television program and read press accounts that detailed Mack's role in stealing from gang members and his connection with fellow officer Rafael Perez, another central figure in the scandal. Mack was admitted to a local hospital and was treated for multiple stab wounds and a punctured lung. He was released two days later and returned to the general population.[2]
