Case Number I2016-0112

Recommendation #5 To: Corrections and Rehabilitation, Department of

CDCR should train all parole division supervisors who oversee employees with state vehicles regarding the department's policy for the proper usage and storage of state vehicles.

Agency Response From April 2017

We requested that CDCR provide a copy of the comprehensive training plan it identified in January 2017. In April 2017, CDCR informed us that its comprehensive training plan consisted of an email sent to its employees that reissued the existing CDCR policy about state vehicles. CDCR also required employees to sign a roster indicating that they had completed the "training" after they read the policy. Further, CDCR provided us with a copy of the email it sent requiring employees to review the policy and with reports indicating that all active employees completed the training. As the existing policy outlines the proper usage and storage of state vehicles, we deemed the recommendation as fully implemented.
