Inmate Classification System image

The purpose of inmate classification is to provide fair and consistent guidelines in determining assignments (Pre-sentence and Post-sentence) to housing areas, security levels, treatment and program services. This plan is to insure that such decisions are made to the benefit of both the facility and the inmate, and will ensure that proper documentation is maintained in such decisions. Classification information will be managed in a fashion, which allows monitoring and evaluation of facility programs, planning and budgeting.

The classification/assessment system will provide for the management and confinement needs of this facility, for the protection of the inmate, the safety of other inmates, to prevent escape, and to protect the general public. The risk and needs of each newly admitted inmate shall be assessed and addressed individually, based on objective and identifiable criteria which provides for placement of the inmate in the least restrictive housing. Inmates will not be classified based on the lack of the availability of space in an appropriate housing assignment.

Classification procedures will be administered equitably and consistently, without discrimination against any individual based upon sex, race, color, creed, culture, background, physical or mental handicap, or national origin.
