When most people think of prison, they either think of Escape from Alcatraz, HBO’s Oz or the mythical “Club Fed.” Alcatraz is closed, Oz does not exist and “Club Fed” went the way of Alcatraz with Congress’ “get tough on crime” legislation. All, and we mean all, prisons are tough, scary and often dangerous places. Indeed, some are tougher, scarier and more dangerous than others; few have as much drama and death as Oz and none have golf courses and tanning booths.
At NPSC, we help prepare an offender for future incarceration. We are your prison coach, so to speak. We specialize in celebrity and high profile inmate preparation. We believe that being prepared for that which lies ahead will best enable one to not only “survive” prison but also help make the most of it. Being prepared emotionally and financially will make the initial introduction to prison less traumatic. We teach you the rules, official and not so official, but nonetheless important. We review every relevant prison protocol and rule including visitation, finances, personal items, mail in/mail out procedures; medical and health procedures, contraband, discipline, Special Housing Units (SHU), “shots”, incident report and administrative procedures, furloughs, emergency furloughs, commissary, residential drug treatment programs (RDAP), transfers, employment, UNICOR and Community Custody Centers (CCCs)
Equally important, we meet with and assist an offender’s family with all aspects of incarceration. It is often said that an inmate’s family goes to prison with them. We do everything within our power to assist family and loved ones getting through the prison bureaucracy so as to minimize their concerns. We also provide counseling to both the offender and their ones so as to make the family’s emotional and physical transition as smooth as possible.
