Shotts prison was re-built in 2012 and is a facility for long term adult male offenders with a capacity of 538. The prison is situated in countryside south of the M8 motorway near the Lanarkshire village of Shotts. The prison seeks to provide a secure, safe, caring and productive environment, while providing opportunities for offenders to come to terms with their sentences and address their offending behaviour.
Shotts also houses the National Integration Centre (NIC) within its boundary. The NIC holds approximately 60 adult male offenders who are in the initial stages of sentences of eight years or over and prepares them for eventual movement to mainstream prisons. It provides a supportive regime for those sentenced to life or eight years or over during the first six to nine months of their sentences.
