§ 3075.2. Releases.
(a) Day of release.
(1) Inmates, except as otherwise provided by applicable law and regulations, shall be released on their scheduled release date. Inmates shall not be retained beyond their discharge date.
(b) Release Instructions.
(1) Notification of registration requirements:
(A) An inmate required to register pursuant to Penal Code sections 290 or 457.1 or Health and Safety Code section 11590 shall be notified of the requirement before being released from custody.
(B) Such inmates shall complete a SS Form 8047, Notice of Registration Requirement, acknowledging notification of the requirement.
(2) Reporting instructions for inmates being released to parole, except for inmates released to non-revocable parole as provided in section 3505:
(A) The CDCR Form 611 (Rev. 8/12), Release Program Study, which is incorporated by reference; the CDCR Form 1515 (Rev. 04/14), Notice and Conditions of Parole, which is incorporated by reference, the CDCR Form 1515-Addendum (Rev. 04/19), Special Conditions of Parole, which is incorporated by reference, and reporting instructions, shall be explained to the inmate at least 45 days before their scheduled release to parole or, if less than 45 days remain as a result of a change in the inmate's legal status, as soon as possible.
(B) The CDCR Form 611 shall specify a date, time, place and official to whom a newly released inmate shall report.
(C) Parolees designated as the highest control or highest risk classification shall report to their assigned parole unit on the first working day following release or within two calendar days from release, as instructed by a parole agent. Under no circumstances shall parolees designated as the highest control or highest risk classification be granted a delay in reporting to their assigned parole unit.
(D) Authorized delay in reporting for cases not designated as the highest control or highest risk classification.
1. Any delay in reporting to an assigned parole unit upon release from incarceration shall be case conferenced with a unit supervisor for approval. Parolees released from incarceration shall report to their assigned parole unit and any delay in reporting shall only be approved in extenuating circumstances, on a case-by-case basis, when the circumstances surrounding the release prevents the parolee from reporting in a timely manner and are beyond their control (e.g., parolee cannot report to the assigned parole unit as instructed due to the distance between the release location and the assigned parole unit). The unit supervisor should only authorize the amount of time reasonably necessary to allow the parolee to report to the assigned parole unit. Under no circumstances shall the delay in reporting be authorized for more than seven calendar days from the parolee's scheduled reporting date.
(3) Notice and conditions of parole requirements, except for inmates released to non-revocable parole.

(B) The parole agent shall request the parolee sign the CDCR Form 1515, and the CDCR Form 1515-Addendum after explaining the form(s) to the parolee. If the parolee refuses to sign the CDCR Form 1515 or CDCR Form 1515-Addendum, the parole agent shall attempt to resolve the issue. If the parolee continues to refuse to sign the CDCR Form 1515 or CDCR Form 1515-Addendum, the parole agent shall note the refusal in the signature block of the CDCR Form 1515 or CDCR Form 1515-Addendum and advise the parolee that the conditions of parole are imposed regardless of the signature.
(C) If an interstate cooperative parolee, as defined in section 3000, refuses to sign conditions of parole, this shall be considered behavior requiring retaking and reported to the state from which the parolee was sent, with a recommendation that the offender be returned to the sending state.
(D) Any special conditions of parole imposed by the department shall be related to the inmate's commitment offense or to conduct that may reasonably lead to future criminal behavior.
(E) When a department-imposed special condition no longer applies to a parolee, a unit supervisor or higher level staff may remove or modify any but the following department-imposed special conditions:
1. A prohibition on the use of alcoholic beverages pursuant to Penal Code section 3053.5 and 15 CCR 3901.9.4(b).
2. A requirement to participate in psychiatric treatment, unless parole outpatient clinic staff have recommended, in writing, that the treatment be discontinued.
(F) Within five days after verbally requiring or prohibiting specific behavior of a parolee, staff shall give the parolee written confirmation of such instructions.
(4) Notice of non-revocable parole requirements:
(A) Inmates who are approved for non-revocable parole shall have a CDCR Form 1515 and, if applicable, a CDCR Form 1515-Addendum effectively communicated to them at least 45 days prior to their scheduled release to parole, or as soon as possible if less than 45 days prior to release remain. The CDCR Form 1515 and the CDCR Form 1515-Addendum shall document the offender's understanding of requirements including, but not limited to, the following:

3. Obligation to pay outstanding restitution balances while on non-revocable parole.
4. Search and seizure requirements pursuant to Penal Code section 3067.
(5) Reporting instructions and notice of conditions of release for inmates released to Postrelease Community Supervision as provided in section 3079:
(A) The CDCR Form 611 (Rev. 8/12), Release Program Study; and the CDCR Form 1515-CS (Rev. 08/12), Notice and Conditions of Postrelease Community Supervision, which is incorporated by reference, and any additional reporting instructions or conditions received by the supervising county shall be explained to the inmate at least 45 days before their scheduled release date or, if less than 45 days remain as a result of a change in the inmate's legal status, as soon as possible.
(B) The CDCR Form 611 shall specify, at minimum, a place and official to whom a newly released inmate shall report.
(c) Release Clearances.
(1) Before release, an inmate shall be provided a CDC Form 162 (Rev. 1/66), Release Clearance, to obtain the signature indicating the release clearance of the facility officials as designated thereon, and return the form to the facility's receiving and release office.
(2) The original CDC Form 122 (Rev. 12/85), Property Receipt-Release, which is completed by receiving and release staff, shall be provided to the inmate before release.
(3) At the time of release, the inmate shall be presented a CDCR Form 102 (Rev. 08/19), Release Statement, which is hereby incorporated by reference, to sign acknowledging receipt of any California identification card, medical card, debit card, cash, checks, transportation voucher, and clothing or any combination thereof. Failure by the inmate to sign the CDCR Form 102 shall not be justification for withholding either the inmate's release allowance or any trust account funds as described in Subsection 3075.2(d) and 3075.2(d)(1).
(d) Release Allowances. A release allowance is a sum of money intended for the rehabilitative purpose of assisting in an inmate/parolee's reintegration into society, and shall only be provided to an inmate/parolee who is released from a CDCR Institution/Community Correctional Facility to the direct supervision of a parole agent in the community, is placed on non-revocable parole, is released to Postrelease Community Supervision, is released to an alternative custody program pursuant to 15 CCR § 3078, et seq., is released upon completion of a term of imprisonment to local law enforcement as a result of a detainer or hold, is released to the custody and supervision of the Department of State Hospitals, is released to a detainer or hold pursuant to commitment proceedings as a sexually violent predator (Welfare and Institutions Code, Article 4, Section 6600), or is discharged from the jurisdiction of the CDCR. Except as stipulated below, inmates/parolees shall receive the release funds specified in Penal Code (PC) Section 2713.1, for six months or more served in a CDCR Institution/Community Correctional Facility. Inmates/parolees serving less than six months in a CDCR Institution/Community Correctional Facility shall be given a prorated daily rate for each day, or fraction of a day, in custody up to the amount specified in PC 2713.1 utilizing the formula:
Release funds per the amount specified in PC 2713.1 divided by 182.5 days (six months) equals the daily rate rounded to two decimal places.
The cost of the following items shall be deducted from the inmate's release allowance in connection with the inmate's release:
Release apparel not previously purchased by the inmate or inmate's designee.
Any transportation costs paid by the state.
Clothing and public transportation, if required, shall not be denied due to an insufficient release allowance.
Parolees who willfully abscond shall forfeit any remaining release allowance otherwise due to them. Parolees placed in custody and released
from county jail as a result of a parole violation are not eligible for CDCR release allowance.
(1) A release allowance shall not be provided to an inmate released to the custody of the federal government or another state unless the inmate is released from custody and available for parole supervision in California or a state under the interstate compact (Article 3 (commencing with Section 11175) and Article 3.5 (commencing with Section 11180) of Chapter 2 of Title 1 of Part 4 of the Penal Code)). Inmates released to the custody and supervision of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service and awaiting a deportation hearing date are not entitled to receive a release allowance.
(2) Inmates erroneously received into CDCR and ultimately transferred back to the county jail to serve county jail commitment pursuant to PC Section 1170(h), are not eligible to receive a release allowance.
(3) The Department shall load the release funds to a debit card unless such loading is not possible due to network connectivity, at which point the Department will issue a check disbursement. In instances where an inmate is eligible for release funds specified in PC 2713.1, and when combined with the balance of the inmate's trust account the total is less than or equal to $1,000, the release funds and inmate trust account balance will be loaded to the same debit card. In instances where the inmate's trust account balance added to the release funds specified in PC 2713.1 exceeds $1,000, the release funds will be disbursed by debit card, and the entire inmate trust account balance will be disbursed by check. Inmate trust account balances will not be split between a debit card and check.
(4) Division of Juvenile Justice (formerly the California Youth Authority) wards confined in department facilities, and released:
(A) Within the State shall be given up to $10 cash in addition to transportation expenses and, if necessary, clothing which shall not exceed $20 in value.
(B) To independent placement may receive no more than $25 cash.
(e) Transportation Arrangements.
(1) An inmate's transportation upon release shall be arranged by the facility, unless a private party has contacted the facility at least three days before the inmate's scheduled release, has offered to provide transportation, and the facility has approved the arrangement.
(f) Exonerated Inmates.
(1) In addition to any other payment to which he or she is entitled to by law, each person who is exonerated shall be paid the sum specified in PC Section 3007.05(d).
(2) The CDCR Form 102 (Rev. 08/19), Release Statement, Section I, shall have the Exonerated checkbox marked.
(3) Due to limits described in Section 3075.2(d)(3), the payment of the allowance to the exonerated individual will be by check.
