In 1987, the Norton Correctional Facility was opened. The facilities were previously used as a Tuberculosis Sanatorium, a State Hospital, and also as an Alcohol Treatment Center. In 1987, the first 24 minimum-custody inmates arrived at NCF. Since that time, a living unit was built and housing accommodations increased. We now house up to 849 residents at our Central Unit in Norton and 128 in Stockton (East Unit).
