County Department of Corrections-Visitation and Mail Suspension

Visitation and Mail Suspended as Precautionary Measure Effective August 30, 2018.  

All non-legal visits and mail to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections are suspended as a precautionary measure, due to drug exposures in Ohio and Pennsylvania correctional facilities this week where staff and inmates exhibited signs of opioid exposure.

There have been no such incidents reported in Maryland. The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services suspended all Maryland prison visits. The Prince George’s County Department of Corrections is taking similar precautionary measures by suspending visitation and not opening or distributing inmate mail while these incidents are monitored. All legal visits and mail will follow normal procedures.

Any update to the suspension will be publicized.
