This document from the Kansas Sentencing Commission presents data on the 10-year projections for inmate custody classifications in the State's Department of Corrections.
This report presents custody classification projections for fiscal year (FY) 2012 through FY 2021. The custody classification projections address the types of beds that the State will need to cover the total number of beds that the State projects it will need for the 10-year period. The bed classifications include maximum, medium high, medium low, minimum, special management, and unclassified beds. The projected classifications by bed type show that by the end of FY 2012, the State will need 338 unclassified beds, 606 special management beds, 1,084 maximum beds, 1,621 medium high beds, 2,561 medium low beds, and 2,494 minimum beds for 8,704 male inmates. By the end of FY 2021, the male prison population is expected to reach 10,366, of which 364 unclassified beds, 802 special management beds, 1,215 maximum beds, 2,247 medium high beds, 2,868 medium low beds and 2,870 minimum beds will be needed. For FY 2012, the female prison population is expected to be 700, of which 26 unclassified beds, 16 special management beds, 79 maximum beds, 75 medium high beds, 144 medium low beds and 360 minimum beds will be needed. By FY 2021, the projected classification of beds for females inmates (n=918) is expected to be 34 unclassified beds, 35 special management beds, 115 maximum beds, 112 medium high beds, 198 medium low beds and 424 minimum beds. Three sets of data were used for establishing these projections: initial classification data, current classification data, and any reclassification data during the preceding 1-year period.
