York County Prison Health and Safety Plan

**UPDATE 12/9/2021** The prison-wide lockdown has been modified. In-person visits and non-essential travel will resume on Friday, December 10th for residents in "clean" (COVID-recovered or areas with no positive rest results) housing areas. We are working with our telephone provider to update their website in order to schedule in-person visits. If you are unsure if your loved-one is in a "clean" unit and can have a visit, you may call the prison and speak to a staff member in the Records Department. Due to high call volume, there may be a wait time. In most cases, your loved-one can tell you via message or phone call if they are eligible for a visit.    





1. Visitors must be pre-approved and on an active visiting list provided by the inmate.

2. Visitors must log onto  https://yorkcountypa.gtlvisitme.com/ to schedule a visit.

3. Visits may be scheduled 7 days in advance, but no later than 24 hours before the proposed visit.

4.  Only one housing unit is permitted to utilize the visitation area at any given time. Each housing unit has a corresponding visitation schedule, and the available scheduling blocks will be posted.

5. All visitors are required to wear a mask while inside the facility. We are excited to reunite friends, family, and loved ones, but we must go about this in a safe manner. Those who refuse to wear a mask will be asked to leave and the visit will be terminated.  



Welcome to the York County Prison’s website.

The mission of York County Prison is to maintain a safe, secure environment for a diverse population of incarcerated individuals, staff and visitors. We are dedicated to implementing innovative methods of security and working with our community partners to provide quality education and evidenced-based treatment programs to increase the probability of successful community re-entry.

Inmates may be pretrial detainees awaiting trial or those already sentenced by the Court of Common Pleas. The prison also houses federal immigration detainees in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The facility has a maximum of 2400 beds and a maximum of 276 beds for the Work Release Center. All male and female Work Release Inmates are located at 3403 Concord Road, York PA 17402.  This building is directy accross the street from the main prison. Please note that Female Work Release inmates were recently moved to this building.  Employers may contact the Officer's Desk at 717-840-7593 with scheduling changes or questions.

The Inmate Rules and Policies section contains information regarding inmate funds, use of the telephone systems and policies regarding mail and personal property.

The Visitation section provides information for individuals wishing to meet with inmates incarcerated at the prison. There are general rules and regulations, as well as specific regulations and policies for children, adults, attorneys and other officials. Due to recently added security measures, no paperwork may be hand-delivered to an inmate/detainee during a regular vist. This includes any paperwork needed for signatures, checks, etc.  These documents must be mailed into the prison.  Official visitors such as law enforment and attorneys are still permitted to bring in necessary paperwork during their official visit.
