He guys my brother is in Taylorville right and his waiting for a responds from Springfield for his work release application. Taylorville send his application just this week after some trouble he had with a stupid drug program counselor there.....but at the end, it looks like my brother will be getting work release.  It`s just a matter of Springfield to process his paperwork. Anyway, my question is.....is it true that northlawndale gives credit for timeoff if the inmate is taking college classes and working at the same time?    If so, do class x non-violent offenders qualify too?

Updated list of items to be brought when someone enters Lawndale ATC (as of the writing of this 5/2104).

My son arrived Friday and called with the list. There is also an important update regarding cell phones.

The list I was given is:

Birth certificate
SS Card
State ID (not a DL) if they have an ID it's $10 to change the address. If not $20 for a new ID
Twin size sheet set and blanket (they MUST be the same color)
1 pillow
2 Towels and 2 washcloths (towels and washcloths must be all the same color but don't have to match sheets)
10 pairs of pants (1 pair minimum must be "dress" pants)
10 shirts (1 minimum must be a "dress" shirt)
10 pairs of socks (dress socks for the pants should be included)
10 pairs underwear
5 pairs of shorts
2 sweatshirts (or "hoodies")
at least 1 but no more than 5 ties
Dress shoes
Gym shoes
Watch (valued at under $50)
Laundry bag
12 plastic hangers
Alarm clock (and batteries)
2 boxes powdered laundry soap
$60 in small bills
4 rolls of quarters (they use pay phones not phone cards so change is needed for laundry AND phone as I understand it)
A CD player with headphones and up to 12 CD's are permitted
If they bring a prison TV they may use it but will need to have a portable antenna brought to them

Personal care:
Gel or mousse must be alcohol free
2 toothpaste
2 toothbrushes
Soap (he has some already so quantity permitted wasn't given to me)

He has a trimmer so I am not sure about what can or can't be brought in terms of razors)

He was sent on Friday and his items had to be dropped off on Saturday, Sunday or Tuesday between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm OR 4:30 to 6:30 pm

After 30 days when residents are eligible to go out and look for a job/work they are permitted to have their cell phone brought to them. It is locked up at all times except when the residents leave for interviews/work. Any other use is considered contraband (obviously). I am sure there are more rules regarding the cell phones that I am not privy to.

I hope this helps! He's outgrown all of his clothes while in prison so I am scurrying around to compile everything on the list!
