Females and Juveniles

Female prisoners have different risk Categories, called Restrictive Status, Closed Status and Open Status and these correspond roughly with Cat A, Cat B&C, and Cat D. The same IEP status rules apply, with the exception of being allowed to wear non prison clothing at all IEP levels. Women with small children, or those who are heavily pregnant may be held in special “Mother and Baby “ units.

Finally juveniles are further split into those under 17 and those above. If you are over 21 you are treated as an adult. As you may expect, juveniles are treated in a more “user friendly” manner than adults and each juvenile prison has its own induction and regime rules.
