Funeral Attendance

In order for an inmate to attend funeral or graveside services, the inmate's attorney must petition the sentencing judge.

Fees apply for transporting. Transporting of inmate is performed by the Venango County Sheriff.  For fee information, contact the Venango County Sheriff's office at 814-432-9563.

Work Release Inmates

Rather than petitioning the sentencing judge, work release inmates may be authorized by the Work Release Administrator. For information, contact the Venango County Prison.
