Springfield, VT Southern State Correctional Facility (SSCF) View

SSCF is a Central Level male facility with 370 beds, not counting our admissions area. Constructed on the facility began in 2002 and started operations as Vermont’s newest facility on October 6th, 2003 when we accepted our first offenders. SSCF has a current allotment of 146 state employee positions. Contracted staff provide medical, mental health, dental, and other program services to our site. The facility is a campus-style correctional institution that encompasses over 27 acres and includes six buildings; the core facility, three inmate housing units, an emergency energy building, and a maintenance building. The SSCF campus includes modernized medical facilities with an infirmary for acute care, x-ray, dental and optometry services. Additionally, SSCF contains a housing unit for elderly and chronically ill offenders, a Secure Mental Health Stabilization unit, a Mental Health Transitional unit, and the state’s largest Close-Custody unit for housing disruptive inmates. SSCF also serves Orange, Windham, Windsor, and parts of Bennington County by accepting detainees from local, county, and state law-enforcement in these territories, serving a dual purpose as a jail as well as a prison. We are also very proud to be one of 16 campuses of the Community High School of Vermont (CHSV).
