RJ Donovan Correctional Facility Volunteer Clearance Forms

Warden Paramo recently sent out the following message for all Volunteers at RJ Donovan:


“Recently, it has come to my attention that the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility’s (RJDCF) Volunteer Program is not in full compliance with mandates noted in the Department Operations Manual (DOM).”

“Therefore, in an effort to bring our program into compliance with Departmental policy, effective immediately, per DOM, Article 9, Section 101090.6, citizens requesting to volunteer shall initiate such request by submitting a letter to the hiring authority via the Community Resources Manager (CRM). Prospective volunteers may utilize the attached sample letter as an example for these submissions. Once a letter is received, the CRM will review the request, discuss the prospective volunteer with the appropriate Chaplain, and, if approved, mail the prospective volunteer a Volunteer Application to complete. This memorandum shall remain in effect until such time as its contents are incorporated within the RJDCF’s DOM Supplement regarding Volunteers.”

Based on this new guidance, each person that wishes to volunteer (whether first time volunteer or one that has volunteered for years) must submit a letter to the CRM. Please use the sample letter here and mail it to the address in the sample letter. This letter must be mailed and cannot be sent electronically.

If you have any questions, please contact us at the email address on the Contact Us page here.

This is the form you need to complete is you would like to attend the KAIROS Closing Ceremony at RJ Donovan. You only need to submit this form if you do not have a current RJ Donovan Volunteer Clearance. All the information is required on the form and is necessary to obtain a one day gate clearance to attend the Closing Ceremony inside the prison. If you submit an application to attend, you are committing to being there. Additional information including clearance approval will be sent to you a few days prior to the Closing date – Please do not ask if you have been cleared as we will let you know as soon as we are informed.
