BOP PPRS Prison Match™ is a 60-minute history (like your own physicians), once completed it implements appropriate prison matched data points based on:

  • Medical and Mental Healthcare needs based on the BOP CARE LEVELS I-IV Structure
  • BOP Psychology Treatment Programs, limited availability – security level dependant
  • Medication availability (~ 3000 different drugs), falls into 3 tiers;
    1. On Formulary – Available
    2. Non-Formulary – requiring a lengthy Preauthorization Process (best to address these medications before, or at the sentencing hearing, with ‘statements’ from their current treating physicians). Bring a month’s supply (if you arrive on a holiday or weekend you may stand a greater chance of using them): at best they let you use them, at worst they’re thrown out.
    3. Lastly, just not available. How then would you determine what similar (equivalent) substitution would be appropriate?
  • Established Data Points for federal sentence length and BOP Placement is based on:
  • Additionally, we include:
    • Content where there is a specific interest in learning an occupation or trade or
    • Getting a job in  UNICOR (if available, listed on the last page on the UNICOR link).
  • The Washington DC Corrections and Information Council (CIC) independently evaluates BOP Facilities that,
    • House DC residents and therefore contains a broader range of prison-specific information
    • This additional content benefits all defendants, both DC and Non-DC residents alike, as they face their sentencing hearing,
    • While efforts are made to place a defendant close to home (within 500 driving miles of their legal residence), this as I understand is aspirational on the part of the BOP.

 Military: Is your client a Veteran?

  • If possible, connect your client with a facility that caters to veterans. FCI Morgantown started a Veterans to Veterans Service Dog Training Program in 2016.
  • The Participants that are federally imprisoned military veterans are housed in a special wing, which is responsible for training service guide dogs, for veterans who have mobility impairments and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).

Military prisons with service dog training programs

  • NAVCONBRIG Miramar (aka Joint Regional Correctional Facility Southwest)
  • NW Joint Regional Correctional Facility Ft. Lewis Washington
  • Military Prison at Fort Leavenworth

Once their training is complete, these dogs are placed with veterans in the community who have:

Catholic University Law Review; “Dog Training Programs support inmate rehabilitation”.

BOP PPRS Prison Match™ Summary:

  • Should ease your judge’s concerns regarding accepting the placement recommendation.
  • Makes a specific placement request to the BOP more of a reality.
  • PPRS Prison Match™ is available for you to try with a current client until you are completely satisfied.
  • When printed, this court-ready report (optimally within 60 minutes), provides placement matches for your client that contain relevant USSC and BOP-related supporting documentation.
  • Finally, PPRS Prison Match™ is the only online resource for this content – in this format
    • May save:
      1. The legal team’s time, effort, and expense while providing for best placement options.
      2. The Federal BOP the cost of a subsequent medical or non-medical transfer later, no matter how rare.
      3. The defendant (and their families) the legal expenses of a court-ordered transfer, which usually does not resolve promptly.
      4. Ultimately, it is much simpler, quicker, and less expensive for all parties to place a defendant accurately the first time.
  • Note; the BOP has the final say on all inmate issues.
