From page 3 of Notice of Change:
INFORMATIVE DIGEST/POLICY STATEMENT OVERVIEW:

Current regulations establish that rehabilitative programs are provided to inmates to help prepare them for their release from prison, providing valuable skills and reducing the likelihood of recidivism. However, due to the cost of prison overcrowding and significant budget restrictions, the Department was able to serve only a small percentage of its offender population with rehabilitative services.
Assembly Bill 109, The Public Safety Realignment (Realignment), was signed into law in 2011, and directed offenders with certain felony convictions to serve their incarceration in local jails rather than in prison. As a result of Realignment, the Department experienced a significant population reduction and was able to redirect resources to its goal of enhancing rehabilitative programs in an effort to reduce recidivism.
The proposed regulations provide authority for the Department to establish the Long Term Offender Program (LTOP) at designated institutions to provide inmates who are serving long term sentences with evidenced based Cognitive Behavioral Treatment (CBT) programs with the goal of minimizing the risk to society if released, and with services upon release to allow an easier transition back into society.
This action provides the following:
- A definition of the LTOP.
- Program eligibility and exclusionary criteria.
- A priority system for placement into an LTOP.
- Inmates will not be subject to disciplinary action for failure to participate in the LTOP as it is a voluntary program.
- Inmate transfer procedures for the purpose of participating in an LTOP.
- Program participants receive priority for work reassignment upon completion of their LTOP assignment.
- LTOP participants are exempt from the standard institution wait list merging process, and upon completion of an LTOP assignment, have priority over other inmates waiting for a similar work assignment.

According to this fact sheet...

Eligibility Requirements:
Inmates may be enrolled if they are housed within the general population, and are not precluded from placement at a LTOPP facility. They must have appeared before the Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) for Initial Parole Consideration, been denied parole, and have sufficient time to complete the program prior to their next Parole hearing. Totally medically disabled inmates will require clearance by a classification committee prior to placement.

New subsections 3040.2(c) - 3040.2(c)(3) are adopted to read:
(c) Inmates who meet the following criteria may be considered for placement into LTOP:
(1) Reside within the General Population and does not have case factors that would preclude placement at an institution operating an LTOP.
(2) Must have a criminogenic need identified by an automated needs assessment tool, as described in section 3000.
(3) Is serving an indeterminate sentence with the possibility of parole or a long term determinate sentence and be within one to five years from a parole suitability hearing. Inmates housed at an institution operating an LTOP who have less than one year remaining to their parole suitability hearing may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Question....If you are a long term determinate inmate, there is no parole suitability hearing, right? Thanks!

Are there any petitions in reference to this title to get signatures to pass this program into law? As I posted in another thread my husband is taking educational class's to hopefully this time prepare him to succeed and not return to State Prison. Business/ communication classes at ISP. Any info appreciated.

My understanding when reading it is.... Determinate that is within 5 years of their parole suitability meaning writhing 5 years of their 85%time if they are a violent offender not within 5 years of their full term but I could totally be wrong.

I don't know if it's because I haven't had my coffee this morning or what.. but is it only for Lifers w/ possibility of parole.. or is it for inmates serving 85% of a long sentence? Because my husband received 25 years with 85% and will not be seeing a board so I'm a little lost.
