Bureau of Community Corrections



Parole Violator Center Program

Programa del Centro de Violadores de Libertad Condicional


This bureau is responsible for residential facilities located in various Pennsylvania communities. These facilities, also known as half-way houses, provide a transitional process by allowing residents monitored contact with jobs and educational opportunities. The facilities house State Intermediate Punishment inmates and offenders who have been granted parole by the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole. The department also contracts with private vendors to provide specialized treatment and supervision service, many in the area of substance abuse programming.
