Default Illinois Work Camps??

I understand work camps and work release are different. My boyfriend is in vandalia he wants to getc into work release but he'll actually have to do his entire time. Whereas what I have found out about work camps is once you get accepted you do 6 months in 66 months out and the rest on parole. Has anyone lo been thru the process how does he apply how do we find out more information about work camps.

Work camps are secure correctional facilities that have a minimum security clearance. Inmates placed at work camps are not allowed to be in the community working on their own...they may be assigned to a Road Crew that an officer takes out each day to clean up highways and such, but they return to the facility when the assignment is complete.

Work release centers / adult transition centers are stand alone facilities with a minimum security rating. People approved for placement at work release centers will normally have around 24 months remaining on their sentences, be first time offenders with a non-violent conviction. They are encouraged to get jobs and work in the community but they are still classified as an inmate and are not on parole. Hourly checks are completed by staff on each person while in the community working. A portion of their pay goes to the IDOC facility / ATC for housing, a portion is set up in an escrow account for when they parole and they are given roughly 25 percent to spend on their own needs such as clothing and food. The good part is that after I believe 6 months they can apply for a weekend pass to return home for an unsupervised visit.

Below is a link to the Work Release / ATC's IDOC web page.

Take Care Chris
