Assemblymember Salas Announces Opening of Community Correctional Facilities (CCF)


BAKERSFIELD - Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D- Bakersfield) and representatives from the City of Shafter and the Association of California Cities Allied with Public Safety (ACCAPS) will announce the operational opening of the Shafter Community Correctional Facility (CCF) and the upcoming opening of the Delano CCF. Following the announcement, a tour of the Shafter CCF will be offered.

“Putting these empty Community Correctional Facilities back in operation will bring more jobs, strengthen our local economy and help keep our streets safe,” said Assemblymember Salas.  “Through this hard-fought collaboration, we are able to keep prisoners behind bars and help alleviate the statewide prison crisis” concluded Assemblymember Salas.

Shafter CCF will open its doors for inmates December 17, 2013. Like Shafter, the City of Delano has signed a contract with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to open the Delano Community Correctional Facility in early January. Since taking office, Salas has worked diligently to reopen Community Correctional Facilities and met with legislative leadership, state departments, stakeholders, and statewide officials to make the case.
