Southern State Correctional Facility is located on 77 acres in southern Cumberland County, adjacent to Bayside State Prison. Construction of the facility marked a new concept for the state in two areas. Its entire construction consists of prefabricated units, and all inmates are housed in dormitory style units instead of in individual cells. There are several support buildings within the security perimeter that house various departments such as social services, education, vocational shops, religious services, medical, dental, and psychological services. These departments provide the inmate population with a wide variety of programming, educational and rehabilitative services.

    I was wondering if inmates on the “outside of the prison,” which i am assuming is the minnimum unit, are allowed 2 visits in one day and can it be with the same person?

      Hi Victoria,

      I do not have that information. I would recommend contacting directly the facility.

    hello my name is Jennifer Alford. today me my son and my mother in law went to see my husband Benjamin Alford. during the visit me and my husband were holding hands and i believe our chairs were to close. they terminated our visits stating that our visit was banned because possibly his hands were down my pants. it is impossible i was sitting next to my mother in law and my son was there plus there was so many c.o’s there walking around so how is that even possible! the Sargent informed me that she didn’t even see the video so if that’s the case why are my visits being banned! i understand that are chairs were close but we were not touching inappropriate. i need to know who do i need to speak to weather its the warden or somebody in charge!

      Hi Jennifer,

      I would recommend contacting the warden’s office about the process for appealing the decision. If no help is given, contact the chaplain for assistance.
