Sheriff of Monroe County

[CORE-2A-20]

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to objectively classify inmates/detainees safely and humanly for inmate/detainee housing and programs according to their assessment within 24 hours after intake unless extenuating circumstances (e.g., hurricane) exist. [FCAC 14.02a] The objective jail classification process is uniform for all inmates/detainees and follows the inmate/detainee throughout his or her incarceration. [ALDF-4D-22-1] [CORE-4D-14]

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Classification Personnel and Marathon/Plantation Key (KV/PK) Intake/Release (I/R) Deputies.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Classification Supervisor and KV/PK Intake/Release Deputies.

DEFINITION:

Objective Jail Classification - A process of assessing every jail inmate/detainee’s custody and program needs using locally developed and validated instruments, one at intake and another after a period of confinement to identify the level of risk and needs presented by an inmate/ detainee so that appropriate housing and program assignments can be made.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Newly admitted inmates/detainees are separated from the general population during the admission process. Inmates/detainees are assigned to initial holding settings according to their immediate security needs, physical and mental condition, and other considerations. Inmates/detainees will not be assigned to long- term housing until after they are classified. [ALDF-2A-22]

Classification Interview Screen

The Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will circle all items on the Classification Interview Screen that pertains to the inmate/ detainee (e.g., religious preference and educational information). If the answer is "Yes", the Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will forward the information to the appropriate division.

Identifies the inmate’s interest and eligibility to participate in available programs. [FCAC 14.02c][CORE 2A-16]

After the Classification Interview Screen is completed, the Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will assess the inmate/ detainee by completing the Classification Decision Tree.

Classification Decision Tree [FCAC 15.12] [ALDF-2A-30] [CORE-2A-16]

The Classification Decision Tree is initially used prior to an inmate/detainee being placed a Housing Unit. [FCAC 14.02]

The decision tree may also be used to update and review an inmate/detainee’s initial classification assessment.

The Classification Decision Tree is based upon the Classification Personnel / KV/PK I/R Deputy's assessment of eight security levels (two maximum, three medium and three minimum) depending on the inmate/detainee.

Each inmate/detainee is classified using verifiable and documented data according to the following guidelines:

Current charges - Felony or misdemeanor and assaultive behavior

Criminal History (includes prior assaultive and felony convictions and escape history)

Past/present institutional behavior

Pending detainer(s)

Sentencing status - Pre (unsentenced) or

post (sentenced)

Family ties or employment

Special conditions (includes medical status, mental and emotional stability, protective

custody, risk of sexual abusiveness/victimization, elderly, and juveniles) [ALFD-7D-19]

The above items have been found to be associated with future conduct and thus help identify the types of risk likely to be presented by

the inmate/detainee. When considered together, these items also help determine the extent of risk likely to be presented by the items used in combination with other specified information when making decisions relating to the inmate/detainee.

In determining where to house a transgender or intersex inmate, the above classification criteria along with a case-by-case basis, ensuring the inmate’s health and safety, and determining whether the placement would present management and/or security problems are taken into account. [BOC 8:031]

A transgender or intersex inmate’s own views with respect to his or her own safety shall be given serious consideration. [BOC 8:031][Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-

79) §115.429(e)]

An inmate/detainee’s classification can reward the inmate/detainee for positive behavior and can affect the inmate/detainee’s access to programs.

Depending on the circumstances, the inmate/ detainee’s classification recommendation level may be overridden by the supervisor who may assign a different classification level, either higher or lower, from that which is indicated by the decision tree. Rationale must be given on overrides.

Instructions for completing the Classification Decision Tree

The Decision Tree must be completed on initial assessments. You may complete a new Decision Tree for reassessments, but it is not

Override: If the Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy believes there are factors that warrant a custody classification which is different from that which is indicated by the tree, the Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will circle "Yes" or "No". If "Yes", provide rationale and forward to the Classification Supervisor / KV/PK I/R

Sergeant for approval/disapproval. Overrides may be recommended to higher or lower classification levels, depending upon the circumstances.

Supervisor: The Classification Supervisor / KV/PK I/R Sergeant will then indicate "Approved" or "Disapproved" for the override and rationale and sign it.

High Risk: The Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will circle one or more of the boxes listed as it pertains to the inmate/ detainee.

Special Condition: The Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will circle one of the boxes listed as it pertains to the inmate/detainee. [ALFD-7D-19]

Classification: Enter the inmate/detainee’s classification level once determined according to the decision tree.

Classified by: The Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy completing the decision tree will enter his or her name

in a legible manner.

When the Classification Decision Tree is completed, the Classification Clerk/Deputy / KV/PK I/R Deputy will give the inmate/detainee the green copy and file the original form (white copy) in the inmate/detainee’s classification file.

Classification Reassessment Scale [FCAC 14.02d] [ADLF-2A-31] [CORE-2A-16]

The Classification Reassessment Scale is used to update and review an inmate/detainee’s initial classification assessment. The reassessment scale is completed when new information affecting the inmate/detainee’s management is received (e.g., detainers or conviction on current charge, behavior). Classification will complete a reassessment for the following reasons: [BOC 8:031]

Referrals

Requests

Incidents of sexual abuse

Additional information that bears on the inmate’s risk of abusiveness or victimization

Every six months for transgender and intersex inmates

Classification reassessment does not necessarily result in a change of classification level or housing assignment. Its primary function is to monitor the inmate/detainee’s adjustment and bring attention to problems that may arise.

Classification reassessment is similar to initial classification assessment, but places greater emphasis on institutional conduct to reflect the inmate/detainee’s actual behavior while confined.

Reassessments may be warranted by disciplinary actions or when classification status is affected by additional charges or the disposition of charges. Also, reassessment may be done due to an inmate/detainee’s request when appropriate and applicable.

Instructions for completing the Classification Reassessment Scale

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish a guideline for sentenced inmates to be rewarded gain time based upon length of sentence, productive and acceptable work performance, behavior, and participation in educational programs as prescribed by Florida law. Pre-trial inmates participating in inmate worker work programs and educational programs may also accrue gain time which shall be awarded if sentenced. Inmates will not be compensated monetarily, with special housing, or with extra privileges. [ALDF-5C-12]

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Classification Personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Classification Supervisor.

DEFINITIONS:

Statutory Gain Time - Standardized reduction in sentence awarded to sentenced inmates at the rate of five (5) days per month as per Florida State Statues.

Work/Good Time - Additional gain time awarded to a sentenced inmate worker at the rate of ten (10) days per month for satisfactory

performance of work, duties, and tasks assigned or if they cannot work for any reason (e.g., handicap, medical, protective custody) but obey all established rules and regulations. [ALDF-5C- 12]

Program Extra Gain Time - Gain time that may be awarded to a sentenced inmate for participation and satisfactory completion in approved educational programs or various other self-betterment programs approved by the Bureau of Corrections. An inmate worker participating in programs beyond his or her normal workday is also eligible for extra gain time.

Credit for Time - The amount of time to be deducted from an inmate's sentence for incarceration prior to sentencing.

Concurrent Sentences - Multiple sentences running at the same time with one another.

Consecutive Sentences - Multiple sentences succeeding one another.

Contempt of Court (Civil) - An inmate charged with civil contempt completes a day of his or her sentence at the same time of the day when he or she was taken into jail custody for booking. No gain or credit time is to be awarded.

Contempt of Court (Criminal) - An inmate charged with criminal contempt completes a day of his or her sentence at midnight and is not eligible for gain time or credit time.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Statutory Gain Time

Statutory gain time is automatically credited at the rate of five (5) days per month once an inmate has been sentenced.

Statutory gain time will be computed by the Classification Division. Statutory gain time will be computed according to the Statutory Gain Time Table (see attachment 1).

Work/Good Time [ALDF-5C-12]

Work/good time will be awarded to inmate workers and vocational program participants at the rate of up to ten (10) days for each month of satisfactory work performance. If the inmate is unable to work (e.g., handicap, medical, protective custody) but obeys all established rules and regulations the above work/gain time will apply.

Forfeiture of work/good time for unsatisfactory performance or behavior by sentenced inmate workers will not be withheld unless it has been documented and the inmate has been afforded a hearing before the disciplinary committee which will recommend appropriate action for review by the Operations Commander.

Work/good time will be calculated from the remaining time of the sentence (which includes statutory gain time and credit for time served).

All calculations for date of releases are generated in the computer under the Classification Division.

If the computer is down, a manual computation will be generated by completing the Work/Good Time Manual Calculation Form.

Credit for Time

Jail Credit - An inmate shall be allowed credit for all time spent in any Florida County Jail, providing incarceration is for a Monroe County

offense(s) only. This jail credit will be for the detaining charge(s). If credit is awarded for another county, it will be up to the magistrate or the attorney to indicate number of days’ credit.

Modification of Probation - When a violation results in a modification of the terms of probation to include jail time, the inmate shall receive credit for all allowable jail time.

Concurrent Sentences - When an inmate is sentenced on multiple charges, he or she is only entitled to credit against each sentence for the time spent in jail for the charge that led to that sentence.

Consecutive Sentences - When an inmate is held in jail on multiple charges, and at disposition receives consecutive sentences, he or she is only entitled to credit as per the magistrate order.

Credit Time Allowed for Time Served in Another Jurisdiction - Although the trial judge has inherent discretionary authority to award credit for time served in other jurisdictions, the inmate is not entitled to credit for time served under sentence of another jurisdiction even though a detainer has been placed on him/her by the demanding county. For example, a defendant serving a sentence in another county or another state is deprived of his freedom because of the sentence he or she is required to serve in that county or state and not because of county charges, detainers, or warrants unless the judge having jurisdiction over the county charge so decrees.

Contempt of Court (Civil) - An inmate charged with civil contempt completes a day of his or her sentence at the same time of the day when he or she was taken into jail custody for booking. No gain or credit time is to be awarded.

Contempt of Court (Criminal) - An inmate charged with criminal contempt completes a day of his or her sentence at midnight and is not eligible for gain time and credit time.

Whenever a sentence lacks clarity as to the judge's intentions regarding credit time, clarification will be obtained from the sentencing judge.
