California Correctional Institution (CCI)

When it originally opened in 1933, CCI housed female inmates. A 1952 earthquake closed the facility. It reopened in 1954 as a male institution. In 1985, the state built the first new maximum security facility in more than 100 years at CCI. The following year, the prison added a new medium custody facility.
