Default CDCR Sensitive Needs Yard (SNY) Q&A

Please use this thread for all general questions regarding Sensitive Needs Yards (SNY) in California.


Sensitive Needs Yards, or SNY, are housing blocks designated for inmates with custody needs related to security. Inmates are typically housed in SNY blocks because of a threat to their safety if housed on mainline yards.
SNY is not punitive-- it is not "the hole", segregation or used for disciplinary means.

SNY inmates can include: elderly or those with health issues, those with high profile charges, former gang members, former law enforcement, or any inmate who feels and can demonstrate a need for a protective environment.

SNY blocks offer the same level of programming as mainline blocks (education, vocational, self-help, religious services, employment) as well as privileges according to their specific level (phones, yard, commissary, packages, visiting and Family Visiting programs).

SNY are also subject to the same disciplinary actions as mainline yards (write-ups, lock downs, ad-seg, transfers).

Where and What Level
Avenal, Level 2
CCI, Tehachapi, Levels 1-4
CHCF, Stockton
Corcoran, Level 3
CSP, LA County, Level 4
California Training Facility, Level 2
Calipatria, Level 4
Centinela, Level 3
High Desert, Level 4
Ironwood, Level 3
Kern Valley, Level 4
Mule Creek, Level 3
Pleasant Valley, Level 3
RJ Donovan, Level 3
Salinas Valley, Level 4
SATF, Level 3
Sierra Conservation Center, Level 3
Valley State, Level 2

As CDCR needs change, so do the locations and levels of SNY housing.
Please PM a moderator to update or correct facility and level information
as these changes occur. Thank you!

Are those that are labeled level 3 only level 3, or are they level 1-3? Are there really only 3 level two sny prisons in California?

The information below was taken from the homepage of each facility or updated as yards have flipped over the last year.

If they have multiple Levels, they are listed. There are nine Level 3 SNY listed below.

Thanks. We were looking to see where level two might be placed. I was hoping he'd be closer to home.

There are a lot of big changes happening in CDCR right now and it wouldn't surprise me to see some yards flip as they happen. I hope he's able to be moved closer. I know what a blessing that can be.

CDCR doesn't generate a list. What they do create is a monthly compstat report. It's a PITA to read, but it's the most accurate thing we have. You'll want to scan the report and look for populations marked for SNY and Level 2.
