Default Are transfer units being phased out to become regular units?

I've heard rumor that the transfer facilities might be changed to become regular units and not have the 2 year limit. Does anyone know anything about this?

That sounds like another rumor. If something like that were to happen, I'd guess it would need legeslative action, and nothing like that has happened this time around.

It would take a LOT more than just legislative intervention. State Jail designs are the same as transfer facilities and the design was consistent with the Final Consent Decree in Ruiz back in December 1992. In order to house someone there for more than two years, there would have to be a lot of retrofitting that simply is not feasible...

What you will likely see is some of the State Jail facilities going back to simply being State Jail facilities instead of the hybrid SJF/ID facility set-up as has existed for more than a decade...although this will be true moreso on the women's side of the equation than on the men's side since there are not as many beds open for women right now to absorb the loss of the beds from the pending closure of Dawson.

Hubby heard the same about Garza East. I was somehow hoping that would not be the case.

This too shall pass, my love... Isn't that what you always said?
