Correctional Services Transportation Bureau (CST) is the largest provider of prisoner transportation in the United States. CST headquarters is located adjacent to Men’s Central Jail, and a north county satellite facility is located at the Pitchess Detention Center. A significant component of CST is the Statewide Detail, which transports more prisoners throughout the State of California than any other Sheriff’s Department. The average daily number of inmates transported by CST to and from court, and between custody facilities, is approximately 2,900 per day. CST also provides court ordered transport to medical facilities, hemodialysis centers, and funerals. Additional specialized transport is provided for Grand Juries, juries, high security inmates, celebrity inmates, wheelchair inmates and Departmental events.
