Thank you for responding to my post. I called the Sumter boot camp office and they were not closed nor did they mention anything about losing.

I also want to add to what Ben's girl has said, beside the fact that Sumter is supposed to be closing, I don't think DOC is going to take your requests into consideration. I know their website states that they do not take 3rd party requests as well

D. The department will not transfer inmates based on requests from third parties (individuals other than an inmate or a department employee while in the performance of his/her official duties, to include the inmate’s family members and friends).

and while Sumter may not be officially "closed", they may not be taking in any new inmates??? They currently only have (as of DOC's website) 30 inmates in there, so they must be waiting beds to move them. The article did state they were supposed to be shut down by that date as Ben's girl stated. It just looks like they are running a little behind schedule.

A conclusion is simply the place where your brain got tired of thinking.

The boot camp is a 4 month program so those inmates are finishing up their program so they can go home. DOC probably felt it wouldn't be fair to cut them off and send them back to prison.

It'll still close, but ya ur right they are just waiting.

First, call the classification department where he's at now and find out if he is eligible for boot camp. If he is, ask what the process is to get him to the one he's interested in. Then, let him know and encourage him to work towards his goal, if he's eligible.

You can't really do anything other than that but, they will at least know he has someone out here. He will need to make his desires known and work on any requirements or programs he needs to complete first...
