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
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. ]
