Offender Walks Away from Residential Alternative Custody Facility

SACRAMENTO – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for an offender who walked away from a residential home in the Alternative Custody Program (ACP).

Jaimee Hammer, who was participating in the Female Offender Treatment and Employment Program (FOTEP), walked away from the facility on Dahlia Avenue in El Monte on Oct. 24 at approximately 11:30 p.m. Agents from CDCR’s Special Service Unit are searching for Hammer, and notification has been made to local law enforcement and the California Highway Patrol.

ACP is a voluntary program developed for eligible offenders that allows them to serve up to the last 12 months of their sentence in the community in lieu of confinement in state prison. Eligible participants may be housed in a private residence, a transitional care facility or a residential drug or other treatment program.

Hammer, 28, is 5’ 2” tall with brown hair and blue eyes. She was received by CDCR from Los Angeles County in May 2016 with a four-year sentence for vehicle theft and evading a police officer while driving recklessly.

If anyone has information about or knowledge of the location of this individual they should immediately contact 911or FOTEP at (916) 464-2724.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
