Financial Responsibility Program

The Bureau of Prisons strongly encourages you to satisfy your legitimate financial obligations (e.g., committed fines, non-committed fines, court assessments, child support, etc.). As part of the initial classification process, your unit team will provide you with the opportunity to develop a financial plan for satisfying these obligations. During subsequent program reviews, your unit team will consider your willingness and dedication to addressing your legal financial responsibilities. You should make every effort to satisfy your financial obligations by paying the maximum amount. You may either make a single payment or repetitive payments to satisfy your debt. Participation in the

Financial Responsibility Program (FRP) is a factor which will be assessed when considering you for various programs, including halfway house placement, lower bunks, and telephone use.

Furloughs/Bedside Visits/Funeral Trips

Bedside visits and funeral trips may be considered when an immediate family member is either seriously ill, in critical condition, or has passed away. The Warden will make a decision regarding a bedside visit or funeral trip, dependent upon your custody classification, current events, past record, and adjustment while at the facility. Immediate family is defined as Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Spouse, Son or Daughter.

Residential Release Center

BOP contracts with organizations in the community to provide pre-release services for inmates nearing release. These “half-way houses” have been very successful, so it is anticipated that all inmates who need to participate in a Residential Release Center (RRC) program will be evaluated for placement. The RRC program emphasizes responsibility, steady employment, counseling activities, and a gradual reintegration into the community.


The Recreation Department consists of a Supervisor of Recreation, Assistant Supervisor of Recreation, and seven Recreation Specialist. It is the goal of the Recreation Department to make available as many programs as possible in order that the inmate population may practice healthful living techniques and enjoy participating with others in structured sporting and gaming events.

The recreation program consists of several recreation facilities, intramural programs, classes, and varsity sports programs. The following is an overview of the Recreation Department and its available programs.
