    Facilities Descriptions
    A probation detention center (PDC) is a minimum security facility for confining probationers. Offenders may be sent directly to the center as a sentencing option or if they prove unable to fulfill their probation obligations in the community, may be sent to the detention center as a result of a revocation proceeding.

    PDCs provide a sanctioning option for probationers who require more security or supervision than that provided by regular community supervision or a diversion center but may not qualify for a boot camp. The centers are highly structured, with regimented schedules that include supervised, unpaid work in surrounding communities and programming geared toward making them more successful in the community.
    There are 19 PDCs currently in operation with a total of 3,342 beds. Three centers house women (a total of 532 beds). A PDC in Bacon County is expected to open in the next year, adding up to 200 beds.

    One facility, the Bainbridge Probation Substance Abuse Treatment Center (BPSATC), specializes in probationers with severe substance abuse problems. BPSATC began accepting offenders in late FY02. This is a residential center for 192 male probationers who have demonstrated chronic substance abuse problems. The program has advanced cognitive-behavioral substance abuse treatment with a complete mental health component. The center was originally designed for use by only selected South Georgia circuits, but the mission has been expanded so the center can serve probationers who have not been successful at other intensive programs.

    my partner is at BPSATC, release scheduled for 8/09. He's written nothing but kudos for this program and feels it has given him the "tools" he needs to stay clean. I myself have had reservations, but will I support him in his sobriety from drugs. He'll be home soon, thats all we can pray for.

    Furlogh question. I was wondering if I might be able to get my son a furlough for Christmas. He is in Bacon Probation DC. Anyone ever requested this? It would be a family hardship furlough. This will (barring a miracle) be my dad's last Christmas and he would love to have all of his grandchildren here this year.

    Anyone know how an inmate is released from a probation detention center? Do we, as parents, just wait to hear from them?
