DuQuoin Bootcamp Rules
« on: July 31, 2009, 06:44:02 PM »
This is the rules list that I got from my son who is in the Duquoin bootcamp:

The Impact Incarceration Program is a 120 - 180 day, discipline intensive effort consisting of applied discipline, strenuous physical exercise, labor-intensive work details and a concentrated multi-faceted program effort to include substance abuse and group counseling in addition to compulsory education program. 

Inmates will not be permitted to make telephone calls during the the first thirty days of the program.  Once the inmate has been in the program for thirty days he will allowed to make one collect call per week.  After completion of the first sixty days of the program, inmates will be permitted one visit per weekend.  Visits much be scheduled by the inmate at least (14) days in advance (arrangements will be made with you by the inmate through correspondence or by telephone as allowable.)  Your visit is approved for that specific date only.  If you have any type of felony conviction, or if you are on probation or parole, you will need prior approval before you may visit.  You must make your request known to us in writing.  Your request much include:  the date of incarceration, place of incarceration, start and end date of parole/probation and the type of conviction.  If you have someone bringing you for your visit, they will need to wait until your visit is verified before leaving the grounds.  (No drop offs.)

There will be no restriction on the number of letters that an inmate may send or receive.  Family members and friends are encouraged to provide support through personal correspondence.  The mailing address below requires full name and register number:

Inmate's Name _____________________ and Number # ________________
Du Quoin Impact Incarceration Program
P O Box 999
Pinckneyville, Illinois  62274

Should an emergency arise that requires the inmate to be notified, persons should contact the facility administration at (618)542-5738.

Upon completion of the program, a commencement exercise will be conducted.  Family and friends are encouraged to attend and join the inmates in their accomplishments.

Questions concerning the program should be directed to the Superintendent, Clem Campanella, at the phone number provided above.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

You will, I know it's hard, but you will hear from him. Maybe he couldn't get on the phones on Saturday, hoping you'll hear from him this Saturday.

No, it will be with some consistency but always variation.  May depend on what's on the agenda for that particular day (they may have everyone outside at a point they usually make calls), so it could be morning, could be evening, could be pushed to the next day...  not uncommon to have loss of phone rights for the entire dorm, just because.

To be honest, he may never get them.  When I was in receiving, I was told that my family could send me running shoes; when they inquired directly they were told nothing was accepted outside of letters and a bible (I was at Dixon Springs).  You really don't want him having them anyway, they'll get stolen pretty quickly.  I had some pretty ridiculously insignificant things stolen, I'd hate to have been in possession of anything nice.
