Default what does the cdc number acronyms stand for?

just wondering what does all the stuff stand for in the cdc number? My friend had a list before of what the letter stands for... as you probably all know it is 1 letter composed of 5 numbers like:
V77442

i see alot of v's, f's, and rarely w's and p's and z's. what does this stand for in the naming scheme?

so if they have a letter at all they have been there longer... or like if the letter is lower down the list of alphabet (say p versus a) they've been there longer?

It's alphabetical- a D has been in the system longer than a V, for example- There are a few letters (Don't ask me which ones, I can't recall at the moment) that are reserved and have specific meanings, but for the most part, it's just sequential.

A CO told me that it all stood for how long he has been locked up. That was in IL. I don't know if each state is the same.

I heard in NY the letter defines what area you're from. B is western, A is NYC.

In NY, it is the year of classification (ie:05), the area of classification (ie:A), and the number that was issued that year at that classifying facility (ie:0001).
So, if you were classified at Downstate in 2005, and you were the first one of the year, you would be 05-a-0001.
If I am mistaken, I'm sure someone will be along presently to correct me.

ya.l I dont know much. I work at their answering service that takes calls after hours for all of region 1 and 2 (everywhere from oxnard/fresno/san francisco/chico/ventura/etc etc) after 5 pm. So if anyone you know calls the office in they'll probably be talking to me

i did find tho it seems all women are only w and p's. I was hoping the first letter could tell you if it was a violent act/murder, or rape etc. That would be cool to know I think what the numbers stand for. My friend again did lose the list he had

here the letters go according to the severity of the crime/record. A and B numbers are the 1st and 2nd degree crimes committed as well as for those inmates who have long/violent records. C is for basically those crimes just a notch above a midemeanor.

at least this is what i always thought.

well today at work I had some guy call in with a g i believe.. something I'd never seen before. He didn't erally remember his number cuz he was on paper commitment or something or maybe that was another call (usually paper commitment means they have no cdc number yet seems), but he said he was real new on it

Default CDC# Prefix

My wife is incarcerated in California, Her CDC# begins with an X. She has been there 5+ years. But from what I understand The CDC# is assigned
when they arrive and inter the system. So I don't see how it could reflect
how long they have been there.
It could possibly indicate if they are violent or nonviolent offenders or something to that effect. Most of the women where she is located have either an X or a W at the beginning of their CDC#
I hope this helps.

Bo

In California the CDC# are assigned as they come into the system - it has nothing to do with their crime. Those with an A have been in the system since the 60's. They started with A00000 and the next guy was A00001, next was A00002 and on and on.

There are a few exceptions:

They did not use G because handwritten it is too close to C.

I is used for Interstate Transfer Cases.

M is for Youthful Offenders (CYA) murder cases that are transferred to CDCR.

N is for Civil addicts. Civil addicts are non-felony commitments to CRC for drug treatment.

Q handwritten is too close to O, which is used for out patient offenders, which are inmates assigned to mental or hospital facilities.

S is used for Safekeepers, which are county jail inmates that the county facilities are unable to keep.

U handwritten is too close to V.

W is for Female felons. Now using X numbers.

Y is used by the CYA.

Z is used for diagnostic cases, referred to as 90-day observations.


So, in California you can tell how long someone has been down by the letter. At least in most cases.
