Annotation: The Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Management of the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, held hearings on the role of the Federal government in boot camps. These hearings specifically dealt with the use of boot camps in Michigan, where they are referred to as Special Alternative Incarceration programs.
Abstract: The Federal Bureau of Prisons, whose prison population averages 37 years and mostly has a history of multiple offenses, has no boot camp program. However, a small percentage of Federal prisoners might benefit from such a program. The hearings also examined whether the Federal government is adequately supporting boot camps at the State level. These hearings consisted of four panels. The first was comprised of key Michigan State legislators who were involved in starting and monitoring the Michigan program. The second panel consisted of Michigan Department of Corrections officials, including the head of the Special Alternative Incarceration program and the on-site supervisor at Camp Sauble. The third panel was made up of three probationers who graduated from Camp Sauble, and the final panel testified to the importance of the Camp Sauble program from the sentencing perspective.
