Recommendations

Program Modifications:

The RPC program should be modified in order to provide programming to CM 1 and CM 2 inmates. Introducing the inmates to the RPC program at the CM 1 and CM 2 levels will better equip the inmates and the staff at the institution for placement to the CM 3 level and possible transfer to general population.



CM 1 Modifications:
  • Each cell should be equipped with a television.
  • Program delivery should be through video-based programming, cell-front instruction, and in-cell assignments.
  • If the cells aren't equipped with televisions, in-cell material and cell-front instruction should be used to provide programming.


CM 2 Modifications:
  • Each cell should be equipped with a television.
  • Program delivery should be through video-based programming, cell-front instruction, and in-cell assignments.
  • If the cells aren't equipped with televisions, programming should be provided during dayroom activity small-group instruction, in-cell material and cell-front instruction.


CM 3 Modifications:
  • There should no longer be three stratified phases of programming.
  • The length of the CM 3 programming should be reduced from seven to six months.
  • Program delivery should be primary through classroom instruction and small-group activities.
  • Video-based programming, in-cell assignments, and cell-front instruction should also be used to complement program delivery.


Program Expansion:
  • The RPC program should be expanded to the other three permanent CM institutions: Santa Rosa CI, Charlotte CI, and Lowell CI.
  • The results of this report indicate that the program is having positive results and can be very beneficial to the institutions and to the department as a whole.
