Prison Industries

The Division of Industries serves the Department of Corrections and the state of South Carolina by employing and training inmates. This training oriented work allows the inmates to return to society with skills that will enable them to become useful and productive citizens.
In pursuit of this objective, the cost of incarceration is offset through inmate wages, and quality products and services are provided to qualified businesses and organizations at substantial savings.

Three programs operate within Prison Industries: TraditionalService and Prison Industry Enterprise (PIE).
