The Cambria County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency responsible for operated and managing the Cambria County Prison.
The correctional staff members consist of four part-time jailers, seven full-time jailers, a cook, and a jail sergeant.
The Cambria County Prison was one of the first direct-supervision facilities built in the United States. This paved the way for the next generation of facilities. This facility is often times used as an example for many other governmental agencies who are looking to build new jails.
Most correctional officers are required to release and process inmates, serve inmates their meals that the cook prepares, wash inmates laundry, clean the facility, and supervise the facility throughout the day and night for the protection of the staff and inmates. The correctional officers that work in the Cambria County Prison work more than one job as well.
This facility will house adult male and adult female inmates. The Cambria County Prison is a medium-security detention center. This facility does not house any juveniles. The facility works closely with many law enforcement agencies on a local, state, and federal level.
The Sheriff’s Office main mission is to try and reduce the inmate population by providing them with proactive, yet innovative release programs to help them not re-offend again. Some of these release programs include a court-sponsored pretrial release alongside community-based work programs that are operated through the Cambria County Sheriff’s Office. In 2017, the Cambria County Prison has a daily inmate population around 450.
