When a series of strong hurricanes battered the U.S., four Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility (RJDCF) officers pooled their personal resources and time to answer the cries for help. They traveled to Florida in the wake of Hurricane Irma, rolled up their sleeves and helped residents save their homes from further damage.
The San Diego County Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Task Force with the assistance of DAPO Seaport GPS Unit, Richard J. Donovan’s Crisis Response Team, U.S. Marshal Service, San Diego Sheriff and Probation Departments checked on sex offender compliance in a large sweep on Aug. 17.
Calipatria State Prison (CAL) served as the training ground for various Crisis Response Teams (CRTs) from five institutions on July 15. Centilena State Prison, CAL, Ironwood State Prison, Chuckawalla Valley State Prison and RJ Donovan Correctional Facility CRTs conducted a joint training exercise at CAL.
Several correctional officers are recovering after they were injured by inmates in three separate incidents on the same day at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility.
Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility (RJDCF) staff, the local California Correctional Peace Officers Association Chapter, and USE Credit Union recently raised funds to commission a plaque at the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. The plaque honored more than 130 armed services veterans who currently work at RJDCF.
