Pondville Correctional Center Massachusetts

Pondville Correctional Center

Pondville Correctional Center is located in Norfolk Massachusetts.  It is a minimum and pre-release center that houses about 205 inmates, about 50 of which are at a pre-release status.  All inmates at this facility are expected to participate in work assignments unless they have a preexisting medical condition.  All inmates are given educational and vocational training, including counseling in life skills, and alternatives to violence.  These courses are geared towards modifying an inmates previous behavior and giving the inmate a solid foundation to restart their life once they are released.

Pondville Correctional Center also runs a work release program that allows inmates who are within 18 months of parole or release to participate in.  Work release allows the inmates to leave the facility and report to a job in the surrounding community during the day, then return to the institution at the end of their shift.  This helps in multiple ways, including conditioning the inmate to new work habits and allowing the inmate to earn the funds they will need to restart life once they are released.  While incarcerated inmates can also earn a GED and take adult basic education courses in math, reading and writing.
