Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP)
Salinas Valley State Prison - Mission Statement
The mission of Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP) is to provide long-term housing and services for minimum and maximum custody male inmates.
Productivity and self improvement opportunities are provided for inmates through academic classes, work programs, religious and self-help groups. SVSP was constructed to meet the access requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). SVSP has been designated to house Level I and IV inmates. The housing of these inmates is accomplished on a Minimum Support Facility (MSF), two 270 design facilities and two 180 design facilities. SVSP also houses inmates who meet the criteria of the Department’s Disability Placement Program (DPP) excluding DVH, DPH and DPS. SVSP has a 100 cell standalone Administrative Segregation Unit (ASU) and a Correctional Treatment Center (CTC) where inmates receive professionally supervised health care beyond that normally provided in the community on an out patient basis. SVSP provides Correctional Clinical Case Management System (CCCMS), Enhanced Outpatient Program (EOP) and Mental Health Crisis Bed (MHCB) services.
SVSP contains a division of the Department of Mental Health (DMH) on grounds in the secured perimeter: Salinas Valley Psychiatric Program (SVPP). The SVPP is an intermediate care inpatient psychiatric program servicing primarily Level IV high security inmates who have a major mental disorder that has diminished their ability to function within the prison environment. SVPP has two stand alone treatment centers and four retrofitted 180 housing units.
