Change in Classification System for Assigning Custody Levels to Inmates in DOC Custody
These modifications are necessary to update the policy and procedure of the classification system for assigning inmates with the appropriate custody level, and to provide clarification for scoring the custody classification guide. Within the custody classification guide, the designators for escape history have been modified to more accurately assess an inmate's escape risk. Other changes are of a housekeeping nature to reflect operational changes within the agency.
