|Nebraska seeking inmate volunteers for free transfer to 'home state' prisons|
|By norfolkdailynews.com- JoAnne Young|
The Nebraska prison system is giving hundreds of inmates an opportunity to request a transfer to finish their sentences in their "home" states, at no cost to those who qualify.
The Department of Correctional Services confirmed Monday it sent letters to 601 inmates last week saying prison officials recognized completing all or part of their sentences in their home state would allow some of them to be closer to family and friends.
"Having strong, supportive relationships is important both during and after your incarceration," Chief of Operations Diane Sabatka-Rine said in the letter. "So we would like to offer you the opportunity to be considered for an interstate transfer to your home state at no cost to you."
