From our Inside California Jails Series …
The soon-to-be-built Indio Jail will focus on education, rehabilitation
There’s been a lot of talk about what lies ahead for Riverside County’s newest corrections facility. Although there will be several key modifications from the others, such as a video-only visitation policy between inmates, their friends and family members, another big difference revolves on rehabilitation.
Having extra bed space is good, according to county officials, but finding ways to keep inmates from reoffending (and winding back up in the system)- is even better.
The expanded Indio Jail will have a number of programs and and educational opportunities that are geared toward accomplishing that goal.
And while some detention centers offer little in the way of helping inmates advance life skills, the newest Riverside County Jail is hopeful that if their model is successful, others may follow their lead.
