The medium-security level is where there is intermittent internal inmate supervision. However, they are considered less harmful to the community than the maximum-level inmates. At the maximum-security level, there is continuous internal supervision of inmates as the inmates are considered dangerous to the institutions and the public (Carter, 2019). The administrative level is the national supermax prison which includes the maximum-security administrative penitentiary (ADX). ADX provides extreme security for the most notorious inmates. At this level, prisoners are not allowed out of their cells, and mostly they are under 24-hour supervision.
I believe that levels of crime should separate prisoners to ensure there is security and protection of people’s liberty. Also, it makes it easy for the management to control the prisons. It is also crucial in controlling and preserving the innocence of those untried hence providing the most appropriate environment for each detainee (Separation of detainees | Association for the Prevention of Torture n.d.). Separation protects detainees from any threat due to age, sex, or health condition.
