Q. What is GAP?
A. GAP (Graduate Assistance Program) is ISP graduates (participants who complete ISP) who volunteer to become actively involved with participants. They serve as sponsors and /or network team members and act out as friends for the participant to help integrate each person back into society. "ISP is not for everyone; it is only for those of you who want a chance to change and for those who could follow some basic rules. (Don't be influenced by losers and go wrong. Think on your own and good luck.)"

INTENSIVE SUPERVISION PROGRAM The Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) makes it possible for inmates who are sincerely interested in changing their lives to be released before parole. ISP permits offenders to serve the remainder of their sentences in the community rather than in prison. ISP is "prison without walls." ISP is a strict no-nonsense program, but participants receive all the support, guidance and encouragement they need to successfully complete the program. You MUST obtain a full-time job, do 16 hours of community service per month, attend treatment programs including ISP group meetings, observe a nightly curfew, keep a daily diary and weekly budget, submit to frequent urine monitoring and pay all of your financial obligations. You may also be required to pay towards the cost incurred for supervising you in the program. Your ISP Officer stands ready to give you all the help you will need to graduate from the program. The decision is up to you. Are you ready to make a change in your life for the better? Information about ISP participants may be shared with other parties when deemed necessary or advisable by ISP. BASIC QUESTIONS ABOUT ISP Q. A. Am I eligible to apply to ISP? You are eligible if you have been convicted and sentenced to a State Institution UNLESS the crime was HOMICIDE (including DEATH BY AUTO), ROBBERY or a SEX OFFENSE. Also, a conviction for a FIRST DEGREE OFFENSE will make you INELIGIBLE. ANYONE WHO PARTICIPATES IN THIS PROGRAM MUST LIVE IN NEW JERSEY DURING SUPERVISION. How do I apply? Just answer the questions on this form, and send it to ISP. If you do not have answers to all questions, complete the application with as much information as you can.
