CDCR Protests Prison Reduction Measures

CDCR Protests Prison Reduction Measures
Posted May 3rd, 2013 @ 7:24am

An official with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says the department has submitted a court-ordered list of prison reduction measures, under protest. CDCR Secretary Jeff Beard is also warning that public safety could be jeopardized and progress under the governor's realignment plan seriously undermined.

The court ordered the reduction the state prison system to allow for medical and mental health care that complies with the Constitution. Beard insists California inmates are already getting that level of care. He also says the governor will appeal the court order to the US Supreme Court.
