PPRS Prison Match™ incorporates these data points;
- Federal Sentencing; PPRS Prison Match™ is a 60 minute history (like your own physicians), once completed in your office immediately provides best prison matches by implementing the following ‘Data Points‘;
- Medical and Mental Healthcare needs through the BOP CARE LEVELS I-IV Structure
- BOP National Psychology Programs
- Medication availability (~ 3000 different drugs), falls into 3 tiers;
- On Formulary – Available
- Non-Formulary – requiring a lengthy Preauthorization Process (best to address these medications before, or at the sentencing hearing, with ‘statements’ from their current treating physicians).

The Participants that are federally imprisoned military veterans are housed in a special wing, which is responsible for training service guide dogs, for veterans who have mobility impairments and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).
Military prisons with service dog training programs

Once their training is complete, these dogs are placed with veterans in the community who have:
- mobility impairments or,
- PTSD, or
- contribute to other military service missions.
- These programs are run by K9 Companions For Independence.
