California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR)

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE'RE DOING

The CDCR is the largest State agency in total facility size, number of personnel, and percentage of the State’s general fund among all agencies under the purview of the Executive Branch. CDCR operates all State adult prisons and juvenile facilities, oversees a variety of community correctional facilities, and supervises all adult and juvenile offenders, including adults released to parole supervision. The CDCR vision is to end the causes and tragic effects of crime, violence, and victimization in our communities. The CDCR mission is to improve public safety through law enforcement that provides for the safe and secure incarceration of the State’s most serious and violent felons; and to provide parole supervision and develop and implement rehabilitative strategies to successfully reintegrate offenders back into their communities.



The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) recognizes the need for conservation and the efficient use of our resources. CDCR is committed to being good stewards of the earth’s natural resources and reducing impacts to the environment; reducing the cost of doing business; serving as examples for offenders to follow when they transition back to their communities; and assisting in making communities healthier.



CDCR’s Energy and Sustainability Section develops, manages, and provides oversight for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects and conservation strategies for utility services, such as water, sewer, natural gas and electricity to reduce energy, water usage, and associated costs. CDCR performs a wide variety of project management, consultative, analytical, and research-oriented tasks in resource conservation and development. CDCR continuously seeks new and innovated opportunities to contribute to the State of California’s energy and sustainability goals and mandates.
