More About Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility (LCDRF)
Located in Santee, the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility (LCDRF) serves as the primary point of intake for women prisoners in San Diego County.

The facility opened in August 2014, replacing the old Las Colinas Detention Facility and is staffed by approximately 278 sworn employees and 143 professional staff members. With the new facility comes the implementation of new operational philosophies designed specifically for the female demographic.
LCDRF offers educational, behavioral and vocational programming for women, including restaurant management, sewing and landscaping.

With improved facilities and academic/pre-employment classes, reentry services are another emphasis of LCDRF. Inmates will leave better prepared for successful reintegration to the community, lowering the chance of reoffending.

Excerpts from Interview

“Earlier research would say that people don’t change…but skills and training and support systems all factor heavily if someone is to be successful…”

“For the first time in their lives the women have hope…”

“80% of females are incarcerated because of substance abuse…they need resources in the community when they are released.”
