Arizona State Prison Complex – Perryville is one of 13 prison facilities operated by the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC). ASPC-Perryville is located in Goodyear, Maricopa County, Arizona, 23 miles west from the state capital of Phoenix, Arizona.

In 1981 three units of the Perryville Complex, San Pedro, Santa Cruz, and San Juan, for minimum and medium custody male inmates was opened. In May 1982, Santa Maria Unit, for all custody levels of female inmates, began admitting inmates. ASPC-Perryville was converted to an all female facility in 2000. ASP-Yuma, a 250-bed adult male prison which opened in 1987 became a part of the Perryville Complex in October 1992 until November 1995 when it became its own prison complex Arizona State Prison Complex – Yuma. Four of the housing units at ASPC-Perryville are named after Brent W. Lumley ADC correctional officer who was killed in the line of duty.

The ADC uses a score classification system to assess inmates appropriate custody and security level placement. The scores range from 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest risk or need.
