Correctional institutions historically have used external classification systems to determine the security and custody level of an offender's placement. Methods of internal classification--determining housing, programming, and work assignments within a facility--often have been more informal, subjective, less standardized, and more inconsistent. Inmate assaults and subsequent litigation in many states, along with an increased emphasis on offender rehabilitation, have highlighted the need for structured internal classification systems to complement existing mechanisms for external classification., prepared by Laura Engleman [and four others], "April 2013.", Includes bibliographical references: pages 9-32., Online resource; title from PDF cover (viewed August 2017)
This study examines whether prison sexual offending behaviors are predictive of violence upon release. Recidivism rates for four groups of male sex offenders were compared: (1) offenders convicted of community sex crimes; (2) community sex offenders who were convicted under non-sex crime charges; (3) offenders known only to commit sexually abusive misconduct in prison and, (4) offenders with both community and prison sex offenses. The findings reveal that prison sex offenders are significantly more likely to be arrested for violent offenses upon release. They pose a similar risk to convicted sex offenders on arrests for sexual offenses; however, the average time to arrest was much shorter for prison sex offenders., "April 2009.", Includes bibliographical references (p. 20-21)

Caption title., "December 15, 2006.", "This information is generally published in the statistical report annually in tables 59 through 64. Since the next statistical report will combine data for fiscal years 2004-05 and 2005-06, the facility profiles will contain the June 30, 2006 populations as the most recent information. Therefore the 2005 facility profiles will not be formally published. This document provides the facility profile information for the June 30, 2005 population and is comparable to the information contained in tables 59-64 of previously published statistical reports.", Mode of access: World Wide Web.

During the late 20th century, assignment to Administrative Segregation -- in some states known as solitary confinement -- was standard protocol for difficult, dangerous offenders. In 2011, philosophies regarding Administrative Segregation began to shift. The late Tom Clements, then executive director of CDOC, felt that change was in order for Colorado. In 2011, the Colorado legislature laid the foundation for Administrative Segregation overhaul in the form of Senate Bill 11-176, which set forth guidelines for reclassification efforts and the awarding of earned time. The bill mandated significant changes, the likes of which few U.S. departments of correction had adopted. The reforms have been implemented over the course of 2 years at various stages. The initial results are worth celebrating. There were no suicides in Restrictive Housing in the last year. The rate of assaults on staff, across the agency, are half of what they were in 2006. The average length of stay in Restrictive housing is currently approximately 7 ư months and less than 1% of the CDOC population is housed in Restrictive Housing. Something that we are doing is working., written by Rick Raemisch, Kellie Wasko., Online resource; title from PDF caption (viewed August 2018)
