Default Wasco State Prison-Reception Center

Wasco State Prison-Reception Center - History & Mission Statement


The Wasco facility was the first of two identical prison/reception centers in Kern County. The second facility is near the town of Delano. Both institutions' primary mission is to provide short term housing necessary to process, classify, and evaluate new inmates physically and mentally to determine their security level, program requirements and appropriate institutional placement.

In addition to the reception center, a 620-bed medium custody facility houses general population inmates to help support and maintain the reception center. A minimum custody facility provides inmate work crews for community service projects and institutional maintenance outside the security perimeter.

Five additional reception center dormitories are under construction and scheduled for activation during 1997.


Wasco State Prison was opened February 1991, and covers 634 acres. As of Fiscal Year 2000-2001, the following statistics apply:



Inmate Programs

PIA: Farm crop, laundry.

Vocational: Dry cleaning, electronics, landscaping, office services and related technology, upholstery.

Academic: Adult Basic Education I, II, and III, High School/GED, Pre-Release, English as a Second Language, Independent Study Program.

Other: Community Service Crews, Youth Diversion, Religious, Arts in Corrections, Victim Awareness, Computers for Schools, Adopt A School Program.

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, 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. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year. However due to the limited items available and limited space for which to store their property. Special Order Packages will most likely only be utilized one or twice per a calendar year. Note: Some institutions require that Special Order Packages be ordered by and paid for by the inmates themselves. Individuals are not allowed to purchase Special Order Packages and have them sent directly to their inmates at some institutions. Contact your facilities R& R Department to assure that you can send special packages direct.

Inmate Quarterly Package, Yearly Quarters:

1St – January 1 Through March 31.
2nd – April 1 Through June 30.
3rd – July 1 Through September 30.
4th – October 1 Through December 31.
