Objective Jail Classification
The Campbell County Detention Center utilizes the Objective Jail Classification (OJC) method to classify its inmates.
There are several benefits that OJC brings to the Detention Center:
- Protection of the public safety
- Reduction in institutional violence
- Increased behavioral compliance
- Well maintained, sanitary facility
- Delivery of a constitutional standard of care
- A safer and better work environment
- Reduced litigation
The officers who arrest and deliver the inmates to the jail are involved in OJC. They are asked numerous questions during the booking process and their participation increases the effectiveness of the OJC method.
The Campbell County Detention Center uses three levels of classification: minimum, medium, and maximum.
- Minimum: Poses little threat to the public or institutional safety. Inmate has a current charge of a non-violent nature and conviction history void of violent felony.
- Medium: Poses moderate threat to the public and institutional safety. Inmate has a current charge of a violent nature and a conviction history of a violent felony conviction and/or institutional behavior problems of an alert status.
- Maximum: Poses a high threat to the community or institutional safety. Inmate has a current charge of a violent felony nature and/or a conviction history of violent felony convictions and/or institutional behavior problems of an alert status.
