Prison


The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections manages 25 state correctional institutions and a number of other correctional facilities in Pennsylvania. These facilities house just over 50,000 inmates. The Department receives inmates from County jail systems following a conviction, though people are also admitted as the result of a parole violation. Inmates convicted of more-serious crimes or those receiving longer sentences are typically transferred to Pennsylvania’s prison system.
