A person facing prison time in Michigan may be able to avoid a prison sanction or shorten their prison sentence by successfully completing the Special Alternative Incarceration Program (SAI), formally called “SAI Boot Camp.” The program began in 1988 and is available to both men and women. Probationers convicted of a felony are eligible to be considered for placement in SAI if they meet all qualification requirements. Prisoners are eligible to be considered for placement in SAI if they meet all qualification requirements. Persons who are pending sentence should consult with their lawyer to discuss if they are eligible for consideration and placement in the SAI Program. Prisoners who believe they meet all of the eligibility requirements should consult with their prison counselor or contact Professional Probation and Parole Consulting (PPPC) to discuss if they are eligible for SAI screening and placement. Additional information on qualifications can be found online.
