The Department of Corrections has twenty-five institutions and they are categorized into four distinct security levels: high security (level 3), medium security (level 2), minimum security (level 1B) and community-based pre-release/work centers (level 1A). The architectural design of the institution, type of housing, operational procedures, and the level of security staffing determine an institution´s security level. Inmates are assigned to institutions to meet their specific security, programming, medical, educational, and work requirements.
