Default High Desert State Prison- History

High Desert State Prison, Susanville, CA

The primary mission of High Desert State Prison (HDSP) is to provide for the Housing and Programming of general population and sensitive needs high security (Level IV) and medium security (level III) inmates. Our inmate population consists of three (3) Level IV yards, two (2) of which are 180 design buildings (Facility C and Facility D), and one (1) 270 design building (Facility B). Our 270 design yard, Facility B, was converted to a Sensitive Needs Yard (SNY) in October 2007, which houses Level IV SNY inmates. On our 270 design medium Level III, Facility A houses Level III inmates. Facility A is also the home of our Reentry Hub Facility, which provides relevant training and services to eligible and interested inmates in order to facilitate the successful transition back to their communities and reduce their likelihood of reoffending. HDSP’s Reentry programs are comprised of Academics, the California Identification Card Program, Pre-Employment Transition, and Cognitive Behavioral Treatment, which includes Substance Abuse Treatment, Anger Management, Family Relationships and Criminal Thinking. The Minimum Support Facility (MSF) houses non camp eligible Level I inmates who perform job duties in various areas of the institution outside the secure perimeter, such as the warehouse, garage, out grounds, staff snack bar, etc. Our Administrative Segregation Unit (ASU) is located on our Facility D, 180 design housing and consists of two buildings, D7 and D8. Within the first three years of HDSP’s activation, it became apparent that the building originally designed and designated as the ASU was not adequate to meet the demands of the inmate population who require segregated housing. Construction on a new stand-alone ASU began in October 2001. The unit was named Facility Z and activated in September 2004. HDSP houses inmates with the lowest level custody, Minimum B, all the way up to Maximum custody (ASU inmates). Design capacity for the entire institution is approximately 3,660 inmates.
Historical Notes

In early 1990, the CDC initiated discussions for a new prison in Lassen County on the grounds of the California Correctional Center (CCC). This location took advantage of existing state property and the ability to share operations with an existing prison.
Construction of the new prison began on July 14, 1993, with a budget of $240 million. In just 24 months the new prison became a dominant part of the surrounding landscape. The construction of the prison consumed 71,985 yards of concrete, 20,000 tons of steel, 364 miles of electrical wire and 7 miles of chain link fencing, combined with the multitude of other required construction materials necessary in the completion of this modern prison complex.
Named High Desert State Prison by the Lassen County Board of Supervisors, the prison is located approximately eight miles east of the town of Susanville, or about a 1 hour 30 minute drive northwest of Reno, Nevada.

Default HDSP Approved Vendors for Specal Purchases and Quarterly Packages

Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets its own rules as to what items are allowed and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCFs or the LA County Jail System.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Under Garments and Clothing, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions.

List of CDCR Approved Package Vendors can be found here.

Quarters are counted as follows:

1st Quarter: January 1st - March 31st

2nd Quarter: April 1st - June 30th

3rd Quarter: July 1st - September 30th

4th Quarter: October 1st - December 31st

** Reception inmates CANNOT receive quarterly or special packages**

Magazines & paperback books can also be ordered, however they must come directly from the vendor.
Chain book stores and Amazon are excellent resources.

Release (Parole/Dress-Out) Clothing
Inmates scheduled for parole or awaiting discharge may receive a release clothing package via U.S. Postal Service or common carrier no earlier than 30 days prior to their scheduled parole or discharge date. Inmate release clothing packages, limited to one set of clothing, shall be retained in a secure location by the department until their release.

Default HDSP Visiting Information

Before you can visit an inmate, you will need to be approved. Your inmate must send you a visiting form (CDC 106). This form MUST be signed by your inmate before he sends it you you. Once you receive your visiting questionnaire, fill it out TRUTHFULLY and don't leave any questions blank. Then, once you are finished, send your completed questionnaire to:

Attn: Visiting Sergeant
High Desert State Prison
P.O. Box 750
Susanville, CA 96127

The average wait for a response is 6-8 weeks, from the time your application is received by the visiting staff. In some cases, it takes longer than 8 weeks. I suggest calling the visiting department if your wait is longer than 8 weeks, and find out if your application has been received. They will NOT tell you if you have been approved or disapproved over the phone. It is the responsibility of the inmate to relay that information to you. If you are APPROVED, the inmate will be notified. If you are DISAPPROVED, the inmate will be notified AND you will be mailed a written response with details of the denial.

Reasons for DISAPPROVAL include (but are not limited to):

Lying on your application
Being a Convicted Felon (you must have prior written approval from the warden before stepping on prison grounds)
Leaving Questions Blank
Having UNPAID tickets (of ANY kind)
Having Outstanding Warrants
Being on Active Parole/Probation (you will need prior approval from the Warden)

You’re Approved!!

From our PTO member Cysreese (2006):

My husband sends me the food list just in case I want to add or change something and so that I can send all paperwork together.

He sends the Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders. It has the amount of money you will send for the family visit, put an x where is states "these funds are to pay for food during a Family visit (FV) At the bottom you will sign and date it.

Family visit menu order form for the food. Then there is a white slip that has your husband's/son's name and CDC number and all those that will be visiting. It has the dates of the family visit. It also has on the paper two boxes for you to check. The first one says you will arrive as schedule between whatever times is on the paper and the second box says you will not arrive and to please cancel the visit.

He also sends a pink form which is his trust account withdrawal order form with his info and he signs and dates it. When I am done looking over everything I send it back to the address provided on the paper with all visitors names on it.

White form- Names with visitors on it and if you will be attending the FV.
Pink form-Trust fund paper
Yellow paper- Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders.

Family Visiting Program Informational
Level III and IV
Welcome to the HDSP’s Family Visiting Program. This program is a means to help establish and/or maintain a healthy relationship between you and your immediate family. Family Visiting is a privilege for those inmates who are willing to abide by the rules and regulations set forth by this institution and the State of California. Every effort will be made to provide a pleasant atmosphere for the family visit within institutional security guidelines. It is every inmate’s responsibility who participates in the family visiting program, to advise their prospective visitor(s) of the following information.

Family visiting approval process… A Family Visiting Application, (CDC Form 1046) and a current quarterly menu will be filled out by the inmate requesting a family visit and turned in to his Correctional Counselor I. The assigned Counselor will be responsible to verify inmate’s eligibility and immediate family member(s) as defined in the California Code of Regulations, Title 15, Article 1, Sections 3000 and 3174 (e), (1&2). The Counselor will also verify that the family visitor applications have been approved for contact visits. All family visits will require the approval of the Unit Facility Captain. All visitor(s) must submit a Visiting Questionnaire Form (CDC Form 106) and be approved by the Visiting Sergeant or Visiting Lieutenant.

Inaccurate incomplete documents… If any forms (Trust Account Withdrawal Form (CDC Form 193), menu, or Family Visiting application (CDC Form 1046)) are determined by the Family Visiting Officer and/or Correctional Counselor I, to be inaccurately calculated or incomplete, they will be immediately returned to the inmate for correction prior to scheduling a family visit.

Scheduling… Completed and approved family visiting applications will be processed as received by the Family Visiting Officer, on a first come first serve basis. Each week facility A, B, C, and D will have one-two Family Visiting sessions available: The Family Visit starts on Friday and concludes on Monday.

Notification… A Family Visiting Inmate Notification Form, (CDC Form 1072), with the scheduled family visit date and a copy of this Family Visiting Program Informational, will be forwarded to the inmate. It is the inmate’s responsibility to mail the completed CDC Form 1072 to their family visitor. The inmate is also responsible to inform their family visitor(s) of the rules regarding this program. The family visitor(s) will then sign and return the lower half of the CDC Form 1072 to the Family Visiting Officer within 15 working days. The family visitor will also confirm their visiting intentions via a telephone call to the Family Visiting Office at (530) 251-5100 extension 5715, no less than 48 hours prior to the family visit. Family visitors who confirm and then fail to appear for the family visit will be subject to suspension of their family visiting privileges.

Family visiting check-in and check-out… Check-in time is between 9:30am and 11:00am. Family visitors are expected to stay their entire family visit. Out-processing at non scheduled times will require the approval of the Visiting Lieutenant or Watch Commander. Family visits will last no longer than 69 hours. Check-out time is between 8:00am and 9:30am.

Identification… Family visitor(s), fourteen years of age and older, must have a valid picture ID, (e.g., drivers license, DMV ID card, etc.). Wives will be required to provide an original or certified copy of a marriage certificate. The accompanying adult of minor children will be required to provide an original or certified copy of a birth certificate. Minor children not accompanied by their legal guardian will also be required to provide a notarized letter of consent for the accompanying adult to bring the minor child on a family visit. This letter will include the name of the inmate to be visited.
No food items allowed… All food is supplied through a vender except baby food. Each family visiting unit has a kitchenette. All cooking and eating utensils are provided.

A notarized physician’s statement with a description of what the diet includes, and a way the diet must be continued throughout the three day period, must be submitted to the Correctional Counselor I with the family visiting application.

Trust Funds… Funds to purchase food for the family visit will be withdrawn from the inmate’s trust account. The trust accounting office will be responsible for payment to the contract vendor after the invoice is received, upon delivery of the food order. If funds are not available in the inmates account, the family visit request will be denied/canceled and the inmate must reapply to receive a new family visit date, via his Correctional Counselor I.

Minimum food purchase…Inmates will purchase at least two meals per day for themselves and each person visiting. Food not consumed shall be taken out by the visitor at the conclusion of the visit. The State will not reimburse or repurchase any unused food items. Unopened food items may be donated to the Friendship Place.

Service charge and delivery fee… A service charge of 5% will be added to the total food cost (excluding any sales taxes) to cover processing and storage expense. There will be a $10.00 delivery fee added to each order for the purpose of the handling/delivery.

Restitution exempt funds… If the inmate’s family elects to send funds specifically for the purpose of family visiting, AB 95/15 exempts these funds from restitution. Family visiting funds must be accompanied with a Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Form (CDC Form 1839), to be considered funds for family visiting. These funds will be placed on hold until either used for a family visit, if inmate transfers, paroles or is discharged.

If you would like to make an Airline Reservation, the inmate needs to take a bus or Taxi to the Sacramento Airport (SMF),(at his own expense) which is about 15 miles from the bus station..make your reservation for anytime after 3:00 P.M. to make sure he has plenty of time to arrive at the airport and check in.
