Riverside Correctional Facility

Opened in June 2004, the facility was designed and operates exclusively for the female population of the PDP.
RCF operates on the principles of direct supervision and unit management. Each unit management group includes a lieutenant, who serves as unit manager, and a sergeant, as well as treatment and clerical staff. Designed by the Vitetta Group, the three-story facility is comprised of a 143,000-square-foot housing building and a support building sized about 75,000 square feet. Each floor includes a recreation area, dispensary, multipurpose area, and food-delivery area. The popular design with precast cells is similar to that of CFCF. Inmates are housed two per cell, 64 or 128 per pod. The facility includes administrative and staff offices, classrooms for educational, computer, and vocational training, an intake and discharge area, and a gymnasium, in addition to areas for medical and behavioral health treatment, social service, group meeting, recreational, food-service, and maintenance areas, and law and leisure libraries. The medical and behavioral health offices were furnished fully and include a nurses' station, pharmacy, lab, dental, examination, x-ray, and emergency treatment rooms, as well as areas for AIDS counseling, records, equipment, and other storage.
