Question and answer
Identify the four types of prisons?
The exact classification systems differ between county, state, and federal systems. [ Some common types of prisons include: Supermax: As the name implies, the custody level goes beyond Maximum by segregating the "worst of the worst" criminals and terrorists who pose a threat to national security. These inmates have individual cells and are kept in lockdown for 23 hours per day. Meals are served
through "chuck holes" in the cell door, and each inmate is permitted out of their cell for one hour of exercise per day, alone. They are permitted no contact with other inmates and are under constant surveillance via closed-circuit television cameras. Administrative: Administrative security is a classification of prisons or detention centers that are for a specific purpose, such as housing mentally ill offenders. These range in levels of security from Minimum to Administrative Maximum Security (ADMAX), as in the case of ADX Florence in Colorado. Maximum: A custody level in which both design and construction as well as inmate classification reflect the need to provide maximum external and internal control and supervision of inmates primarily through the use of high security perimeters and extensive use of internal physical barriers and check points. Inmates accorded this status present serious escape risks or pose serious threats to themselves, to other inmates, to staff, or the orderly running of the institution. Supervision of inmates is direct and constant. ]

Six forms of punishment: Intensive supervistion (Probation, parole, house arrest), Incarceration, Rehabilitation (drug rehab, counseling, etc), Restitution and fines, Capital punishment, and alternative punishments ( detailing the crime while standing in a conspicuous location, completing community service or participating in programs aimed at helping the convicted realize how their crime hurts themselves and society)

Shifa, capital punishment and death sentence are the same thing. I do not know what you mean by transportation)
Added 7/16/2011 5:41:09 PM
I found the first four from an article, death sentence was my mistake. I found "transportation" in another article where they were referring to sending the person to a far place away from home but that was used before 18th century. Your answer certainly is perfect. Thanks.
