yes, it is possible to be re-classified, but it takes a lot of follow-up -- and-- the help of the classification office. if you can get the classification on board then it will be easier.

sorry, i left out officer.... get the classification officer on board. it would be best if your husband requests it and for you to follow up (persistantly!) on his behalf. stay in touch with his classification officer, be very cooperative, and provide him proof of why you're requesting a change. also, if you don't have the cooperation of the classification officer you can request to speak to the head of the department and/or email the warden. i didn't start seeing any real 'attention' until i emailed the warden and head of the classification department. let me know if you have more questions... hope this helps.

I'm a little confused, too? As someone else asked, are you talking his custody level? If so, custody level is determined by many things not just the inmate personally. The crime plays a big factor in custody as well. If you think his custody is too high, most times they can lower their custody throughout incarceration with good behaviour, completing classes and good progress reviews. This has to be recommended by their classification officer.

Is he in Fl? I have heard of that code being used in other states but as far as I know here it is max to community.

I asked Ben about this today. The only thing he could think of was maybe your husband meant his security level is 3, which is medium.

Well, there's several different classification levels and grades...

Marty is a lifer so he'll always be close custody. Florida has community, medium, close and maximum, if I'm not mistaken.

And, his psych grade changes from time to time. He cut himself once to go psych and get a transfer, that put him at a level 3. Now, he is a level 1. I think Florida has 5 psych levels.

Then, there is some kind of classification that runs from HO1 - HO5. Marty was an HO5 for sixteen years and was always in a two man cell, never could go beyond the first gate without shackles, wasn't allowed to have many jobs, etc. Then, about six weeks ago they lowered that to an HO3. Now, he can actually have a job. He is amazed at the difference in living in an open bay dorm setting vs. a two man cell dorm.

I have no idea what an S3 is unless he is referring to the psych grade. Of which, he should be on some kind of psychotropic medication.

And, to answer your question, this will all be reviewed on an annual (for long timers or lifers) or bi-annual (for short timers) review. He can request to have an early review, but I'd be willing to bet they will want to wait for the next review. There's no harm in asking though.
