In Centre County there is no more room at the County Jail. The prison population is at record numbers and now the County has to transfer out some inmates who were brought in from other counties. The Centre County prison population is at numbers that have not been seen before. One major change is the policy for inmates who are able to get out on work release or alternative sentencing problems. But those options are limited now to changing policies for work release. Housing state and out of county inmates provides Centre County with several hundred thousand dollars a year in revenue but dealing with the space available is top priority. Included in the prison population are fifty one female inmates.
