How do I find out a client's release date?
To protect clients' confidentiality, we do not give release dates to the public. The client can share his release date during visitation, his phone calls or through mail correspondence.
Why do clients have multiple release dates?
Most clients have a maximum date, also known as a 'hard date.' This is the maximum date the client will stay in the program. The projected release date, or 'soft date,' is an estimate of when a client will be released based on the work credit he/she may earn by participating successfully in the program. Dates are always subject to change.
