California Correctional Center - Mission Statement

The primary mission of the California Correctional Center (CCC) is to receive, house, and train minimum-custody inmates for placement into one of the institution's 18 Northern California conservation camps.  Working collaboratively with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, these camps are strategically located throughout the north state to provide fire suppression hand crews, as well as an organized labor force for public conservation projects and other emergency response needs of the State.  Services provided through the conservation camp program historically amount to many millions of dollars in value to the public.  Work projects associated with conservation camps support municipal, county, State, and federal government agencies, including schools, parks, cemeteries, and public recreation areas.

The secondary mission of CCC is to provide meaningful work, training, and education programs for inmates who do not meet the criteria for assignment to a conservation camp.  These alternative assignments include academic and vocational trade programs, facility maintenance jobs, food service positions, and other facility support assignments.

CCC offers a wide assortment of positive leisure-time activities, including numerous self-help improvement programs, such as literacy, addiction recovery, veterans' affairs, religious services, athletic programs, and Page Turners Anonymous.
