The department currently operates a 276-bed facility located in downtown Napa.
A new 72-bed re-entry facility is slated to complete construction and open by January of 2020. This facility will provide evidence-based programs to successfully integrate offenders back into the community through a combination of work, programs, and educational opportunities.
