Question and answer
How would you differentiate male and female prisoner backgrounds? Is there a better solution to prisoner background classification? Explain.
NIC, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD), and ICJC worked with eight states over a 7-year period to develop, pilot-test, implement, and evaluate internal prison classification systems. Seven unique models were tested. [ Florida, Connecticut, and Colorado developed computerized objective, behavior-based models for housing and program assignments. Oregon developed an
objective model based on behavioral and compatibility indicators for its female population, although preliminary results suggest that the system works equally well for its male population. New Jersey developed a behavior-based model for identifying the aggression levels of its maximum-custody inmates. Washington state analyzed the utility of the Adult Internal Management System (AIMS) for case management of minimum-custody inmates with long sentences. South Dakota and Missouri developed a personality-based system, the Adult Internal Classification System (AICS), modeled after AIMS. ]

Accreditation is one of several processes developed to address the prison oversight issues. Accreditation as an oversight function provides and verifies the standards that an organization is required to meet to be publicly recognized as conforming to professional mandates. The American Correctional Association (ACA) performs this function with regard to the general operation of correctional facilities.
