Laundry

HCCF LaundryLaundry is responsible for sorting, washing, drying and folding of all the inmate clothing and bedding issued at the Humboldt County Correctional Facility.  The laundry room is staffed twenty-four hours a day with a crew of three to four inmate workers.  A large volume of laundry is generated everyday as several housing units inmates exchange their clothing and bedding is issued.

 

Janitorial

Inmates from the Inmate Worker dorm are assigned to the numerous janitorial duties that are needed to maintain the facilities cleanliness.   Inmate janitors are available twenty-four hours a day in three shifts.  Each shift of inmate janitors cleans the hallways of the facility and may be assigned additional areas by correctional or facility staff.  Several inmates are assigned to floor care.  These inmates must first attend a class to learn the basics of stripping and waxing floors, as well as the proper operation of the equipment.

Cal-Trans

The Cal-Trans work program is a program that uses inmates housed in the Humboldt County Correctional Facility to work on projects outside the facility under the supervision of a correctional officer.  Projects are generally roadside projects and clean-ups along the counties highways.  California Department of Transportation funds this program and provides tools and a van for the transportation of inmates to the worksite.  Inmates are screened by facility staff before they are allowed to outside of the facility.
