Chapter Summary

Social rehabilitation is one of the principal purposes of incarceration in civilized societies. In evaluating whether social rehabilitation really will be furthered by transferring a prisoner, a number of factors have to be considered; these factors are listed in this chapter. The chapter provides an overview of the International Prisoner Transfer Program, discusses how a transfer request is processed, identifies the criteria that are used when making a transfer determination, describes how the transferred sentence is administered in the receiving country, and discusses the role of federal prosecutors in the transfer program. Over the years, many United States Attorney's offices (USAOs) have provided thoughtful and informative responses to International Prisoner Transfer Unit (IPTU) inquiries. The Criminal Resource Manual has a more complete description of the International Prisoner Transfer Program, and the procedures that must be followed.
