On June 3, SCI Camp Hill hosted a tour with DOC interns from Central Office. Staff from multiple departments within the institution provided an overview of the inmate assessment process and day-to-day operations of the facility. The tour included a stop on several housing units and a visit with the HOPE dogs, as well as information on the institutional parole process and career opportunities. The interns also had a rare opportunity to attend multiple mental health meetings that involved some discussions of how treatment and security issues are handled, along with various mental health services that are provided to the inmate population. Their insight, observations and questions were refreshing, and the students were very engaged and excited to learn about the role of corrections in the criminal justice system.
