The first inmates have been moved into the new “infill” facility at Mule Creek State Prison (MCSP), which was recently approved for occupancy after two years of construction.

For now, only a few inmates are being housed in the new facility after being moved from older portions of MCSP.

Over the next several months, more inmates from within MCSP as well as from other CDCR prisons will be moved into the new housing unit.

The $330 million, 60-acre facility ultimately will house 1,584 inmates in a dorm style setting and also include space for rehabilitation programs.

The new facility also is expected to employ 377 staff.
