Facilities[edit]

The institution is broken up into three (3) facilities: North Facility, Central Facility and South Facility. All offer their own programs to the inmate/prisoner population. As of March 2012, the facility's total population was 5,684, or more than of 171.6 percent of its design capacity of 3,312.[1]

The South Facility dates back to 1946, when it was used as "Camp Center" and administered by San Quentin State Prison. Five years later in 1951, the Central Facility opened, and in 1958 the Northern Facility opened. By 1984, an additional dormitory was added to the Central Facility. Three more dormitories were added in 1996, two more to the Northern Facility and one to the Southern Facility.

The Correctional Training Facility covers 680 acres (280 ha). As of 2006/2007, there is a total number of 1,643 staff with an annual budget of US$150 million.
