Press Release from the CDC:

As a private institution dedicated to protecting California from the state’s most criminal advertising, the California Department of Corrections salutes the private security firms who have provided invaluable assistance to our colleagues in the U.S. military.

The advertisement is currently at liberty and it seems to have successfully readjusted to public life. However, the billboard will remain under surveillance by department staff to prevent recidivism and any potential lapse into its prior criminal behavior.

The California Department of Corrections is a private institution dedicated to the protection of the public through the alteration, rehabilitation and improvement of California’s most criminal advertising. Initiated in 1994, the department is operated by individuals who feel that California’s correctional facilities have been insufficiently managing the state’s most criminal elements.

For additional information on department programs and operations, please visit the CDC website at or email the Office of Communications at cdc [at] {esp. if you want a hirez photo, cause we here at the BLF didn’t take the photo -mrk}.

Congratulations to the CDC for another excellent improvment, check out more of the CDC’s award-winning advertising
