Sen Stefano issues Statement on Leadership Changes at SCI Somerset and Laurel Highlands

“I hope this is the first in several steps aimed at making SCI Somerset, and all of our correctional facilities, a safe place for our corrections officers to work. 

I am hopeful with new leadership taking a fresh look at the policies and procedures in place that our corrections officers can be given the tools necessary to do their job in a safe and effective manner. 

This cannot be just a cosmetic change but part of a systemic change in how we manage our corrections institutions.

I encourage the new Superintendents to listen to those in harms way and take their feedback and suggestions seriously.“


-Senator Pat Stefano
