The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation announced late Wednesday that it has again delayed awarding a contract for the first phase of a new $356 million death row complex at San Quentin State Prison.
There is no end in sight to California’s prison woes. Last month the state’s newly elected Gov. Jerry Brown proposed moving low-level offenders from state prisons to county jails to ease the state’s $28 billion deficit.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation launched an online Community Resource Directory for parolees, their families and other community members in an effort to help offenders successfully reintegrate into their neighborhoods and reduce recidivism.
