Developing Gender-Specific Classification Systems for Women Offenders
Patricia L. Hardyman (au); Patricia Van Voorhis (au)
Since 1990, the number of incarcerated women has increased by 108%, while the number of incarcerated men has increased 77%. Correctional systems remain ill equipped to address the security, programming, & unique needs presented by women offenders. Correctional classification systems (CS) have not provided necessary information about women offenders, were not adapted to women & were not useful in matching women to appropriate custody levels or programming. While objective prison CS for male offenders were well established in virtually every state, there is a critical need for similar systems for women. This is a national assessment of current practices for classifying women offenders & technical assistance to improve CS in 7 states.
