Document Description
Mendocino County proposes to expand the Mendocino County Jail in Ukiah, CA. The proposed facility expansion includes construction of 90 new maximum security beds in three pods with one recreation yard in each pod, a classroom, a visitors' center, and a medical exam/procedure room. This expansion is in response to CA's legislation requiring shifted responsibilities from its overcrowded and expensive state prison system to the counties. This reform eliminates the practice of returning technical parole violators to state prison and designates a series offenses that are now punishable by jail sentences rather than prison sentences. AB 109 and AB 117 enables CA to close the revolving door of inmates cycling in and out state prison.
