The Press and Communications Office is responsible for responding to news media requests for information about department policies, procedures, programs, employees and the inmates it incarcerates. Each facility has a public information officer (PIO). Reporters who have questions regarding a specific facility are encouraged to contact the appropriate facility PIO directly under the SCI PIOs list.

NOTE to Family and Friends of Inmates: This is NOT the office to call if you have an inmate issue. Please contact the appropriate state prison or regional deputy secretary's office.
