Newsroom

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.

Press/Communications Office Staff

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

Please only email the person who most appropriately can assist you. Duplicate emails can slow down communication.
