CDCR implementing its new gang management reforms

"Security Threat Group Identification, Prevention and Management" is now the department's official policy

Targeted News Service

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is now implementing a pilot program that will reduce long-term confinement in Security Housing Units (SHU) and overhaul the way gangs are managed. The "Security Threat Group Identification, Prevention and Management" pilot program was approved and certified by the Office of Administrative Law on October 18, 2012 and filed with the Secretary of State. It is now the department's official policy and enabled CDCR to begin conducting case-by-case reviews of inmates in segregated housing.

"The new gang management policy was developed with significant input from experts internally and throughout the nation and now includes prevention, interdiction and rehabilitation elements," Undersecretary of Operations Terri McDonald said. "This complex retooling of our gang management program requires considerable changes to state regulations and departmental policies and procedures. Implementing it as a pilot will improve the department's ability to incorporate the new changes," McDonald added.
