I have a family member/friend who is scheduled to be released from prison. He was convicted in federal court in another district or state but wants to reside in the Los Angeles area. How can his case be transferred?

The offender must request transfer of jurisdiction from his Bureau of Prisons Case Manager. When the request is made by the case manager, the U.S. Probation Office will conduct an investigation to determine whether the offender can reside in this district and will report its findings to the Bureau of Prisons.
