Northern Region CPAT Teams for the CDCR Division of Adult Parole Operations from Bakersfield, Fresno, Stockton, Alameda, Santa Clara, and Sacramento recently converged at the California Prison Industrial Authority facility in Sacramento for the first ever all-staff meeting and training.
This accomplishment is highlighted by the fact that for the first time since 2011 NR CPAT is fully staffed.
A review of the accomplishments for 2018 was conducted, positives highlighted (achieving full staffing, training completed, taskforce MOUs), and personal achievements recognized (supervisory promotions, taskforce assignments).
Moving forward in 2019, the meeting’s focus was on reducing the parolee at large rate, consistency, communications, image, professionalism and relevancy.
