The mission of California State Prison, Sacramento (CSP SAC) is to serve the public by safely and humanely housing maximum and high-security offenders, as well as those requiring specialized mental health programming and high risk medical concerns.  CSP SAC provides rehabilitative opportunities through educational programming, vocational training, self-help programs and mental health treatment.  These rehabilitative programs are offered on all facilities as a part of CSP SAC’s commitment to public safety and rehabilitation.  The rehabilitative programs and services are essential to an individual’s transition from prison and successful reintegration back into the community.


CSP-SAC is primarily a Level IV institution, consisting of twenty- four (24) semi-autonomous 180 designed housing units and one (1) stand alone Administrative Segregation Unit all surrounded by a Lethal Electrified Perimeter Fence. There is also a Level I Minimum Support Facility (MSF). CSP-SAC has three of the four level of care identified by the Mental Health Services Delivery System, Correctional Clinical Case Management System, Enhanced Outpatient Program, and Mental Health Crisis Bed. CSP-SAC is on 882 acres, sharing this property with Folsom State Prison, Folsom Women’s Facility, and California Prison Industry Authority. In 2012, CSP-SAC was the first institution in California to achieve American Correctional Association accreditation with 98.6 percent score.


CSP-Sacramento is located adjacent to Folsom State Prison.  When it first opened in 1986, the prison was administered by the Folsom warden and was called New Folsom.  In October 1992, its name was changed to CSP-Sacramento, and was administered as a separate prison with its own warden.

Local Inmate Family Councils (IFC’s) are a gathering of family and friends of the incarcerated who meet regularly with Wardens to support visiting since keeping strong family connections with loved ones is a powerful rehabilitative tool. These IFC’s promote visiting by clarifying rules and regulations as well as discussing health, education, vocational training, packages, books, and related issues. For more information on connecting with a local IFC, please visit the Statewide IFC website.
