The Mayo Correctional Institution Annex is a state prison for men located in Mayo, Lafayette County, Florida.[1] This facility was opened in 1984 and has a maximum capacity of 1345 prisoners.

The original Mayo Correctional Institution on the same property held 1668 prisoners [2] and was closed by the state in 2012. On June 26, 2019 two inmates were alleged to have attacked a correctional officer with improvised weapons. While responding to the assault, staff reported that another inmate may have been killed in a separate part of the institution. The officer who was allegedly attacked was expected to survive. The officer who was attacked did survive and in January of 2021 was attacked by a different inmate suffering several stab wounds again. He also survived this incident.[3]
