Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP) is a 300-acre (120 ha) Californian state prison located 5 miles north of Soledad, in Monterey County, California.
The prison consists of five yards: A, B, C, D, and E. Of the five, C is the most violent. The surrounding housing units hold level-4 and level-3 inmates, the two highest security rankings. E yard is a level-1 yard which houses, approximately, 200 inmates.
The inmates are segregated into five ethnic groups: southern Mexican, northern Mexican, white, black, and other (the last, including Asians and Native Americans). The whites and southern Mexicans have been waging war.
The prison had a gymnasium which, due to the prison's over-crowding, at one time had been converted into a dormitory but due to violence was shut down.
The prison also houses a Department of Mental Health Intermediate Treatment Program (Salinas Valley Psychiatric Program) to accommodate the psychological needs of inmates.
