The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is required to biennially review minimum standards for adult local detention facilities and make appropriate revisions pursuant to Penal Code section 6030, subdivision (a).
The BSCC has a longstanding practice of developing regulations and recommending revisions in partnership with stakeholders. This method of regulation development results in meaningful and attainable minimum standards and ensures regulations are rooted in evidence-based and best practices.
On April 11, 2019, the Board approved the development of an Executive Steering Committee to begin the regulations review and revision process. This webpage will provide a chronological list of links, information, and updates as they become available.
