Sierra Concervation Center (SCC)- Jamestown, CA


Sierra Conservation Center- Mission Statement


The primary mission of the Sierra Conservation Center is to provide housing, programs and services for minimum and medium custody inmates. SCC is one of only two prisons in the state responsible for the training and placement of male inmates in the Conservation Camp Program. SCC administers 19 male camps located from Central California to the Mexican border.


Institution Details


SCC functions as the center for training staff and inmates in firefighting techniques. The prison is separated into two dormitory-type facilities for minimum and low-medium custody inmates and a separate high-medium custody facility.
Each of the 19 Conservation Camps is a self contained "prison without walls." The camps are sited in rural or wilderness areas for fire suppression. Inmates assigned to camps are dispatched to fight wild land fires and other emergencies when needed and a variety of community work projects.


Institution Statistics


Sierra Conservation Center was opened in 1965, and covers 420 acres. As of Fiscal Year 2005/2006 the following statistics apply:

***Magazines & Paperback Books can also be ordered, however they must come directly from the vendor. I often go to Barnes and Noble in my area and pick out magazines or books. They ship them for me to the prison at a reasonable cost.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Quarterly Packages:

The California Inmate Quarterly Package system allows you to send much-desired items to your incarcerated loved one. Each institution sets it’s own rules as to what items are allowed and prohibited and items vary by privilege groups. As a result, vendors therefore provide services to a limited amount of Facilities, Camps, CCF’s or the LA County Jail System. All Quarterly Packages are limited to a maximum weight of 30 Lbs. Nor can they exceed dimensions of 24” x 24” x 24”. All vendors list those institutions for which they provide goods and services and what privilege groups.

Special Packages:

Special Packages allow for the purchase of Electronics, Accessories, Musical Instruments, Under Garments and Clothing, Correspondence Courses, Legal Material and Faith Based Items. That would otherwise crowd a quarterly package beyond its allowed weight or dimensions. There is no limit to the amount of special packages allowed in a calendar year.

PLEASE CALL THE PRISON AND GET PRIOR APPROVAL FROM THE STAFF IN THE R&R DEPARTMENT BEFORE SENDING A SPECIAL PACKAGE. ALL PRISONS HAVE DIFFERENT RULES REGARDING SPECIAL PACKAGES.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Quarter = January 1st - March 31st

2nd Quarter = April 1st - June 30th

3rd Quarter = July 1st - September 30th

4th Quarter = October 1st - December 31st

Default SCC Family Visits Information

Some prisons are different, but here is some information that pertains to most California Prisons:

The visitor(s) shall adhere to all institutional procedures and departmental regulations while on institutions grounds. Participation in the Family Visiting Program is restricted to immediate family members, unless a legal foster relationship exists. Immediate family members are defined as legal spouse of the inmate and the inmate's legal stepchildren.

Required Documentation Needed for Each Family Visit:

Proof of marriage shall be established by the inmate’s assigned Correctional Counselor, prior to a family visit being approved. A certified marriage certificate shall be required and presented to the Family Visiting Officer prior to each visit. A marriage certificate is required for both stepparents and the inmate’s wife. No Photostat copies will be accepted.

Drivers license, DMV Identification Card, passport, USINS card, military I.D. or other piece of governmental identification. The inmate's brother, sister, children and grandchildren (minors and adults) must present birth certificates prior to each family visit. Grandparents must bring verification of relationship prior to the family visit. This can be done presenting the inmate's birth certificate and the inmate's parent's certified birth certificate (the grandparent's child) to show family lineage. An inmate’s minor children visiting without their natural mother, must be accompanied by an approved adult visitor. Who must present a written notarized approval from the minor child's natural parent or legal guardian.
All certificates must be obtained through the county recorder's office and must be embossed or have inked county seat.

Any person(s) visiting the Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) on a family visit, who needs narcotic medication, or life sustaining medication(s) or life sustaining apparatus, must have prior approval to participate in the family visiting program. Approval can be obtained by having your physician submit a letter to the CMO or SCC to explain the extent of your medical problem and be in approval of your overnight visit to the prison. Failure to have prior written approval will result in your visit being denied upon arrival at the institution.



A REMINDER: IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING WEAPONS, AMMUNITION, TEARGAS, ALCOHOL, CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES OR NARCOTICS INTO A PENAL INSTITUTION. NO SMOKING ALLOWED.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From our PTO member Cysreese:

My husband sends me the food list just in case I want to add or change something and so that I can send all paperwork together.

He sends the Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders. It has the amount of money you will send for the family visit, put an x where is states "these funds are to pay for food during a Family visit (FV) At the bottom you will sign and date it.

Family visit menu order form for the food. Then there is a white slip that has your husband's/son's name and CDC number and all those that will be visiting. It has the dates of the family visit. It also has on the paper two boxes for you to check. The first one says you will arrive as schedule between whatever times is on the paper and the second box says you will not arrive and to please cancel the visit.

He also sends a pink form which is his trust account withdrawal order form with his info and he signs and dates it. When I am done looking over everything I send it back to the address provided on the paper with all visitors names on it.

White form- Names with visitors on it and if you will be attending the FV.
Pink form-Trust fund paper
Yellow paper- Exemption Of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders.
White paper- Food menu

Attached is the 2010 SCC Staff Contact list. I want to thank PTO member luciana for doing all the work to get this list compiled. She had to extrapolate info from 3 different documents/lists and I know it was a huge undertaking.

She wanted me to say that she was very careful, but she's human, so there may be an error here or there.

Thanks again, luciana!

Your inmate must send you a visiting form (CDC 106). This form MUST be signed by your inmate before he sends it you you. Once you receive your visiting questionnaire, fill it out TRUTHFULLY and don't leave any questions blank.

Send your completed questionnaire to:


Attn: Visiting Sergeant
Sierra Conservation Center
5150 O'Byrnes Ferry Road
Jamestown, CA 95327


The average wait for a response is 4-8 weeks from the time your application is received by the visiting staff. In some cases, it takes longer than 8 weeks. I suggest calling the visiting department if your wait is longer than 8 weeks and find out if your application has been received.

They will
NOT tell you if you have been approved or disapproved over the phone. It is the responsibility of the inmate to relay that information to you. If you are APPROVED, the inmate will be notified. If you are DISAPPROVED, the inmate will be notified AND you will be mailed a written response with details of the denial.

Reasons for DISAPPROVAL include (but are not limited to):

  • Lying on your application
  • Being a Convicted Felon (you must have prior written approval from the warden before stepping on prison grounds)
  • Leaving Questions Blank
  • Having UNPAID tickets (of ANY kind)
  • Having Outstanding Warrants
  • Being on Active Parole/Probation (you will need prior approval from the Warden)
