Default Inmate Points & Custody Level Determination Worksheets

The attached files are sample forms used to determine points and therefore custody levels pulled from Title 15.

Per the DOM:
61010.8.1 When to Use the CDC Form 839
Processing Newly Received Felon Inmates

All felon inmates who are newly received in the CDCR shall be scored on a CDC Form 839. An inmate who has served a prior term in the CDCR, but whose commitment is subsequently discharged, shall be processed as a newly received felon inmate. Parole Violators will not be scored on the CDC Form 839. Parole Violators Returned to Custody (PVRTC) and Parole Violators With a New Term (PVWNT) will be scored on the CDC Form 841.

61010.8.2 When to use the CDC Form 840
The CDC Form 840 shall be completed as part of the regular reclassification process. It is intended to provide a cumulative record of the inmate's institutional adjustment and changes in case factors. A CDC Form 840 shall also be completed on each of the following:
• An escapee.
• A Community Correctional Reentry Center (CCRC) failure.

61010.8.3 When to use the CDC Form 841
The CDC Form 841 is prepared when an inmate’s parole status has been revoked, the inmate has been returned from parole to a reception center, and the parole period has been suspended. A CDC Form 841 shall also be completed for an inmate whose parole is lawfully revoked because he/she refused to sign conditions of parole. If the inmate is not physically paroled to the community, the inmate’s status shows that he/she has been paroled, revoked, and returned the same day.

A CDC Form 841 shall not be completed for any of the following cases:
• An inmate returned to the CDCR, but then Continued On Parole (COP) by the BPH.
• A parolee who was revoked by the BPH, but not returned to the CDCR.
• An inmate who has been returned to the CDCR from parole, but is still considered a "parolee." Examples of these situations are a SATCU case returned for drug treatment/"dry out" or an inmate returned for "psych treatment" only. In these types of situations, the inmate's parole period continues uninterrupted.
***CDC 839 asks for "Term in Years." Section 61010.11. of the he DOM specifically states to "Drop the months and use full years." So for a 16 month sentence, you would input "1" for 1 year and for a 32 month sentence, you would input "2" for 2 years, etc. That number is then multiplied by 2 and entered into box 33. Enter "0" for a sentence less than one year.

Per Title 15:
3375.1. Inmate Placement.
(a) Except as provided in section 3375.2, each inmate shall be assigned to a facility with a security level, which corresponds to the following placement score ranges:
(1) An inmate with a placement score of 0 through 18 shall be placed in a Level I facility.
(2) An inmate with a placement score of 19 through 27 shall be placed in a Level II facility.
(3) An inmate with a placement score of 28 through 51 shall be placed in a Level III facility.
(4) An inmate with a placement score of 52 and above shall be placed in a Level IV facility.
