Another view of the prison hospital

From Bob Walsh, writing at PacoVilla, a corrections blog.

The locals want to pretend that Stockton is the garden spot of central California and would be a somewhat larger version of Mayberry ONLY IF the prison (DVI) and DJJ facilities were not there. It’s not true of course. Stockton is a violent place. Much of the crime revolves around drugs and gangs. If you avoid the drug culture and it’s participants (which is not that hard) and the gang bangers and their wannabes (which is harder, but possible) your chance of becoming a serious crime victim is not much larger (if any) than that in any other major city.

Walsh, who I believe is also a local, has a little more here.
