So if you haven’t heard, the USDB now only accepts inmates who have been handed sentences over ten years. Those with lesser sentences typically go to the JRCF (Joint Regional Correctional Facility), which is also on Ft. Leavenworth. The policy has slowed the inflow of inmates considerably. Reception only has three people in it for the first time since I’ve been here. The pods are still crowded, but it feels like the inflow now roughly matches the outflow of inmates granted parole or released after serving their full sentences.

  1. I’m not sure how recent the policy is. Russ talked about it as if it had just been instituted and as though it was a blanket policy covering all military conviction. I didn’t have time to do a lot of research before posting this on Russ’s behalf, but what I found said the DB takes all convicted officers (regardless of sentence) and convicted enlisted service members with sentences over 10 years and it sounded as though that policy had been in place for a while. Does anyone know for sure?
