Custody LevelsDetermined by a scoring system and professional assessment that reflects the degree of supervision appropriate for an offender. Factors for consideration include, but are not limited to severity of offense, length of sentence, characteristics of sentence, criminal history, age and behavior. The five custody levels of an offender are:
  1. Community: Community custody refers to that class of inmates who are eligible for placement at a community residential facility.
  2. Minimum: Minimum custody refers to that class of inmates who are eligible for outside work assignments but not for placement at a community residential facility.
  3. Medium: Medium custody refers to that class of inmates who are eligible for placement at a work camp with a secure perimeter but who are not eligible for placement in an outside work assignment without armed supervision.
  4. Close: Close custody refers to that class of inmates who must be maintained within an armed perimeter or under direct, armed supervision when outside of a secure perimeter.
  5. Maximum: Maximum custody refers to that class of inmates who are under a sentence of death.

Question What does mininum custody mean??

I just saw my man's D.O.C webpage and it says custody is mininum. Is that a good things??? He's still in Lake Butler R.M.C-West and I hope they'll keep him there because Lake Butler is not that far from me. But I was just wondering what minunum custody entitles to. If anyone can help answer this question, would appreciate it! Thanks!

And, I got another letter from him today. He seems to write me a letter every other day. I told him to pick a day in the middle of the week, and write me. But I guess he likes getting letters from me

Post #2 has the definition of all the custody levels. This link to the DOC website, http://www.dc.state.fl.us/oth/inmates/custody.html#1, explains how custody levels change, etc.

Chances are now that his custody has been established he won't be at RMC much longer.

What?? He might be leaving RMC soon??? ugh.....where do you think they'll send him? Because he wants to do that drug core programs or rehab but I don't know any facilitys around me that offers those type of programs he wants to take. He told me last time I spoke with him that might be going to gainesville. But I don't know. I hope he won't be moving to far

Jenny most of the guys end up in region 1 or 2. most of the inmates are from central and south florida. I would not expect your guy to be to in one of close ones, one of the highest crime area is around is the tampa St. petersburg area i heard that on the radio this afternoon on my way to work. i would have thought Miami would have it but its not. Not sure where you are but i hope you are one of the lucky one and they put him down the road from you.

if things don't stop happening in my life it may be another year before i get to see my man.

My guy writes me every day he does not have anything else to do so he puts all his feelings and fears into his letters. Don't let him stop writing to you that much it will keep him straight and on the right track.

With minimum custody he has the opportunity to be evaluated and dropped, depending on his crime and length of sentence, to community custody which opens up Work Release opportunities.

Default What is the difference in the custody levels?

Question what is the difference in the custody levels? Also when do they change or get lowered? Just wondering how that works and is the level based on the crime?

I think it depends on several things, such as the crime the committed, how much time they got, if they have any detainers, etc...I know as their time gets shorter and they stay out of trouble, the custody level drops...If they get a DR, that can cause the custody to go up...

Correct. My husband is hoping his custody level can drop to Community by December so he can get on the list for work release.
