PPRS Prison Match™ Helps
PPRS Prison Match™- Federal; a PSR/Sentencing Preparation Software
- May save the legal team time, effort and expense while providing the 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 (no matter how rare), which usually does not solve the issue in a timely manner.
Prison Match™ – Federal; takes into account the defendants:
- Security requirements
- Medical and Mental Healthcare needs (providing continuity of medical care).
- Medication availability, if on formula.
- Educational and/or occupational aspirations (thus reducing recidivism).
The goal of PPRS Prison Match™ is to request placement into a facility appropriate for the defendant’s security classification. Further, it takes into account an individual’s medical and mental healthcare needs, educational and occupational interests, along with their placement proximity nearest to their family and loved ones. The final decision is made by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP).
Ultimately, it is much simpler, quicker and less expensive (for the BOP, defense team and the defendant’s family), 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 Disorders (PTSD).
Other 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.
