Corrections and Rehabilitation

The mission of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is to enhance public safety through safe and secure incarceration of offenders, effective parole supervision, and rehabilitative strategies to successfully reintegrate offenders into communities. These strategies include providing safe and secure detention facilities for adults and juveniles, educational opportunities, services such as food, clothing, health care, direct supervision, surveillance, and when necessary apprehension of the state's parolee population. The CDCR is organized into 12 programs: Corrections and Rehabilitation Administration; Corrections Standards Authority; Juvenile Operations; Juvenile Education, Vocations, and Offender Programs; Juvenile Parole Operations; Juvenile Health Care Services; Adult Operations; Adult Parole Operations; Board of Parole Hearings; Community Partnerships; Adult Education, Vocations, and Offender Programs; and Correctional Health Care Services.

The proposed budget was constructed first by computing the workload budget funding level. From the workload budget, adjustments are made to reflect specific policy adjustments and reductions, including budget-balancing reductions. With these adjustments, the Governor's Budget includes $11.4 billion ($10.3 billion General Fund and $1.1 billion other funds) for CDCR. This reflects an increase of $646.7 million ($172.4 million General Fund) or six percent over the revised 2007-08 budget. Change Table DCR-01 illustrates the major changes proposed to the CDCR in the Governor's Budget.
