Facing Federal Prison – The PSR is your Medical and Security Referral
After 30 years in healthcare, I wanted to use my experience with patient care and interacting with insurance companies to help me interpret the BOP CARE LEVEL I-IV Structure along with their psychology oriented National Programs. I believe that for those facing federal prison, the PSR can be used both as a medical referral for placement, as well as a means to make a security placement recommendation. Personally, if I can positively influence a defendant’s/inmates’ future path, I’d be grateful for that opportunity.
A positive example of breaking the recidivism paradigm:
In 2017 a friend emailed me a link to the Last Mile. Briefly; at San Quentin State Prison they started a program that is preparing “incarcerated individuals for successful reentry through business and technology training”.

Politics / Reducing Recidivism, having a felony record and second chances
We all know that leaving prison with a “felony” on record disqualifies offenders from most jobs in our current workforce. The existing disclosure requirement that appears on most employment applications inhibits those affected from moving forward with their lives, thus contributing to this recidivism paradigm.
While slowly changing, our society’s current reality is that once released, they are still facing this challenge every day. Instead, it should be considered that once someone has paid for their crime, they are given a second chance. How states are working to reduce recidivism among ex-offenders.
Some states have removed barriers for ex-offenders, but in federal cases nationwide these challenges still exist. Utah was one of at least three states that enacted legislation this year making it easier to expunge a criminal record. Some states have also moved to make it easier for ex-offenders to get professional licenses and to limit the penalties ex-offenders and others face for not paying court fines and fees.
