Help DRC prevent abuse and neglect


Help DRC prevent
abuse and neglect

DRC launched a project to investigate conditions at Adelanto Detention Center, the largest civil immigration detention center in California, in early 2018. We completed our investigation and issued a report on March 5. Our inspection found discrimination against people with disabilities. The detention center offers counter-therapeutic conditions that harm people with disabilities, and inadequate mental health and medical treatment. DRC’s investigators discovered underreporting of suicide attempts at Adelanto, hindering adequate public and government oversight. The report and our recommendations to address these abusive conditions may be found here.
