There are currently 48 state prisons, geographically grouped into 14 Complexes and two correctional treatment facilities, for state prisoners in the U.S. state of Arizona. This number does not include federal prisons, detention centers for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or county jails located in the state.

As of 2007 Arizona had exported more than 2000 prisoners to privately run facilites in Oklahoma and Indiana, a number that would have been higher if not for a riot of Arizona prisoners at the GEO Group's New Castle Correctional Facility on April 27, 2007, protesting the practice.[1] As of 2013, the states of Vermont, California and Hawaii export prisoners to facilities in Arizona.[2]
