The Boot Camp Program

The Department of Correction allows selected inmates of the same sex to voluntarily participate in a 105-day program of intensive behavior modification in an arduous, physically demanding, military-like environment, otherwise known as a “boot camp.”

The Boot Camp Program is an intensified correctional program to deter repetition of criminal behavior and illegal drug use reducing the need for long-term incarceration.

Upon successful completion of the program, the inmate will finish the remainder of his sentence on probation.

Only offenders who have not been previously incarcerated for a felony in an adult facility and are serving sentences of 10 years or less for nonviolent offenses are eligible for boot camp.
