More about corrections in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is a commonwealth state with a traditional government structure. A common term used by counties when refering to detention facilities is "prison" rather than "jail" though that seems to be in decline over the last several years. The state also has prisons, penitentiary style, organized and overseen by the PADOC. Units are located all over the state; careful attention should be drawn to the directory titles when choosing because of the naming system mentioned previously.
