What We Do
Under the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, Maryland Correctional Enterprises (MCE) provides structured programming for participants at locations around the State of Maryland. In partnership with other state agencies, private and community partners, we assist participants transitioning back into society with home planning and workforce preparation. Our program is voluntary and helps to improve interpersonal skills and employability upon release.

How to Support MCE
As a self-supporting state agency, we contribute over $50 million annually to the Maryland economy through
the purchase of raw materials, civilian wages, and inmate stipends.
Our products range from furniture, apparel, printing, license plates, and signage to food products, along with our many services of furniture restoration, laundry, data entry, office planning/design,  and mailing/distribution. Our market is restricted to state and local government and non-profits. Every time you purchase a product, you are changing a life – giving participants the ability to learn soft skills and hard skills that helps prepare them to return to our communities. Private companies have an opportunity to support our program through our Prison Industry Enhancement Program (P.I.E.C.P.) where we are permitted by the United States Bureau of Justice Assistance to enter into partnerships with private industry, provided several mandated requirements are met.
