Progress! The new Inmate Locator feature on the CDCR website is a victory for the victims of crime.
Until now, we haven't had an easy way to find out what was going on inside of a prison. Knowing the location and status of a criminal who has caused your family such pain is simply immeasurable, my family is experiencing and feeling the value of it right now.
We can now easily look up what facility they're in, the next parole hearing date, and even whether the inmate has applied for an early hearing or not by simply typing a name.
It’s a little piece of mind that we didn’t have before and that is a victory."
