The Population Management Division/Classification Branch is responsible for overseeing classification actions in all state institutions, contract facilities, and full-service county jails and for monitoring the Assessment/Classification Centers at Roederer Correctional Complex, Kentucky Correctional Institution for Women and Ross-Cash Center. This Division is also responsible for monitoring the population of these facilities for appropriate use of bed space.
Inmate custody levels are determined through an objective based risk
instrument that was developed with the assistance of the National Institute of Corrections (NIC). The classification manual is reviewed and updated in accordance with recommendations from validity and reliability studies.
