PolyCon (formerly Management & Correction Corporation, MCC) is the private company that took over management duties of Litchfield Penitentiary from the Federal Department of Corrections in Season Three.

Changes made at Litchfield[]

For the Inmates[]

  • Some inmates are contracted to perform work for a lingerie company, Whispers, in a warehouse-turned-sewing factory on prison grounds.
  • All food comes pre-prepared in large plastic bags, which are then "cooked" quasi-sous vide-style.
  • Books for the library will be whatever is donated (which means it is unlikely that the inmates will get any legal texts to work on their cases).
  • Programs to assist inmates re-enter society are no longer a priority and most likely are not budgeted for.

For the Guards[]

  • Guards are made to re-apply for their jobs, at which time they lost membership in their union.
  • Guard hours are cut.
  • New guards are hired, but are not required to have, nor do they receive, sufficient training.
  • When the experienced guards stage a mass walkout, MCC hires army veterans to replace them as this brings with it a tax break incentive for the company.
