Default Separation in state

I my fiancé is in county right now and will be heading to Camp Hill for classification. I know he could possibly by transferred again to his home prison. I was wondering do they separate inmate by types of crime, at Camp Hill and other state prisons.

He will more than likely go from county to Graterford first where he will be assigned his state number etc, from there (a few weeks or more) he will then go to Camp Hill for classification. When first getting there will more than likely be held in medical quarantine for about one week then put on a block with others to be classified. About 4 to 8 weeks later (sometimes less sometimes more depending on the inmate's situation) will be sent to his home prison and spend his time there.

As far as separating inmates by types of crimes is not usually done unless there are special circumstances related to that individual maybe holding him in segregation due to the fact that his crime was very well publicized and it is for his safety he is held in solitary or administrative housing unit.

State prisons really don't have the room to keep all inmates separate according to their crimes. That is basically what classification is all about. They grade the inmate from 2 to 5 security level. 2 being the least and 5 the most secure facility. So if he is classified as level 3 he will be sent to a level 3 facility where other level 3 inmates will be spending their sentence.

I would suggest you read up on the forums for more general information which will help you understand how the system works. I can see this is your first post so you more than likely have many questions.
