The Inmate Records Section-Administrator Christin Richards
The Inmate Records Section consists of the Classifications Unit, and the Objective Classifications Unit.
The Classifications Unit is responsible for the maintenance of all inmate files throughout the inmate's incarceration. All time credits are calculated and all court documents are placed in the inmate's file.
The Objective Classifications Unit assesses each inmate that has extended time in the Polk County Jail to determine their custody levels and continually reassess them when incidents occur that may change their level.
In 2011, the Classifications Unit processed 40,922 court snap-outs (sentencing documents), calculated 6,797 inmate credits and outdates, notified 4,977 victims of inmate statuses, and sent 1,551 inmates to State Prison. The Objective Classifications Unit assessed and reassessed 19,913 inmates.
