Annotation: IN THIS MANUAL, FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS PERSONNEL ARE INSTRUCTED IN THE PREPARATION AND SUBMITTAL OF THREE CUSTODY CLASSIFICATION FORMS USED BY THE DEPARTMENT.
Abstract: THE FORMS ARE THE INITIAL INMATE CLASSIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE (IICQ), DETERMINING THE FIRST OFFICIAL ASSIGNMENT OF CUSTODY; THE INMATE CLASSIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE (ICQ), FOR ALL SUBSEQUENT CLASSIFICATIONS; AND THE REPORT OF INMATE CLASSIFICATION ACTION, A WRITTEN RECORD OF ASSIGNMENT OR REASSIGNMENT OF CUSTODY. THE IICQ AND ICQ CONSIST OF 15 AND 19 TRUE-FALSE QUESTIONS, RESPECTIVELY, HAVING POINT VALUES; SCORES ARE OBTAINED BY ADDING UP POINTS. EACH CUSTODY CATEGORY FALLS INTO A CERTAIN POINT RANGE. THE FIRST SECTION OF THE IICQ REPORTS THE INMATES' ESCAPE RECORD, WHETHER THEY HAVE BEEN SENTENCED TO DEATH OR FOR LIFE, OR ARE PSYCHOTIC. OTHER QUESTIONS FROM THE IICQ REPORT THE INMATES' REASONS FOR IMPRISONMENT, SENTENCES, HISTORIES, AND VARIOUS DANGEROUS OR ANTISOCIAL CHARACTER TRAITS. THE ICQ IS SIMILAR, WITH A THIRD SECTION REPORTING PRIOR PRISON BEHAVIOR. ALL QUESTIONS FROM BOTH QUESTIONNAIRES ARE PRESENTED AND DISCUSSED, AND DEFINITIONS GIVEN FOR THE DANGEROUS OR ANTISOCIAL TRAITS. FINALLY, THE REPORT OF INMATE CLASSIFICATION ACTION REQUIRES PERTINENT DATES, INMATE PERSONAL INFORMATION, THE SCORE FROM THE ICQ OR IICQ, AND ALLOWS MODIFICATION OF THE CUSTODY INDICATED BY THE QUESTIONNAIRE SCORE. APPENDIXES CONTAIN SAMPLES OF QUESTIONNAIRES AND THE ACTION REPORT, AS WELL AS A LIST OF FLORIDA CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES. (PAP)
