Probation Boot Camps
There is one Probation Boot Camp in Georgia, located at Scott State Prison. The facility can house up to 160 male felons. Probationers may be sentenced directly to the boot camp by the courts or as a result of a revocation action.

A candidate for the boot camp is not less than 17 and not more than 30 years of age at the time of sentencing, has no previous period of incarceration in an adult penal institution, has no known contagious or communicable disease, has no known physical limitation that would exclude strenuous labor and physical activity, and has no known mental disorder or retardation that would prevent participation in a program that requires intensive interaction and strenuous physical activity.

The camps are highly structured with a military regimen. Offenders work during the day in the facility or in the local community doing public service work. Risk reduction programming, particularly in the area of substance abuse, is provided in the evening hours.

Inmate Boot Camps
There are six Inmate Boot Camps in Georgia, most co-located with prisons. There are 898 Inmate Boot Camp beds, all reserved for male felons. The State Board of Pardons and Paroles chooses inmates for the boot camp from those who have been sentenced to prison. Inmates who successfully complete the three-to-four month program are released on parole regardless of their original sentence length.
