BACKGROUND: The Central Valley Modified Community Correctional Facility (MCCF) is a medium security facility designed to house custody inmates and parole violators for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) who are designated as Level II custody grades.
SCOPE OF WORK: The Central Valley MCCF provides educational, vocational and counseling opportunities; which included drug and alcohol counseling, pre-release instruction, life/social skills development programs, English as a Second Language (ESL), GED instruction, and computer programming; for male inmates meeting the eligibility requirements of an MCCF. In addition to the extensive programing GEO provides full service medical, dental, and mental health services.
FACILITY DESCRIPTION: The 96,963 sq. ft. single-story masonry building was financed, designed and built by GEO on 20 acres of land. It contains a health care unit and rooms for classroom instruction, counseling, and visitation. Educational areas include a computer laboratory, library, and outdoors recreational areas. Housing units are designed so that inmates may move about freely under the direction of officers who monitor their activities and movements between areas. The dormitory style facility has 2 dorms with 86 beds and 6 dorms with 88 beds, and an additional 13 single-bunked cells for inmate segregation. Two cells with single bunks are reserved for medical purposes.
The facility design enables modern correctional techniques such as direct supervision. The building’s perimeter and control centers utilize state-of-the-art electronic surveillance and detection techniques. Security enhancement measures include a central control room that contains CCTV monitors allowing staff to survey the interior as well as perimeter areas, and a microwave detection system to monitor the perimeter fence.
ACCREDITATION: While this facility operates in compliance with American Correctional Association (ACA) Standards, the facility is not accredited at this time; nor is accreditation required by the client.
