The Forest County Jail is in Tionesta, Pennsylvania. The Forest County Jail is operated and managed by the Forest County Sheriff’s Office. The facility opened its doors back in 1986 with a total of 102 beds available for inmates.
The facility can now hold up to 154 inmates at any given time. It wasn’t until 2007 where the daily population was brought up to 92 inmates. In 2018, the Forest County Jail underwent a big expansion project.
An inmate will have the chance to purchase food among other special treats. The Forest County Jail has a commissary. Even though they supply the inmates with their necessary items, if an inmate wishes to purchase something that the facility does not give them, they can do so here. The commissary is offered in the facility twice a week.
Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years. The Forest County Jail accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns.
These positions will allow inmates to work outside the facility (under supervision of a correctional officer) to clean roadsides from litter, while also helping non-profits, alongside other various government agencies. Inmates who become a trusted inmate can have the opportunity to be a part of the road crew team.
All violent and out of control inmates will be separated from the general population inmates to keep the peace inside the facility.
Inmates are released when they post bail, placed under probation, or on their own recognizance. While new inmates are coming in, there are also inmates leaving as well.
