In November 2021, Lancaster County Prison was inspected by the DOC under Title37, Chapter 95 standards.
There are many areas reviewed including housing, classification and security procedures.
Lancaster County Prison was in compliance with all sections.
The in-depth inspection includes policy review and face to face interviews with both staff and inmates. All areas of the facility are toured and inspected for safety and sanitation. It covers security, treatment, education, medical services and food service operations.
We are proud to report that our compliance carries us through to our next scheduled inspection in 2023.
