Default Change in Boot Camp Policy in Pennsylvania

On January 21, 2011, the DOC changed its policy regarding Motivational Boot Camp. Effective January 28, 2011, those graduating from the Boot Camp must serve at least SIXTY days in a halfway house, not thirty days as it was before.

As best we can tell, this policy is being enforced retroactively to all those who are still in either the boot camp or the halfway house.

Can you please clarify some information for me? Is it possible to be released from halfway house before 60 days with an approved home plan? I spoke with someone at MinSec Hazelton who stated if released to AOD program, you must stay 60 days; if released to group home, you submit home plan and leave as soon as it is approved. She also stated that a drug trafficking convict would be released to the group home. I pick up my son from Quehanna bootcamp on 11/22 to take him to MinSec. Must admit, speaking to her raised my hopes that he would be home for Christmas!

Your son isn't in the SIP program is he? If so, that program runs entirely differently from what Bobble is referring to.

Default Boot Camp release

No, my son isn't in the SIP program, he is in the Quehanna Boot Camp program. I plan on calling MinSec Hazelton again on Friday to clarify, it was a quick conversation with a lot of info given, my recall is a bit foggy

The BC rules are explicit about the 60-day requirement.

They will not release you a day sooner than what is law, even with the approved home plan. And here is a suggestion make sure you fill out the paper work for the home plan as soon as he sends it home from the boot camp so that he can leave the half way house as soon as his 60 days are up and he is signed out. If he waits till he is in the half way house he can be there for a while. Here is a tip when ever your son's parole officer comes to your house to inspect it for the home plan have to where he or she is able to inspect every room and closet. There can NOT be any toy guns real guns or any type of guns, hunting gear NO alcohol at all in the house. These are all things that will get it rejected

What if the inmate isn't in there because of drugs and has an approved home plan? Will he still go to a half way house? That doesn't make sense if he's not in jail or the boot camp program because of drugs.

The nature of the charges doesn't matter. The statute requires all BC graduates to pass through a community corrections center before going to their approved home plan.

I Graduated from the boot camp program in January of this year and starting on December 16,2014 if you graduate the boot camp program you no longer have to go to a CC center if a home plan was approved.
