Adrian lives at the East Yard, which is a separate facility, so don’t go to the Central CIM address. If you use Google Maps and type “California Institution for Men” Google Maps sends you to the wrong location.
The correct address for Google Maps is East Facility Drive. The building is off Euclid in Chino at East Facility Drive (shown on the map as Merill- Merill is to the right, East Facility Drive to the left). Near East Facility Drive on Euclid is a cow/dairy farm and a small airport.
When on East Facility Drive (a long road that curves around) a field is on your left and houses toward the right. When you reach a stop sign, turn LEFT.
Go down the street and come to two short palm trees as a road divider. Turn LEFT at the palm trees into the parking lot area.

Arriving at the facility
Upon entering the main building present your ID to the officer on duty and say you are visiting T30064, Adrian Torres (they ask for the number first, then his name).
You hand over your ID to the guard and receive a printed page in return. Your ID will be returned to you when you leave.
You remove coats/jackets, any metal items and your shoes. You walk through the metal detector without your shoes (similar to going through airport security).
Any metal in your clothes prevents you from visiting Adrian. An item as small as a metal button on a pair of jeans can deny you access. If you are informed something is metal and not allowed through, or you are wearing the wrong color, your only choice is to leave and change clothes.
- Bring a back-up set of clothes in a permitted color. Black is always safe.
- Purchase a new clothing item at KMart, Walmart or Target
Local stores near CIM (according to google maps)
The Visiting Yard
Once through the main building, you are directed through two gates. Each gate must close before the next gate opens.
You walk up to the first table and give guards your printout, which identifies who you are visiting. The guards return the paper, and you move to the next table and show the inmates at the table your paper. You are assigned a picnic table and if you don’t know which picnic table, ask and the inmate walks you to the assigned table.
Adrian comes out and joins you at the picnic table. When Adrian arrives, you can walk back to the vending machines for soda and candy. If you walk a little bit further there is a building to the right and in the lobby are vending machines with entrees such as ribs or chicken wings (Adrian enjoys both). Then warm the food in the microwave (about 2 minutes per entree) and walk with Adrian back to the picnic table.
Enjoy your visit!
When you leave, you go back through the two gates and back into the main building. Only five visitors at a time may enter the building, you may have to wait a few minutes to enter. Hand the guard your paper and receive your ID back. You leave the facility knowing you brightened Adrian’s day.
