Dear Family & Friends of Inmates,
The Department of Corrections announces that it will change inmate telephone service providers from GTL to Securus Technologies.  This change, which reduces the cost of all calls to .059 (or almost 6 cents) per minute, will take place several institutions at a time beginning in the late evening hours of Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014.  All state prisons will be changed over by early morning on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014.  During this period (Dec. 7 - 10), inmates only will be able to make collect and prepay (family and friends prepaid account) calls.  We apologize for this inconvenience, but we are providing you with this information now so that you can begin setting up your accounts with Securus. 
GO HERE to learn how to set up accounts with Securus and/or how to seek a refund from GTL.

We have posted information on the "Visiting Days - Times" page and on the specific prison pages (Muncy and Fayette so far).  Also, inmates have been notified of any expanded visiting
opportunities at their specific prisons and can help visitors determine which day to visit.
