Western Missouri Correctional Center (WMCC) is a Missouri Department of Corrections state prison for men located in Cameron, DeKalb County, Missouri. (The town of Cameron straddles DeKalb and Clinton Counties.) [1] According to the Official Manual State of Missouri the facility has a capacity of 1925[2] medium security prisoners.

The facility opened in 1988 and is immediately adjacent to the Crossroads Correctional Center (CRCC), a maximum security facility for men which opened in 1997.[3] Crossroads was closed in July 2019 and one side of WMCC was converted into a maximum security prison, receiving many of those formerly held at CRCC.[4]
