Default History of the California Men's Colony

California Men's Colony

The California Men's Colony (CMC) state prison is located in San Luis Obispo, California, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. It is a level I, II, and III prison, with an east and west yard. This is a high profile prison with many programs to help prisoners adapt to society when they are released. On the facility is a fire camp for approved inmates. Some of the programs for prisoners include: NA and AA meetings, church services and sports including out-side sports such as baseball, etc. CMC's rules and regulations make a safe prison and it is known to be one of the best prisons in California. Jobs for level I inmates include picking up trash on the beach. Where it is sometimes impossible to get a hold of the warden or visiting sergeant at most prisons, CMC allows family members of inmates to talk personally via phone during normal business hours and offers a 24 hour contact with CMC CO's and other employee's.

The prison first opened in 1954, and is designed to house 3,884 inmates. As of May 7, 2004, the population was 6,612.

__________________________________________________ _______________
California Men's Colony - Mission Statement
The primary mission of the California Men's Colony is to provide secure housing for minimum and medium security inmates.

Institution Details

CMC has two physically separate facilities, designed as East and West facilities. An emphasis is placed on providing all inmates with programs for self-improvement. These programs include academic and vocational education, work skills in prison industries and inmate self-help group activities.

The Level III East Facility, which houses medium security inmates, is divided into four quadrangles. Each quadrangle has its own dining room, classrooms, athletic fields, and two three-story housing units. The East Facility has a fully licensed hospital and provides a full range of medical services for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The facility also provides a Mental Health Delivery System in the form of an Enhanced Outpatient Program and Outpatient treatment for inmates assigned to the Correctional Case Management System.

The Level I and II West Facility houses minimum security inmates in dormitory settings. In addition to the three general population housing units, the West Facility contains a Level I camp program for fire suppression, conservation and other community service work. The West Facility works extensively within San Luis Obispo County, in conjunction with other governmental entities, through Community Service Crews which perform many valuable services to the various communities within the county.
Institution Statistics

California Men's Colony's West Facility was opened in 1954, and its East Facility was opened in 1961. CMC covers 356 acres.

Barnes & Noble *** You can order cd's, calendars and other things through Barnes & Noble, but remember that the cd's will count as a Quarterly Package.

***Magazines & Paperback Books can also be ordered however they must come directly from a publisher, distributor or bookstore doing mail order business.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets it’s own rules as to what items are allowed and prohibited and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors therefore provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCF’s or the LA County Jail System. All Quarterly Packages are limited to a maximum weight of 30 Lbs. Nor can they exceed dimensions of 24” x 24” x 24”. All vendors list those institutions for which they provide goods and services and what privilege groups.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year.


Inmate Quarterly Package, Yearly Quarters:

1st Quarter = January 1st - March 31st

2nd Quarter = April 1st - June 30th

3rd Quarter = July 1st - September 30th

4th Quarter = October 1st - December 31st

Post CMC Visiting Information

So you are going to visit your loved one at CMC East & West, here's what you need to know.

Institution Name: CALIFORNIA MEN'S COLONY (EAST & WEST FACILITY)

Yard Levels: Level I & II (West)and Level III (East)

Appointment Required: Appointments are not required for Contact visits. However for all Non-Contact visits including Administrative Segregation an appointment is required. You can make a non-contact visiting appointment by calling (805) 547-7825 on Thursdays ONLY between the hours of 9am-11am. You must make an appointment at least 3 days in advance and no more than 10 days in advance. ***Non-Contact Visits are a maximum of 2 hours and a minimum of 1 hour.

Must Line up to Obtain a Number: For all Contact visits numbers are passed out starting at 7:30am. You can obtain a number by waiting in the car line that starts on the same road as "Friends Outside" at 7:15am sharp (and no earlier). The numbers are given out on a lottery system. That means it is not 1st come 1st serve. You can be the first car in line and end up with pass #80. So lining up early does not guarantee a low numbered pass. Once you receive your number you may leave the prison grounds and return. Then you will line up at 9:00am by your number in front of either the East facility gatehouse or the West facility gatehouse (depending on which facility the inmate is housed at). If you do not have a number then it is first come first serve after 9:00am and you will line up behind those people that have numbers.

Parking Lot Line Up: Yes, only for contact visits and it is the same line for both the East and West facility. If you have a Non-Contact visiting appointment then you do not have to wait in line.

This can be done presenting the inmate's birth certificate and the inmate's parent's certified birth certificate (the grandparent's child) to show family lineage.

Approval can be obtained by having your physician submit a letter to the CMO or CMC to explain the extent of your medical problem and be in approval of your overnight visit to the prison. Failure to have prior written approval will result in your visit being denied upon arrival at the institution.



A REMINDER: IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING WEAPONS, AMMUNITION, TEARGAS, ALCOHOL, CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES OR NARCOTICS INTO A PENAL INSTITUTION. NO SMOKING ALLOWED.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From our PTO member Cysreese:

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
Yello paper- Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders.
White paper- Food menu

Default Citizens Complaints

CITIZENS COMPLAINTS

Prisoners, and non-prisoners who have had contact with CDC, can file a
special complaint, known as a "Citizens Complaint," challenging a CDC policy
or practice.

What is a prisoner "citizens complaint?"

A prisoner can file a citizen's complaint against a peace/correctional
officer alleging employee misconduct. The citizen's complaint works much
the same way as a regular 602 with a few exceptions:

· There is a one year, not 15 day, time requirement to file the complaint.
· The informal first level is bypassed.
· The formal first level may be bypassed at the discretion of CDC.
· The 602 - if alleged against a peace officer - must include a signed
Rights and Responsibilities Statement, CDC Form 1858, or else it will be
rejected, unless the Director allows the prisoner to sign Form 1858 at the
appeal interview. Form 1858 ensures that the prisoner knows that it is
illegal to knowingly file a complaint against a peace officer. To do
otherwise is a misdemeanor.
(See Penal Code Sec. 148.6 and 15 CCR Sec. 3084.1(e).

Once filed, the warden or chief deputy warden determines
whether an investigation is warranted. If ordered, investigations are
categorized as either Category I or II. Prisoner and others are notified of
the status and or findings of the investigation(s) only when complete.

If no formal investigation is warranted, the appeal is referred back to the
first level.

What kind of "citizen's complaints" can be filed a non-prisoner?

A "citizen's complaint" from a non-prisoner can be filed by writing the
warden of a prison or head administrator of the parole region where the
officer is employed. Non-prisoners also must submit a signed CDC Form 1858.
Complaints by non-prisoners must be answered in 30 days unless there are
extraordinary circumstances.

If answered, a citizen's complaint will be referred for CDC investigation.
The specific findings are only available upon conclusion of the
investigation. Both complaints and reports must be maintained for 5 years.

OTHER GRIEVANCE CHANNELS:

In addition to or as a compliment to the 602 process, grievances may be
lodged with the following persons/institutions:

1. CDC Ombudsmen
(who is a CDC employee appointed to investigate complaints)

CDC Ombudsmen
1515 S Street, 5th Floor
North Building
Sacramento, CA 95814

2. State Personnel Board
(any non-prisoner may file a complaint against a state employee here)

State Personnel Board
Merit Appeals Office
801 Capitol Mall
Sacramento, CA 94244

3. Office of Internal Affairs
(prisoner or other persons can request investigations of staff misconduct)

Office of Internal Affairs
P.O. Box 3009
Sacramento, CA 95812

4. Office of Inspector General
(especially created to investigate prisoner and youth facility problems)

Office of the Inspector General
801 K Street, Suite 1900
Sacramento, CA 95814
