i take and copy the whole list every day and past it into an excel document and sort it by the released date to see who has been released. i have been through all of evryone released in 2018 and there has only been one released from Vandalia also. it appears from all the idoc's only 1 or 2 are released a day with a average of 1 per day.. not every many considering how many people there are and how many idoc's there are.

Keep in mind that list is only those that are released with SSC credit.  Not everyone is eligible for SSC credit.   I have a friend whose husband was released last month but not on that list because he did not receive SSC credit.  Also, I went to see my LO last Tuesday at Kewanee and I was in the waiting room with 2 ladies there to pick up their LO's, they were being released that morning.    There is no list of EVERYONE that is released from IDOC that I know of.

you can see from DOC's reports that the amount of SSC being awarded is declining.  This is contrary to the direction given DOC by the governor and the criminal justice reform commission.  Pure stupidity that DOC would ask for an increase in budget when they are not trying to lower costs but using SSC to decrease inmate population.  I have written both he Governor as well as my legislators.

I encourage everyone to continue to write the Governor & local representatives about SSC. There is currently a bill in the process of being signed for Federal prisoners allowing SSC for those that are not currently allowed to receive it. It is the First Steps Act H.R. 5682. I contacted the commission about this bill and asked if it will have any impact on Illinois reform. I was told that "unfortunately, federal reforms have zero impact on state efforts". I don't understand why federal law doesn't supersede state law. So again - contact your state & local reps and lets get things changed for our loved ones here in Illinois!

I am jaded, but the truth is, it is not in IDOC's best interest to award SSC, if they have less inmates, they have less funding. It is in their and their vendors best interests for there to be as many prisoners as possible. This should be taken over by the Prisoner Review Board or another group of people who do not have a dog in the fight. I have said this all along.

tkesde1 yes you are right on point.  The only group who can directly impact this is the legislatures and any push that appears to help those incarcerated can be politically suicide.  The only argument that is working now is to lower costs other than that they could really give a rats ass about those who are incarcerated.  They don't have to worry about it since the political machine keeps their loved ones out of prison.
