I don;t level 2's because my man will never make it that low. i do not beleive level 2's have SNY. I could be wrong. If you go to cdcr.gov.org you can find all level two prisons. i really think SNY's are 3's and 4's.

Special need yards otherwise known as protective custody. Gang dropouts, child molestors, rapists usually go to protective custody's.

Not entirely... also people with drug debts, enemies, infamous cases or other reasons they would not be safe in GP.

As originally posted by aliferzwife.......... :D


High Desert - L4
Mule Creek - L2, 3, 4
SCC Jamestown - L3
Pleasant Valley - L4
Kern Valley - L4
CCI Tehachapi - L2
RJ Donovan - L3, L4

There are probably others, but I know for sure that these have at least one SNY yard per facility.


Here is the link where I got this information from. Hopefully it will help you out some!! :thumbsup:

Donovan has transferred all of their Level 3's out of the facility. They are sending them to Arizona or Corcoran. Rumor and I state RUMOR, is that they may take A and B Yards at Corcoran and turn them into both Level 3 SNY since C Yard is the most crowded in the state. Then they would give C Yard to Level 4 mainline.

CCI - Tehachapi has a Level 2 SNY yard

Donovan has SNY yards for both L3 and L4.

KVSP has a level 4 SNY yard with a gym housing level 3 SNY.

HDSP has a level 4 SNY yard with its gym housing level 3 SNY.

Corcoran has both L3 and L4 yards I believe.

SCC - Jamestown has a L3 SNY yard.

Mule Creek is an SNY prison, with Level 2, 3 and 4 yards.

There are really quite a few - it just depends what level you are asking about.

I heard from a reliable source way back that Donovan is moving all Level 3 to Arizona and Corcoran 1. They have already moved a lot of Level 4 to Donovan from KVSP and they keep sending them down there. Then they are building a big fence at Corcoran right now to divide up 2 sides of the prison. So they are up to something! :cool:

01-27-2009, 02:08 PM
hmm my husband is already at Corcoran and i had heard a while back that they are expanding the SNY yards there. He had requested to be sent to arizona but as of now the SNY yards for Arizona are full. I need to call again and verify because my husband just said they are sending another bus soon.
Anyways i was really hoping for an level 2 SNY yard closer to home. I hear Norco has one but i don't know for sure.

Hi Sanchez! My husband is on the same yard as yours, and when he went to classification recently, and his points dropped to level 2, they told him they wanted to send him to Tehachapi. I think at classification they will look at what prisons have beds open, and then make the determination. My husband asked to stay at Corcoran for another year so he could finish his vocational training - and surprisingly they let him stay.

Good luck!

Donovan has SNY yards for both L3 and L4.

KVSP has a level 4 SNY yard with a gym housing level 3 SNY.

HDSP has a level 4 SNY yard with its gym housing level 3 SNY.

Corcoran has both L3 and L4 yards I believe.

SCC - Jamestown has a L3 SNY yard.

Mule Creek is an SNY prison, with Level 2, 3 and 4 yards.

There are really quite a few - it just depends what level you are asking about.

Also CMC in san luis obispo has a level 3 SNY and i hear there that the food is good, they get alot of outside food ordered in and they get a key to there cells (each cellie gets a key) , they even have a lil store in there :)

I have a cousin that was transferring from corcaron to delano and when he stopped through on an over night trip the guys there told him east facility had SNY and i have a friend in there that says they have SNY too. that his big homie dropped out and is there with him. This was about a year ago but my friend is still in there, he calls once a week i can ask him again exactly which yards or what not are SNY. But i know he is a level 3 and west side is a level 2 cause he will be stransferring to west facility soon.

An SNY cannot transfer to a mainline prison. CMC West does not have a SNY, unless they have changed this in the last three months. If he dropped out and he is SNY, then he will be going to a level 2 SNY facility.

I have a cousin that was transferring from corcaron to delano and when he stopped through on an over night trip the guys there told him east facility had SNY and i have a friend in there that says they have SNY too. that his big homie dropped out and is there with him. This was about a year ago but my friend is still in there, he calls once a week i can ask him again exactly which yards or what not are SNY. But i know he is a level 3 and west side is a level 2 cause he will be stransferring to west facility soon.

Converting a yard is a process. All those on the current GP yard have to be moved out and new SNY inmates brought in. Often this takes a few months. Program is split, visiting is often split, etc.

The best way to learn for sure is to contact the PIO at whatever given prison you are interested in learning has a SNY. He/she can tell you when it's expected to open and what level it will be. :thumbsup:

Well I have been staring at all the CDCR pages and statistics on the prisons. Most of them either don't say there is an SNY yard when people say there is, or they don't say they house that level when they actually do. I had no idea Mule had an SNY yard at all until I talked to my inmate fellows and they said who had what. One guy was told that SCC (Jamestown) has an SNY level 2 yard, which I am still unclear of, because it says nothing on the CDCR website.

I can help with both of these. :D

Mule Creek is an SNY Prison. There are some GP minimum level inmates on the support yard, but the main prison is ALL SNY.

SCC Jamestown has one Level 3 SNY yard (Tuolumne Yard). My hubby is endorsed there, we're just waiting for the bus ticket.

You can read in the SCC forum and the Mule Creek forum about the various yards. :thumbsup:

This truly is a fantastic place for information. I don't think I could deal with all their questions and them doing time without the people on here.

I feel you - really I do! If it wasn't for PTO.....

Mule Creek is very difficult to get into. We've been trying for years. All he can do is request it and see what happens. I'm not sure they have Level 2 SNY though. I know they have a Level 4 and 2 different Level 3 yards. Not sure about Level 2.

Here is the best thing you can do if you have narrowed your choices down - so it's fewer calls - call the PIO at each institution you're considering and ask him/her what level SNY they have. I know we shouldn't have to - the CDCr site should be up-to-date, but it isn't, so.....

Will I actually get an answer? I know i'm not calling for personal information, but so far I can't even get any of them to answer their phones.

He needs to be near his family which is in Modesto because his mother can't drive to visit. There are only 3 prisons close enough, 2 of them have SNY. He may have to do a point override to stay at level 3 and transfer anyway.

I have been dealing with prison issues for years, but at least since I found PTO the answers are easier to find and I don't feel quite so alone in this mess.

You mean just those in gym settings, right? I haven't heard that, but they cannot house SNY Inmates on GP yards, so you don't have to worry about that.

Out of state is a possibility though. SNY are eligible for out of state transfers.

from what my husband's counselor said Sac is coming down on CDCr to not have any mixed (levels) housing. My husband is currently in a gym that houses L2 & 3 they want to convert it strickly to a L3.
His counselor says this is why there is "so much" movement going oon right now.

They are still wards of the CDCR and all the same rules are still applied.

Howdy,

It is to the point now that just about all California State Prisons have at least one SNY yard. Some more. For example, Avenal just recently converted thier 6 Facility over to SNY in addition to facilities 3 and 4 which were flipped back in 2005. So now over half of the prison houses SNY inmates being that facility 1 has "The Hole" on it. I remember when that happened because my lifer friend whom I corresspond with was on the facility 4 yard and got moved to the 5 yard because of the switch.
What is important to know is that what prison/s that he tells his counsellor he wants to be transfered to will depend on his points. Also, what is important is what his county of last legal ressidence is, or whatever area he wants to be near. Do you know what level he is classified at?
What is very important to know is that once he decides to go SNY there is no turning back. That is like a tattoo and once he signs his chrono and becomes classified as an SNY inmate, he will never be able to walk a GP yard again. Just something for him to keep in my mind. Thats all.
Well, I hope this information helped. Feel free to e-mail me if you have anymore questions. Until next time, may the force be with you. Happy trails.

Aloha,

Solano has NO SNY at all.

SAC might have a L3, but I believe it's EOP only??

Folsom has no SNY as far as I know.

The easiest way to check this is to go into the forums and post asking if they have SNY.

Failing that - call the PIO at the prison(s) you're interested in and ask. Or your loved on can ask his counselor. :thumbsup:

Well, CDCr is flipping yards almost constantly - hence this thread. They do not update their website, so it's really only by members here coming and posting when you SNY yards open.

So - monitor this thread and I'd really advise anyone who is interested in a specific prison, but is not sure if they have SNY or the level SNY you need, to call the PIO (public info officers) or the prison and ask.

I was trying to look for the two closest facilities to me that house Level II SNY and it seems to be CRC and ??RJD?? When I go to the Donovan posts there is no mention of level II but I see that on the list posted here it is said to have level II and IV... Can someone with info regarding this please let me know - have there been some recent changes that are just not being updated in the RJD forum???

See post #139 above for the most current list of SNY yards.

Yes, SNY is the same as PC, though SNY has been the new term for quite some time.

SNY inmates program just as GP inmates do. They have all the same privileges.

As far as visiting on both days, Im not entirely sure but at the facility my hub is at, you can visit both days.

The list is above (post #139) which indicates current locations and level is pretty up-to-date, but I can confirm for you that Level 4 SNY yards do currently exist at:

KVSP
MCSP
SVSP
PVSP
HDSP

For the others listed; RJ Donovan, LAC Lancaster and SATF (Cor II) you might just cruise into those 3 forums and check.

The CDCR website is pretty closed about listing SNY info. Some pages for some prisons do list SNY, some don't. Same with indicating custody levels. You're going to get your best info here - or by contacting the prisons directly.

Yes they all do. My guy is up for transfer at SVSP in SNY level 4 and I recently had to do the research to decide which prisons he was going to pick. We picked RJD and PVSP but KVSP and SATF were also in the running and MCSP-yes they have level 4 it just wasn't one of our choices.

No Prob. Info is power, right?
Also, another update: SVSP sent all their SNY level III inmates across the street to CTF (which now has the only III SNY of the two facilities). And, KVSP has ONLY a level IV SNY. All the others are accurate with regards to which facilities have III SNYards. I haven't had time to really check the other levels on your list, but it looks close as to IV yards. Did you compile the list yourself or do you have a "source" you'd like to share?

Okay, I'll fix the SVSP one. :thumbsup:

KVSP has Level 3 SNY on C yard in that yard's gym. They are using the gyms on all 4 yards to house lower level inmates and the blocks on all yards house all Level 4's. They program separately however. A, B and D yard are GP Level 4 with either level 2 or 3's in each gym. C yard is the SNY. ;) Then there is M yard which is the min yard outside the fence line.

Nope, I have no special contact - just moderate here in all the Cali forums and in other online groups around the state. I'm somewhat out there all over and pick up a lot of info, but the SNY yards are changing all the time - more are added, some get changed (like at SVSP), so we try our best to keep as up-to-date as possible. :)

We appreciate your info!!

I know San Quentin isnt on the list but I just went to a thread and they say SQ has a sny yard... is that true?? and if so, what level...

As far as I know (??? Maybe something new) there is no dedicated SNY yard for "mainline" inmates at SQ. From reading that thread, it sounds like they're talking about reception inmates who are SNY. All of the Reception Hubs have housing for SNY inmates who are going through the reception process.

However, that's the purpose of this thread - to try to keep up with the changes regarding SNY yards statewide.

My best advice would be to call the prison's PIO (public info. officer) and inquire if SQ now has a dedicated SNY yard (that is not for reception inmates) and what security level it houses.

The PIO at San Quentin is Lt. Robinson 415.455.5008

If you do learn they have an SNY yard, please post here so we can add it to the list.

I second Terry's assessment. I currently have a client in Reception at Q and there is no SNY there that I'm aware of. There is a Protective Housing Unit or protective custody unit within reception and an ADSEG (administrative segregation unit) also in reception, which is a staple in any institution. But, that said, there is no SNY that I'm aware of. The protective custody unit is just a less restrictive form of ADSEG that allows SNY destined guys to have a bit more freedom and interaction with other similarly situated inmates - as opposed to the relatively constant lockdown and isolation of ADSEG.

I have removed CMC from the list after both FedCon90265 and myself called the prison and were both told there is no SNY whatsoever at CMC.

When my husband was at Mule Creek last year, a friend of his with terminal cancer was sent to the CMC hospice unit. I am absolutely sure of this, as it upset my husband to know that if CDCr was sending him there it could only mean the guy didn't have long to live. He was a level 3 SNY inmate. Would they have "unclassified" his SNY status, or is it possible that whoever you spoke to didn't really know what they were talking about? Weird.

Also, New Folsom (SAC) has a level 4 SNY yard, but from what I understand it is only for EOP inmates.

Well, there is probably an internal classification for these men who are sent to hospices. There would be no need to change his SNY classification though as these are hospital-type units for prisoners who are terminal and who need more daily medical attention than they can give on regular prison yards or even in prison CTC's.

There is also a hospice unit at CMF. May be others as well, but that's a whole nuther thread to start. :)

Kern Valley State Prison has one L4 SNY yard (C yard) and is now in the process of flipping D yard (currently L4 GP) to a SNY.

It will be for L4 180 SNY inmates. The GP inmates currently on Delta Yard will either be moved to one of the remaining 2 GP yards (if they are 180 inmates) or transferred out to a 270 L4 yard if they are 270 eligible.

Prison Admin confirms this and says the conversion should be complete by August.

It's too bad SLO Men's Colony does not have a level 2 SNY. :-( Now instead of driving 1 hour to see my husband I will have to drive 3 hours either to Tehachapi or Kern. :-( Boooo!

Avenal is closer than Tehachapi and a little closer than Kern, and better I've heard than Kern. Doesn't CMC now have a level 2 SNY?

I got confirmation on Calipat (CA) - they do have a Level 4 SNY yard. ;)

Here is the current list (as we know it):

ASP Level 2 (2 yards)
CAL Level 4
CCI Levels 1 and 2
CIM Level 2
COR Level 3
CRC Level 2
CTF Level 3
CVSP Level 2 - ( 2 yards)
HDSP Levels 3 and 4
ISP Level 3
KVSP Levels 3 and 4 - (2 yards)
LAC Levels 3 and 4
MCSP Levels 2, 3 and 4
PVSP Levels 2, 3 and 4
RJD Levels 2 and 4
SATF Levels 2, 3 and 4
SCC Level 3
SVSP Level 4

FSP has a Level 4 SNY, but it's only for inmates classified as EOP.


HI!
From what I understand, Avenal now has 3 SNY yards. They converted yard 2 in February, in addition to the already established yard 3 and 4. All are Level II.

PVSP has L4 SNY - 180
SVSP has L4 SNY - 180
I think SATF may be 180
Also, there is ISP and CAL - I believe they are also 180

Taken from wiki...


The housing blocks "are partitioned into three separate, self-contained sections forming a 180 degree half circle." The "180" design is considered the "most secure prison design" because it "gives control-booth officers a straight-on look at prisoners." In contrast, the "270" design "with portions of the house reaching back behind the blind side of the booth" is considered less secure.

C yard which is GP is a 180 yard.

The last I heard, CMC did not have any SNY yards. I believe one of the yards is called a "soft yard" but no SNY.

If you want to check for sure, I'd call the PIO at CMC and inquire. :thumbsup:

I had a friend who was at CMC-West and he told me that when he got their the CO's made it clear that the "politics" (specifically actions like checking paperwork) were not and would not be tolerated! So as for a SNY yard, I don't think so, however as the other poster said... "soft"

Also I believe that the SNY EOP yard is at California State Prison Sacramento CSP-Sac (NEW FOLSOM), Not At Folsom State Prison FSP (Old Folsom)
