The title provides essential background information on life in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and the prison profiles come in handy surprisingly often when navigating the treacherous waters of life inside a federal prison, particularly when considering a transfer to another prison facility.

Synopsis

Programs and policies for 105 prisons. Includes educational, vocational, and apprenticeship opportunities, UNICOR, counseling and rehabilitation services, fitness and recreation facilities, religious services, telephone policy, accommodations in surrounding area, and much more. Although it is Bureau of Prisons policy to place an individual in the least restrictive facility within 500 miles of the inmate's release residence, many inmates end up far from their families in harsher conditions than necessary. It doesn't have to be that way. You can take three steps to ensure that your clients do their time in the best possible facilities. First, learn how the BOP classifies its facilities, and the characteristics of each type of facility. Second, understand how the BOP decides what type of prison is appropriate. Finally, learn how to increase the odds of a favorable placement. For assistance with all three steps, turn to Alan Ellis and Michael Henderson's Federal Prison Guidebook. The 2015-2017 edition of Alan Ellis' Federal Prison Guidebook is full of new and updated information on the Bureau of Prisons' policies, procedures, and facilities. Updates include: Chapter 1 Prison Programs and Policies - §1:10.1 Entering Prison; §1:10.6.1 Bureau Rehabilitation and Values Enhancement (BRAVE) Program; §1:10.6.3 Drug Abuse Education; and many more. Chapter 2 Prison Placement- §2:20.8 Transfers. Chapter 3: Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP) - §3:50.1 Ineligibility; §3:50.2 Amount of Reduction; and more.
