NORCO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger toured a prison for low-level offenders and drug addicts Tuesday while campaigning for an $11 billion reform and building package that he says will alleviate severe overcrowding at the state’s 33 prisons. The governor toured parts of the California Rehabilitation Center and met with Warden Guillermina Hall before speaking with reporters in the prison yard. He was accompanied by Assemblyman Todd Spitzer, R-Orange, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Secretary James Tilton. The prison, which sits on a hilltop below the snowcapped San Bernardino Mountains about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles, was built for 2,300 prisoners but now holds 4,500. A gym that was meant for rehabilitation and job training now holds 300 metal, double-decked bunk beds, while 335 inmates are on a waiting list for substance abuse programs there. Schwarzenegger said such overcrowding leads to California’s 70 percent recidivism rate because inmates are not given adequate job training and addiction counseling. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

There’s no room for rehabilitation in some of these facilities,” he said. “Here, they’re doing the best job but they will all tell you if they had more room, more beds available … they’d be able to do a better job.” California’s prisons were designed for 100,000 inmates but hold nearly twice that number. The overcrowding is the subject of three separate lawsuits filed in federal courts throughout Northern California.
