Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center

Opening in 1986, Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center (PICC) was the first PPS facility constructed to operate on the basis of unit management.
All of PICC's 13 housing units are arranged around separate yards, laundry facilities, medical triage areas, counseling rooms, and staff offices, with easy access to classrooms, vocational training areas, law libraries, and chapels. Besides housing most of the System's close custody inmates, PICC has two full housing areas designated as behavioral health transition units. A treatment team consisting of security personnel, city social workers, and behavioral health contract staff work together to prepare inmates with behavioral health issues to ultimately function in general population settings. Today, the Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center (PICC) confines mostly adult males and certified juveniles in segregated areas of PICC. Juveniles are separated by sight and sound from the adult population until they reach the age of majority (18), at which time they are transferred into the general population. Inmates under 18 who are housed at the Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center are required to participate in the Pennypack School House Program. In addition to schooling we offer various elective activities such as Anger Management, Mural Arts, Religious Studies, Creative Writing and Group Therapy. Pennypack high school programs include tutoring, religious study, writing as well as drama and chess clubs.
