The Federal Prison Camp, Duluth (FPC Duluth) is a minimum-security United States federal prison located in Minnesota for male offenders. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.
FPC Duluth is located on the former Duluth Air Force Base near the southwestern tip of Lake Superior, halfway between Minneapolis-St. Paul and the Canada–United States border, and seven miles north of Duluth.
On March 29, 2011, a reporter from a CBS affiliate station in Minnesota interviewed Denny Hecker, an inmate at FPC Duluth. Hecker, who made millions of dollars as the owner of car dealerships, is serving a 10-year sentence after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud in 2010. The reporter, Esme Murphy, described the interview:
Hecker has since been transferred to the Federal Correctional Institution, Loretto, a low-security facility in Pennsylvania with an adjacent minimum-security satellite prison camp.
