Joint resolution authorizing an amendment to the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) (864-13, Modification 2) between the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the Lake County Work Release Center.
4, 2016 • Most recently, the County approved amendments to the IGA (864-13, Modification 1)
that require the implementation of additional policy and operational compliance procedures regarding the use of technology (cell phones) and that inmates be given access to Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act information and be allowed to enroll in health insurance prior to discharge from the facility.
• The IGA Modification (864-13, Modification 2) requires the county to cease collecting the subsistence payments from BOP inmates. The agreement outlines that this action is being taken in recognition that the process of re-entry following incarceration is very difficult especially financially due to long periods of unemployment.
• This has no financial impact to Lake County revenue. Under this new agreement, BOP will pay Lake County the full amount for inmates who transfer from BOP to Lake County administered home confinement.
