The Cambria County PA Prison is a medium/low-security detention center located at 425 Manor Dr in Ebensburg, PA. This county jail is operated locally by the Cambria County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Cambria County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Ebensburg Police Department. There are new detainees delivered to the jail daily, see Arrest Records here. Some are released after putting up bail, are released to a pretrial services caseload, are placed under supervision by a probation agency, or are released on their recognizance with an agreement to appear in court. If there is no release, the inmate must wait here at the jail for their court appearance as a guest of the County, getting a bed and three square meals.

Trustees are inmates who work in the jail as cooks, as orderlies for the staff, in the laundry, or the commissary. The trustees are paid a very small amount for their time and some jail gives the trustees a few days off their sentence in exchange for their work.
