Inmate Transfers

View Page Navigation

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.
