Sending money to three prisons has changed

As of Oct. 1, Folsom, Mule Creek and CSP-Sacramento are participating in a 90-day pilot program intended to streamline the process for sending checks and money orders to inmates. The new service allows for incoming inmate monies to be mailed to a secured centralized depository. The process for electronic fund transfers will remain the same for all prisons.

Folsom State Prison - Mission Statement

California's second oldest prison, Folsom State Prison (FSP), primarily houses Medium Security General Population Level II male inmates. Additionally, Folsom houses Minimum Security Level I male inmates within a minimum security facility located just outside of the main security perimeter. Folsom offers Rehabilitative programs, to include academic courses and career technical education, which are provided through Folsomís Greystone Adult School.

Under the administration of FSP, Folsom Womenís Facility (FWF) was activated in January 2013. This 403 bed stand-alone facility provides housing, rehabilitative and reentry programming, substance abuse treatment, and job training to the medium and minimum security female population. FWF is the northern most female facility in the State, allowing female offenders to maintain closer ties to family and relatives in the area.
