The Luther Luckett Correctional Complex is a minimum and medium-security state prison located in Oldham County, near La Grange, Kentucky, about 30 miles northeast of Louisville. It opened in 1981 and had a prison population of 1,073 as of 2007. The Kentucky Correctional Psychiatric Center, which is operated by the Kentucky Health and Family Services Cabinet and is officially a separate facility, is located within the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex and shares several facilities with its host prison.
Due to extreme staffing shortages over the 2015–16 fiscal year, the facility now operates on two 12-hour shifts, five days a week. This has been embraced by some as substantial extra income, and heavily criticized by others due to being away from their families so often, as well as being a major source of mental and physical stress.
The current administration consists of Warden Merv Haddix, Deputy Warden of Security Webb Strang, and Deputy Warden of Programs Jesse Stack. Tim Crutcher is the current Senior Captain. Since Haddix was appointed as warden in August 2015, the prison has made a significant improvement in terms of staff retention and morale.
