Classification, Movement & Registration (CMR)
General Information numbers are 215-685-8394 and 215-685-8395.
The C.M.R. Division, which is under the office of Deputy Commissioner Robert Tomaszewski, has many units working together to not only safely admit and discharge inmates, but to assists in controlling the inmate population as well. C.M.R. is the first step when taking inmates into P.P.S. custody. The process is an ongoing one, starting from admission at the “window” to any kind of release (bail, bench warrant withdrawn, parole, court order, special releases, completion of sentences, etc.) There are approximately 65 officers working in C.M.R., working on all three shifts. Each staff member has a big role in C.M.R. by responding to a variety of situations that the PPS facilities encounter.
Note: When an inmate gets release from P.P.S. custody, he or she receives an Incarceration Letter:
Incarceration letters are given to each inmate at the time of their discharge. If an inmate is released from court, or it is lost, he/she can obtain an incarceration letter from the cashier’s office from the institution in which they were housed. All the inmate has to do is provide their PID# to the Cashiers, and if their face matches the face on the computer, the letter will be provided immediately. This procedure should be followed primarily whenever possible to prevent identity theft.
