North Kern State Prison (NKSP)

NKSP has a general population medium custody facility and a minimum support facility with a ten-bed Level I firehouse. The general population portion of the institution focuses on providing educational/vocational opportunities to inmates equipping them with skills which will aid them in finding gainful employment upon their release from prison. The Reception Center currently processes incoming inmates usually within a 90 day period. After compiling the inmate’s criminal records, life histories, medical and psychological histories, and social relationships, NKSP staff determines the inmate’s classification score and institutional placement. NKSP is also the site where the Central / Southern California Transportation Hub for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is located and operates from.
