Welcome to the

CSP ~ SAC  Inmate Family Council

 (New Folsom)



As a visitor to a California prison, it’s helpful to be informed of rules, regulations and the latest news. As a friend or family member of someone incarcerated in this state, it’s vital to make connections that support you and your loved ones.



The CSP~SAC IFC Website is here for you. We provide links, updated information, forms, CDCR Memos, and resources that enable you as a visitor at CSP~SAC  to access the information you need.




Please contact any IFC member by email or on-site during visiting hours with any suggestions, comments or questions.  You may also place your suggestions or comments in the locked IFC box located  in the lobby of Visitor Processing.   Notices are retrieved and addressed every month during our meetings.  Look for our  IFC bulletin boards in each of the visiting rooms.  They will provide you with current information including copies of our minutes and upcoming events.

This site is not a state-sponsored website. We are a volunteer organization, and are NOT part of the prison staff or administration.
