Document Description
Under the Public Safety and Offender Rehabilitation Services Act of 2007, several institutions, including Northern State Prison (NKSP), have been designated to receive additional beds through new housing construction. As the lead agency, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is proposing to provide housing for additional inmates at NKSP. Implementation of the proposed project would result in the construction of approximately a 35-acre, semi-autonomous reception center for male inmates. This facility would consist of five celled housing units, program support and rehabilitative services buildings; healthcare facilities; visiting area; and multi-purpose support buildings.
