Every couple of years, the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) revises California's Title 15 and 24 regulations which set standards for the hundreds of local adult detention facilities across all 58 counties. This includes adult jails, temporary holding facilities, and court holding facilities. The standards cover everything from family visits to solitary confinement to nutrition.
The revision process has started up again and our coalition is working to make sure a diverse set of voices is at the table and heard! Right now, you can participate in the process to improve jail conditions in two important ways:
Apply to serve on the Adult Titles 15 and 24 Regulations Revision Executive Steering Committee (ESC). The application is simple, and we are here to answer questions and/or review your personal statement. Please email me at email@example.com if you apply so we can track applications from allies.
- The ESC makes important decisions about the Titles 15 and 24 Regulations revisions and sends final recommendations to the BSCC Board to be approved.
- The ESC meetings will be in Sacramento with travel/accommodation expenses covered by the BSCC. The first ESC meeting is planned for late 2019 with a follow-up meeting in early to mid-2020.
