Project for Older Prisoners

pops.jpg George Washington University Law students work within the criminal process, particularly the prison and parole system, through Project for Older Prisoners (POPS). These students interview and evaluate low-risk older and geriatric inmates in obtaining parole or other forms of release from incarceration. POPS operates in five states—Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, and Virginia—and the District of Columbia. To date, the program has secured the release of almost 100 inmates without a single act of recidivism on the part of those released.

I have a 79 year old friend in Corcoran State Prison. His name is Dale Lowe. He applied for a transfer to a rest home about three months ago. He would like to know if anyone has received his application and has anything been done about.

I am a grad. student in Occupational Therapy with an M.S. in gerontology and public policy, as well. I am interested in learning all I can about the aging prison population, as I would like to work professionally in this area. I live in the Los Angeles area and would be very interested in augmenting my knowledge base and involvement in the issues of housing, health and policy issues affecting older prisoners. Can you refer me to published studies? Thank you-

I am interested in the POPS program. I live in San Diego. What opportunities are there here? please send me more information. I am also very interested in the policy of incarcerating non-violent drug offenders and the effect this has on the correctional systems ability to keep dangerous predators away from society. Do you have organizations you recommend. Thank you
