Special Historical Notes and Other Institutional Information
The 304-bed Sturtevant Transitional Facility (STF) is designed to provide for better offender reintegration to the community and accountability for offenders. The facility will provide Work Release, Community Service, and act as a hold facility, similar to a county jail. STF has two security levels; one side is 152-bed minimum custody, the other side is 152-bed medium custody.
STF grounds cover about 13 acres. RCI/STF buildings and grounds together occupy approximately 35 acres of a 123.7-acre site. The minimum-security portion of STF houses up to 152 minimum-security Division of Adult Institution inmates.
DAI inmates participate in programming such as:
- Work Release is only available to offenders on the minimum-security side of the facility. Upon successful completion of the two-week institutional adjustment period, and assigned treatment programming, the offender is eligible for work release in the community. Offenders will pay transportation, room and board charges to the state, as well as child support, restitution, court and other financial obligations. The offender is required to retain employment for the remainder of his stay and hopefully upon release.
- Cognitive Intervention Phase 1 & 2 is a 16-week skills-based program aimed at achieving long-term change rather than short-term compliance on the part of the inmate’s behavior. Inmates learn to identify habits of thinking that directly connect with their criminal behavior, and to see and appreciate the scope of the consequences of their present ways of thinking. Inmates learn to utilize techniques of controlling and changing these habits of thinking
- Anger Management Group Intervention Program facilitated by institution social workers during 12 two-hour group sessions. The Anger Management Group Intervention Program provides participants with tools to effectively manage anger.
- Education available to DAI Inmates: Adult Basic Education and High School Equivalency Diploma program as well as continued secondary education correspondence courses available.
The Probation & Parole Hold (P&P Hold) portion of STF is a medium security unit that can house up to 152 offenders awaiting revocation processing and possible transfer to higher security. There are two double-tiered pods. The majority of the rooms are double-occupancy.
