When an inmate first arrives for commitment, he/she is administratively and physically processed. The inmate is interviewed by the intake officer to determine the offender's medical and mental condition. The inmate is required to provide basic routine information necessary to complete the intake process. During the intake process, inmates are subject to a pat-search and/or unclothed search, depending on the offender's charges and/or demeanor and/or past record. The inmate will be subject to being photographed and fingerprinted. The inmate will go through a medical screening which includes a delousing protocol.
Bail is set by the District Magistrate at the time of arraignment. During business hours, bail may be posted at the office of the arraigning Magistrate. During non-business hours bail can be posted with the On-Call Magistrate, time and location will be at the Magistrates discrestion. Bail can also be arranged with a professional bail company.
Inmates who are sentenced to serve incarceration time at Greene County Prison are informed of their projected minimum and maximum release date upon initial receipt of the sentencing order by the Prison. Since, in most cases, actual release authority must be received from other agencies, these projected dates are subject to concurrence and, therefore, may be changed. If a change occurs, the inmate will be informed. Prison personnel are not responsible for resolving discrepancies that an inmate believes may exist in any sentencing order or other type of detention authority. Therefore, Prison personnel are prohibited from contacting judicial authorities on behalf of an inmate. Inmates must pursue legal matters concerning their detention and/or sentence either personally or through their counsel. Only Prison personnel the rank of Shift Commander and above are authorized to calculate and inform inmates of their projected release date.
A Detainer is a lawful hold from another County lodged against an inmate. It is the Prison's policy to inform inmates when a detainer is lodged against them. Inmates are given a copy of the detainer when it is received by the Prison. Inmates will be released to the detaining authority when their local legal obligations are met.
Inmates receiving a sentence with a minimum and maximum release date must make application for parole. Prison personnel shall initiate the application process approximately 10 days prior to an inmate's minimum release date. Inmates applying for parole are responsible for payment of Acts 96 and 139 fees ($60 combined) prior to a parole application being completed and subsequently submitted. The Prison requires a receipt from the Clerk of Courts office verifying payment of the same.
Generally, it takes one to two weeks for parole applications to be processed through the parole/probation office, district attorney and the sentencing judge. Inmates should, therefore, ensure these costs are paid as soon as possible. Inmates will not be released on their minimum release date if parole has not been granted by the sentencing judge.Those incarcerated for Parole/Probation Violation(s) do not have to re-apply for parole. They will be released upon completion of their sentence. District Magistrates issue flat sentences with no probation period following incarceration. Inmates are released upon completion of the sentence. NCIC (National Crime Information Center) checks are conducted on all inmates prior to release. Inmates will be detained if a detainer or "person wanted" status is discovered, regardless of sentence completion.
An inmate must fill out an Inmate Request Form made out to the Counselor to requests for any of the services.
The inmate population have access to a number of different types of groups ranging from religious groups, support groups and educational groups. Groups, meeting times, and days are all subject to change and a schedule will be maintained at the County Prison.
