Rehabilitative Technology Solutions

The Division of Rehabilitative Programs (DRP) continues to make rehabilitation and education beneficial for the incarcerated individuals while maintaining cost efficiency for the state of California. One solution is through technology. Implementing new technology in California institutions creates unique challenges including physical space, location, security, connectivity, firewalls, and funding. DRP has developed a way to break those barriers by implementing new initiatives over the last couple years.

DRP is using the following technology:

Automated Rehabilitation Catalog And Information Discovery application

The ARCAID application is a self-service search platform that is utilized to find a variety of critical
services. This application will serve as a primary search engine for the criminal justice-involved
population to find services throughout California.

This application also presents available jobs and critical documents that could benefit those who are criminal justice involved. A key benefit of the ARCAID application is to assist as a vital resource for those releasing from incarceration out into society and to ultimately serve as a nexus in reducing recidivism by providing access to the services they need to succeed.

The ARCAID application is available in desktop and mobile viewing options.
