KTVU News report from March 19th 1968 by Claud Mann featuring an interview with Dianne Feinstein, who comments on a recent report about prison conditions in San Francisco. She explains that city prisons were found to be lacking in recreation, training, education and employment opportunities. She is recommending that city prisons be placed under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Department, allowing local police to focus on crime prevention and prisons to concentrate more on rehabilitation programs. Feinstein also refers to conditions in the women's unit as "deplorable."
