11 Key Operational Concerns Medical Unit Capacity Medical Unit Capacity Overcrowding and the increased need for bed space have led to the current operational practice which results in the utilization of nearly two-thirds of the medical unit bed space for inmates not requiring medical services. The proposed construction allows for proper cell configuration for inmates requiring medical care.

12 Key Operational Concerns Holding Cell Capacity Holding Cell Capacity Continual overcrowding, have led to the utilization of 50-60% of the facility’s holding cells for high-risk inmates. This proposal will address the necessity for high- risk observation cells, allowing the current holding cells to be utilized for their intended purpose.

13 Key Operational Concerns Intake, Booking and Property Intake, Booking and Property The current booking area is in need of updated service and task space. This proposal provides for an updated and expanded booking/intake area. The plan also includes expanded property and records storage capacity.

14 Key Operational Concerns Laundry and Food Service Capacity Laundry and Food Service Capacity Expanded and improved laundry and food services are planned for and are included in this plan.

15 Key Operational Concerns Inmate Services and Counseling Inmate Services and Counseling The increased inmate capacity will require additional staff and space for the provision of a broader range of services offered to inmates. This plan includes additional programming space.

16 Key Operational Concerns Visiting Visiting Increased capacity will require increased capacity for professional and personal inmate visits. This plan includes new technology to provide for these visits without the movement of the inmates.

17 Key Operational Concerns Improvements to Existing Facility Improvements to Existing Facility A thorough analysis will be necessary prior to making a final determination on infrastructure improvements. This plan should reduce the need for expensive infrastructure improvements to the existing facility.

18 Key Operational Concerns Staffing Additional staff will be phased incrementally as capacity increases. Staffing projections will require the approval of the Department of Corrections and will be presented upon further review of the proposed construction. Configuration of the new units will be done as to minimize staff levels.
