At-a-Glance: Corrections Realignment Progress Corrections realignment addressed two issues: a US Supreme Court mandate to reduce overcrowding in CA prisons; and the need to lower state spending in all areas to balance the state budget.

202% –137.5% In 2009 the US Supreme Court mandated that CA prisons reduce their level of overcrowding to 137.5% of capacity. That’s a reduction of 40,000 inmates by December 2013.

Health Care for Offenders To address prisoner health care concerns, the state has invested more than $1 billion in new health care facilities and new treatment space, including a 1,722-bed facility that will open in July 2013.


Realignment reduces prison population Realignment reduced the total inmate population (including firecamps and private facilities) from 162,576 in September 2011 to 132,512 in February 2013 – slightly over 30,000 inmates. During the same period, it halved the parole population from 126,806 to 63,632. The effects of realignment won’t be fully realized until full implementation in 2015.

Provisions of Realignment   All state prison felons will continue to serve

their entire sentence in state prison.   All felons convicted of current or prior serious
