Insight into DOC Boot Camp and Short Sentence Parole
Act 115 of 2019, as part of the Justice Reinvestment Initiative (2), streamlined the placement of offenders in drug treatment programs and other intermediate punishment programs. It also improved and expedited the parole process for non-violent offenders.
Eligible inmates may be processed through one of three programs including Boot Camp or Short Sentence Parole (SSP). The former is a military-style motivational boot camp where inmates assigned to the camp undergo a rigid six-month disciplinary and training program. The latter, Short Sentence Parole, allows the Parole Board to parole an individual without requiring an interview at the end of the person's minimum date or RRRI minimum date, whichever is shorter. Learn more about these two program including eligibility, duration, components of the program, successful completion, and guidelines for expulsion.
This webinar is approved for 1.0 substantive, practice, and procedure credit hour by the Pennsylvania CLE Board. PACDL is an accredited distance learning provider in Pennsylvania.
