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.
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
