Weekly Update 11/16/18

Contraband Interdiction Program:
Last Wednesday, a tour was conducted at the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in Corcoran in order to observe the Contraband Interdiction Program (CIP) Pilot Program at the entry points to the secured perimeter.  During our observations, the staff involved in conducting the inspections did so in an effective and efficient manner.  As expected, the process does create a slight delay for staff, but the trade off for deterring the introduction of contraband is well worth it.  During the early stages of this process, it appears the Department is going in the right direction in securing the institutions, and hopefully the hefty price tag associated with the program does not deter from expansion to other facilities.

Tours:
Due to the short week, no facility tours are scheduled.

Office Closure:
The CCSO office will close at noon on Wednesday, November 21st and will be closed for the day on Thursday, November 22nd and Friday November 23rd in honor of Thanksgiving Day.  Normal business hours will resume on Monday, November 26th.

However, if you need legal representation, please call 209.838.2940 and leave your name, contact information, and a brief summary of the adverse and when the hearing is to be held on the CCSO voicemail.  Once the message is received, someone will return your call by Monday, November 26, 2018.

The CCSO Office Staff and State Board of Directors send their wishes to all members and their families for a deliciously enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving Day.

CCSO Staff & State Board Wishes You a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving
