Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

On the advice of the Bucks County Department of Health and suggestion from the State Department of Corrections, Bucks County’s prisons have closed to most visitors, including volunteers involved in community programs offered at the prison. Any prisoners admitted with cold- or flu-like symptoms will be isolated and the Health Department will be contacted for followup. Only essential vendors and contractors such as food, healthcare and legal professionals will be admitted. 

In an attempt to curb the spread of COVID 19 within the correctional facility and care for those infected, enhanced procedures have been put in place at the direction of the Bucks County Health Department. All offenders and staff have been provided masks in an effort to curb the spread. Increased temperature checks are being completed on staff and inmates. Medical professionals have an increased presence in the facilities, and are seeing offenders more frequently. We are mirroring the best practices of the State Department of Corrections and are in constant contact with the Bucks County Health Department.

We realize that this is distressing to both offenders and their friends and family. To help ease some of the stress the Department of Corrections has provided goods and services to all offenders above what they would normally be provided and at no cost to the offenders or their families.

  • Offenders continue to receive 2 free telephone calls per week.
  • Offenders are receiving additional health, hygiene and comfort items.
  • Offenders are receiving additional  commissary food items.
  • Offenders are receiving $20 worth of subscription services for the offender tablets . These funds can be used for services such as movies, streaming music, ebooks, games, and newsfeeds.

Community Corrections Centers

The Bucks County Department of Corrections operates both a Men’s and Women’s Community Corrections Center. These two centers are community-based, minimum security, work release facilities. The philosophy for minimum custody and work release emphasizes personal accountability and treatment, while offering residents an opportunity to help themselves and their families.

The Men’s Community Corrections Center opened on July 28, 1991; replacing the original Rehabilitation Center opened in 1963 (this was the first stand alone work release facility in the country). The building houses 270 male residents and provides shared treatment programming for both males and females. Shared services offered to male and female residents include; intensive drug and alcohol treatment, adult basic education, case management, community service and work release.

The Men's Medium Custody Center was opened September, 2018 and was built off the Men's Community Corrections Center.

The Women’s Community Corrections Center opened on July 28, 1992 using the old Rehabilitation Center. This building offers 50 beds for female residents. The opening of the Women’s facility offered the same levels of custody services and opportunities as the male population.

The Men’s and Women’s Community Corrections Centers are nationally accredited by the American Correctional Association.
