To ensure that it has a uniform set of inmate assignment standards, CALPIA should continue its efforts to issue regulations and complete the amendment of Corrections' operations manual. It should then work with Corrections to implement the changes to the inmate assignment criteria and the assignment process when the regulations take effect.
In April 2013, the CALPIA Inmate work/Training and Education Regulations submitted to OAL were approved and can be referenced in 15 CCR 8004, 8006, 8007, and 8008. The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has implemented the policy and it is contained in their operating manual section 51121.1.
CALPIA filed Inmate work/Training and Education Regulations with OAL for final review on September 14, 2012. Once approved, CALPIA will work with the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to implement the new policy.
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
