(BOP) - In addition to incarcerating offenders in prisons that are safe, secure, humane and cost-efficient, the Bureau of Prisons encourages inmates to participate in programs that reduce recidivism and improve reentry outcomes. The BOP offers a wide range of inmate programs that include nationally standardized programs, as well as locally-developed programs. Descriptions of these nationally standardized programs and the occupational training programs have been compiled into two directories. These directories also identify the facilities that currently offer these particular programs.
