Modeled after a successful Canadian program created specifically for lifers, the Long-Term Offender Program [LTOP] pairs inmates with mentors - former convicts who know firsthand what it’s like to walk out of prison after decades inside.
The program is designed for inmates ages 45 and older who have been imprisoned for at least 15 years, including offenders with parole-eligible life sentences (but excluding sex offenders and arsonists). It provides a transitional reintegration for selected prisoners who have behaved well, acknowledged their crimes, and shown remorse.
These are interviews conducted in March 2014 with men who have gone through the LTOP program and have since been released.
