The LTOP is a voluntary program that provides evidenced-based treatment programming to inmates who are serving long-term sentences. Services are provided in individual and group settings to address the following major criminogenic areas:
The length of the program varies, based on each individual's assessed needs.
Inmates may be enrolled if they are housed within the general population, and are not precluded from placement at a LTOP 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.
Inmates will be placed in the LTOP by a Classification Committee on a voluntary basis, based on their eligibility requirements.
