San Francsico Jail

San Francisco Jail

David Wong is running for Sheriff of San Francisco.  He has exclusive ideas to develop working rehabilitating programs for San Francisco County Jail prisoners.  The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation conducted a evaluation and found San Francisco to have one of the highest rates of recidivism in California at 78.3 % return to prison within 3 years, yet San Mateo County and Alameda County Sheriff’s Department is below the state average rate of recidivism.San Francisco County operates eight jails, with approximately 55,000 people booked annually.

David Wong would like to modernize the San Francisco Jails and make it easy for the public to locate prisoners with an online inmate locator and an automated phone line that can give you the location of your family and friends that are housed in the jail.  He has many ideas to modernize the sheriff;s department to save on costs, to be more effective with the public, provide a better service to the public and to have effective rehabilitation programs for the prisoners.

Until I am elected as Sheriff of San Francisco I have decided to make this webpage on the San Francisco Jail to help you with information and make it easier on you. [Scroll Down]

Information on San Francisco Jails, the newest San Francisco jail complex is not located in San Francisco, but in an unincorporated part of San Mateo County between Pacifica and San Bruno. This jail opened in 2006 and is named County Jail #5. This jail replaced the former County Jail #3, which at the time of closing was the oldest operating county jail west of the Mississippi. The building stands vacant, and will be demolished. Just to the west of CJ#5 is the older CJ#6, which opened in 1989.

In 1994, San Francisco’s most modern San Francisco Jail was the one located near the Hall of Justice at 425 7th Street.  It opened in 1994, the complex is actually two jails. This main complex jail is a “direct supervision facility that has become a national model for program-oriented prisoner rehabilitation.” The second part, which acts as the main intake and release facility for the city.  This jail was praised by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Allan Temko as “a stunning victory for architectural freedom over bureaucratic stupidity.” While in custody, prisoners are afforded the opportunity to attend various classes that can earn credit towards a high school diploma.
