The Story of Donald Price, a Security Officer at the Adult Correctional Institute in Cranston,RI

A little after 12:30 a.m. on June 22, 1973, Donald was on duty guarding a
dormitory of prisoners. Along with an accomplice, one of the prisoners
stepped out and stabbed Donald nine times with a sharpened table knife.
Donald managed to place a distress call and security guards were there to
assist him within minutes. But it was too late, as Donald succumbed of his
wounds shortly thereafter.

Donald Price was a prison guard. More importantly, he was a loving husband
and father. He paid the ultimate price to serve and protect, which we are
forever grateful for. He will never be lost or forgotten.

The Donald Price Medium Security Facility

In 1929 construction began on a facility designed and used to house young offenders. It was operational from 1932 through 1992, when it first closed
due to the construction of a more modern facility (named after John J. Moran). The 1932 facility did reopen however in 1997 and was formally named
the Donald Price Medium Security Facility. Unfortunately, due to state budget constraints the Donald Price Medium Security Facility closed once
more in 2011 and remains so to this day.
