The Everglades Correctional Institution (also ECI) is a Level 5 security prison facility for adult males in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, in the state of Florida, near Miami.[1] Originally planned as a mental health facility, it was converted to a major Correctional institution in 1995.[citation needed]

The Total Staff is 302 (as of July 2012) and has a Maximum Inmate Capacity of 1,788. [2][3]

In 2022, Maverick City Music and Kirk Franklin recorded the album Kingdom Book One at the facility, with 1,300 inmates participating in the recording.[4] The album aimed to spotlight the injustices around mass incarceration in the United States.[5]
