To Make the Condemned Inmate Transfer Program Permanent, the California Department of Corrections Has Asked.


SACRED HALLOWS, CA – Condemned Inmate Transfer Program (CITP) regulations were proposed this week by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

Prop. 66, an amendment to California’s Penal Code approved by voters in November 2016, authorized a two-year pilot experiment beginning on January 29, 2020, and ending on January 29, 2022, during which time death row inmates were redistributed to prisons across the state.

All those given the death penalty in California must endeavor to compensate their victims in accordance with Proposition 66.

In addition, for those given the death penalty, Prop. 66 raised the restitution deduction from 50% to 70%.

The CITP resulted in the relocation of 101 death row inmates from San Quentin State Jail to other facilities, including the relocation of 10 inmates from the Central California Women’s Facility to other housing units inside the prison.

The CITP would be made permanent and required under the proposed regulations issued by CDCR.

CDCR claims that transferring death row inmates to other prisons is in line with its transition to a “behavior-based system where incarcerated people are housed based on their individual case factors” and will eventually end the practice of segregating death row inmates solely on the basis of their sentence.

CDCR also stated that no one would be resentenced as a result, and that “everyone would be housed according to their specific case elements in appropriate custody-level prisons.”

In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, CDCR has announced that it will host a public hearing on March 8 and receive public comments from January 20 through March 8.
