As a result of these considerations, the inmate population at WMCI will be separated into housing units, as shown in Table 1.
The expansion of existing in-state prisons, in conjunction with the construction of WMCI, will bring inmates with similar levels of needs together in a single location where staff resources can be shared, rather than duplicated.
Following initial processing at the new WMCI intake and assessment center, inmates will be assigned to WMCI or elsewhere according to the needs identified within their individualized case plans.
