Local IFC Survey

Recently, the Statewide IFC sent out a survey to the local IFC contacts on record with CDCR.  The responses have been mixed, however, it has allowed the SIFC to obtain a list of contacts for the active IFC’s.  If your IFC has not received a survey from the SIFC, please contact the SIFC at

Here are the results of the survey: Local IFC Survey
