Offenders sentenced to the Mississippi Department of Corrections are brought to CMCF where they are processed through the Receiving and Classification unit. Each offender is thoroughly screened and tested for STD, HIV, and other medical conditions, provided a psychiatric evaluation and questioned regarding their educational level. The results of these tests, along with the offender’s conviction and institutional behavior, help establish the classification of each inmate.

Of the three state prisons, CMCF is the only facility to house female inmates. CMCF houses females classified to all custody levels, including A and B custody (minimum and medium security), C and D custody (maximum security) and death row. All female offenders sentenced to death are housed at CMCF.

The prison also houses minimum and medium security male offenders (A and B custody), as well as some maximum security offenders (C custody).
