Ron Broomfield will no longer be the warden of San Quentin State Prison. He has been appointed director of the Division of Adult Institutions at CDCR.
Although his new position requires senate confirmation, he is almost certain to get it and his promotion is well deserved.
Broomfield has been warden at San Quentin since 2021. He has an impressive record of service, beginning as a correctional officer in 2001. Since that time, Broomfield has climbed the ladder to executive positions as correctional captain, associate warden, chief deputy administrator and warden.
This year, Broomfield was also appointed to co-chair Gov. Gavin Newsom’s advisory council for the design and implementation of the San Quentin Rehabilitation Center and the California Model.
The stage is now set for Director Broomfield and CDCR Secretary J. Macomber to create a new rehabilitative model based on four pillars: dynamic security, normalization, peer support and becoming a trauma-informed organization focused on the health and wellness of both staff and the incarcerated population.
Congratulations to Mr. Broomfield from the San Quentin News team. Good luck and much success in your new role!
