The Bedford County PA Correctional Facility (BCCF) is a medium-security detention center located at 425 Imlertown Rd Bedford, PA which is operated locally by the Bedford County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Bedford County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Bedford Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

BCCF confines a variety of individuals with different charges. BCCF utilizes an ongoing classification process, which begins when an inmate is received into the facility and continues until the inmate is released. As such, it is a process intended to address the needs of the individual, as well as those of the facility. The classification process manages the total population with regard to housing, programming and facility work assignments. Decisions are based on information related to the individuals present functioning, as well as personal, criminal, institutional, psychological, medical, and social histories. BCCF shall not discriminate against any person based on sex, race, age, color, disability, religion, national origin, or political or religious beliefs.
Inmate work opportunities: There are two (2) types of work opportunities available to individuals confined at BCCF. An individual may be selected for an institutional job assignment, which can be either inside or outside. Those inmates assigned to jobs which are outside of BCCF require a higher level of clearance and must be approved by the Classification Committee, Deputy Warden, the Warden, and at times the Probation Department. In addition, BCCF operates a workforce program that provides work opportunities within the facility.
Barbering services: Barbering service is available on a scheduled basis. Religious activities: The Chaplain is available to meet inmates’ individual religious needs. A representative from other faiths may be contacted for inmates by the Chaplain if requested.
