G2 is general population and J1-5 are the classification levels for state jail offenders. With TDC offenders its S1-S4

I've never heard of "J" custody levels. It is G1-G5. There is a thread on these but generally it is as follows

G1 (formerly minimum-out): trustees
G2 (formerly minimum-in): Offenders with less than 50 years. If more than 50 year sentence, 3g offenders must have 10 years flat time in, or if non-3g, five years flat time served.

G3 Offenders with 50+ years who do not have enough flat time served in TDC to qualify for G2 status (see above)

G4 (formerly medium custody)
G5 (formerly closed custody)

Tth-If he's a newbie, he's probably a G2. That's what most inmates go in as (unless they are put in Ad Seg) or catch a case early on.

You can call classification @ 936-437-6231. They can tell you what his classification is right now, but being he just got there he is probably just first level. We didn't get to the S2 until 6 months in. Have you gone to the TDCJ website. I can't post the address, because it says that you have to have a certain number of post, but there is a offender manual in there, and a family manual. There is really a lot of information in there, and it's tends to be kind of helpful (for me at least).

G1 through G5 in an ID unit is the same as J1 through J5 in state jail except there is no J3. The S1 through S4 is good time earning status and not custody level. G2 is general population and where just about everyone starts. Make trusty and you move to G1 or get in trouble and you move to G4 or G5 which, as jobeez posted, is medium and close custody. Basically, custody level is the level of security in place where someone lives. Lower custody level means more freedom to move and higher custody means less.

Classification is a collection of things that include good time earning status (line class) and custody level. Don't let it confuse you more but good time earning status is actually broken into two different classifications: One is Line class, which is L1, L2 and L3, and the other is state approved trusty, which are the SAT4, SAT3, SAT2, SAT1 designations (or just S4 thru S1). However, most folks just call good time earning status "line class" and leave it at that. Custody levels are as jobezee listed above, G1 thru G5 and don't forget Ad Seg. By the way, do not confuse the term "state approved trusty" when talking about good time earning status with being a trusty on a unit. There is a correlation but not an obvious one. Someone that lives and/or works as a trusty on a unit will be at custody level G1 and good time earning status S2.
