Inmate Transfers

 

Inmate Transfers

There are several factors that determine where an inmate is housed to serve their sentence.  These factors include, but are not limited to:

  •  
Crime conviction
  •  
Custody level and inmate behavior
  •  
Medical condition
  •  
Court ordered treatment
  •  
Work program

An inmate may be transferred at any given time based on whether the inmate has an increase or decrease in custody level, takes part in a specific program located at another facility, or if there are other special circumstances on a case by case basis.
