PLEASE NOTE: With the exception of Maximum Security, the three main considerations in assigning an adult offender to a security level are the committing offense, the length of sentence, and prior criminal history.
Minimum Security (Level 1)
Minimum Security Facilities have the least restrictive security measures. Housing is dormitory-style. Also included as minimum security are work release program offenders who leave the facility for outside employment but return nightly.

Intake facilities are designated to receive newly committed adult offenders. During the intake process each offender is evaluated through interviews, reports and diagnostic tests. This evaluation forms the basis of the offenders' facility and program assignment.
