DOM (DEPARTMENT OPERATING MANUAL)
The DOM is the Department Operating Manual and is also available on the CDCR website. This shows how the Title 15 is implemented at every facility. It is published once per year, just like Title 15, and it is also updated periodically through the year. The DOM must follow the Title 15 and can’t be in conflict with it.
