In Michigan, a person facing prison may shorten their incarceration if they are placed in and successfully complete the MDOC SAI Prisoner Boot Camp.  Both men and women are candidates for the program.  The first portion of the program is ninety (90) days in length, during which the inmate participates in strenuous physical exercise, community projects work, educational and vocational counseling.  Inmates who successfully complete the boot camp program are immediately paroled to aftercare in the area of the inmate’s residence.  The aftercare component is a combination of a 30 day residential substance abuse treatment program and 90 days on electronic monitoring.  If an inmate does not exhibit a need for residential substance abuse treatment, the 30 day residential treatment program can be waived and the probationer will participate in electronic monitoring for 120 days.  The inmate is then placed on 5 months of intensive monitoring.  Inmates who fail the program are transferred to a regular prison to complete their sentence.
