Recreation and Leisure Time Programs
Programs include indoor and outdoor activities, and range from individualized arts and crafts programs to intramural team sports such as softball, basketball, and volleyball. Physical fitness and weight reduction programs are also important activities for inmates and contribute to mental health, good interpersonal relations, and stress reduction.
A schedule of recreational activities is posted both in Recreation and the housing units.
No sodas or food times are permitted on the recreation yard.
Release Preparation Program
Inmate Financial Responsibility Program
Institution staff assist in planning, but the inmate is responsible for making all payments required, either from earnings within the institution or from outside resources. The inmate must provide documentation of compliance and payment. If an inmate refuses to meet his obligations, the inmate cannot work for UNICOR or receive performance pay above the maintenance pay level of $5.25. The status of any financial plan will be included in all progress reports and will be considered by staff when determining security/custody level, job assignments, eligibility for community activities, and institutional program changes. The U.S. Parole Commission will also review financial responsibility progress at parole hearings.
You may be identified for priority considerations for UNICO Remployment if you have court ordered financial obligations. Grades 1-4 will pay a minimum of 50% of their earnings toward their financial responsibility.
