  13. Where to Place Most Serious Offenders • Forecasts predict an increase of 600 high-security offenders in the next two years • Increase due to longer sentences received by serious offenders • IDOC is out of available celled space. • Adjusting classification to fit population

  14. Managing Population • Facility Forward • Retooled disciplinary sanctions • Created STOP unit • Added less-than-ideal bed locations • Changed classification procedures to fit capacity • Increased Community Corrections diversions

  15. Managing Population • Reduced technical parole revocations in favor of alternative sanctions • Increased array of earned credit time programs (DOL and PLUS) • Strategically targeted sentence modifications through initiatives like “Incarceration with a Purpose”
