PPRS Prison Match™ helps
Prison Match™, a Sentencing Preparation Software that:
- May save the legal team time, effort and resources while providing best prison placement options.
- May save the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) the cost of a subsequent medical or non-medical transfer later, no matter how rare.
- Could save the defendant (and their family) the legal expense of a court-ordered transfer later, which usually does not solve the issue in a timely manner.
While taking into account the defendant’s:
- Security requirements
- Healthcare needs (providing continuity of medical care).
- Medication availability, if on formula.
- Educational or occupational aspirations (reducing recidivism).
- Is camp placement an option: Federal Prison Camp (FPC) v. satellite camp, there are significant differences.
The goal is to request placement into a facility appropriate for the defendant’s security classification, while taking into account individuals medical and mental healthcare needs. Further, matching them according to interests they may have in either higher educational, learning an occupational trade along with taking into account the proximity to their family and loved ones all goes a long way towards reducing their recidivism paradigm.
Ultimately, it is much simpler, quicker and less expensive (for the defendant, their family and the BOP), to place an inmate accurately the first time.
Is your client a veteran?
If possible connect your client with a facility that caters to veterans. FCI Morgantown began a Veterans-to-Veterans Service Dog Training Program in 2016. The participants are federally imprisoned military veterans who are housed in a special wing, and who will be training service dogs for veterans who have mobility impairments and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (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 mobility impairments or PTSD, or contribute to other military service missions.
These programs are run by k9 companions for independence.
