Calipatria, Prison in California

Calipatria, Prison In California

Calipatria State Prison (CAL) is a male-only state prison located in the city of Calipatria, in Imperial County, California. CAL opened in January 1992, approximately 22 months before California State Prison, Centinela (the other state prison in Imperial County). A $1.5 million electrified fence, which could cause instantaneous death for escaping inmates and which was the first of its kind among California state prisons, was installed in November 1993. After a number of birds had died by electrocution, an ornithologist was hired to help redesign the fence and eliminate the problem.
