WAYNE COUNTY JAIL CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM
Classification is the process in which inmates are separated according to their current charges, previous history, and any behavioral issues. Inmates are separated in order to keep inmates that have committed violent crimes away from inmates that have committed lesser crimes. If an inmate is deemed to be a behavioral or security problem, measures are taken to isolate that inmate from other inmates.
Waived juvenile (Red jumpsuit)
Inmates under the age of 18 wear red jumpsuits, because their charges are severe enough that the courts have ordered they be treated and tried as an adult. This color will be worn until they reach the age of 18, and the judge from the presiding court authorizes that the color and essentially their classification be change according to their charge. While an inmate has the classification as a juvenile, they will be placed on protective custody due to them being under the age of 18. (Note: Protective Custody will be explained in another paragraph)
Inmate worker (Blue jumpsuit)
Inmates have the opportunity to become an inmate worker while incarcerated in the Wayne County Detention Center. However, there are some criteria that the inmates have to meet in order to qualify. Inmate workers are given some freedoms, but they are still considered inmates, and still adhere to the rules and guidelines of the jail. Inmate workers are housed in an open dorm setting, which means that they have bunk beds, but no cell doors.
Guidelines and requirements to become an inmate worker:
General population (green jumpsuit)
Restricted custody (orange jumpsuit)
Maximum security (black and white jumpsuit)
Protective custody inmates can be of any classification that request to be placed on protective custody due to their charges, or their fear of injury. Inmates that are placed on protective custody are locked down for 23 hours a day, and are only allowed out of their cell after lockdown hours. These inmates are not authorized to be around other inmates due to this classification. All of their activities are closely monitored, and they are escorted any time they are outside their cell. Inmates do have the opportunity to be removed from this classification at any time. They simply have to write a request to the Captain explaining to him why he/she wants to be returned to their perspective classification. Once the captain approves for them to be removed from protective custody, the inmate is required to sign a waiver stating that they are being removed from protective custody status at their request.
Administrative segregation inmates are inmates that are a danger to themselves, other inmates, jail staff, and to the facility. In order to be placed on administrative segregation, the jail commander reviews the reason why an officer is requesting this classification. The Jail Commander and/or the Sheriff have the final authority for this classification to be assigned to an inmate. This classification is also reserved for any inmate that assaults staff resulting in bodily injury, or makes threats to do physical harm to staff.

Money can be deposited on any inmate's phone account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the CPC kiosk machine located in the lobby. Like the Access Corrections kiosk for the inmate accounts, this kiosk also take the public through the process step by step and also gives the public a receipt of the transaction.

The inmate phone system is through a company called Combined Public Communications (CPC). The inmates have access to make phone calls between the times of 7:00am and 11:00pm. The phones are turned off between 11:00pm and 7:00am for lockdown/quite time. The calls will be collect unless the inmates have money on their phone/pin debit account (See leaving money for inmates above). If the inmates have money on their pin debit account they are able to make as many calls as they have the funds for, this includes calls to cell phones.
Upon admission to the Wayne County Jail the inmate is given a pin number for the phone system. If the inmate gives his or her pin number to another inmate the other inmate will then have access to their pin debit account and can use this at will. This is NOT recommended. If an inmate gives his or her pin number to another inmate, the Wayne County Jail is not responsible for any funds that are used by the other inmate.
Any problems or repairs that need to be taken care of with the phone system are directed to CPC. Any issues involving call blocks or refunding of money is done through CPC. The phone number for CPC is 1-877-570-4268
Inmates do have the opportunity to order commissary (food, hygiene, paper, pencils, etc.) from the jail's commissary network. The commissary vendor we use is Keefe. After an order is placed by the inmate and sent to Keefe, it takes several days for the order to process, get packed at Keefe, and then delivered to the jail. Listed below are the procedures for ordering and receiving commissary:
The inmate accesses the commissary network via the inmate phones located in the housing units and the receiving area. The inmate dials a specific number. At this time the inmate is prompted to order items that are available and authorized to be given to the inmates at the Wayne County Jail. As long as the inmate has the funds on his or her inmate account, the inmate is able to order these items. If the inmate orders more commissary items than they have funds available for, the system rejects the last ordered items until the correct available amount is met.
After the order has been placed by the inmate, the commissary officers then send the orders via the internet once a week (Sundays) to the Keefe network. It then takes approximately 3-5 days for the prepackaged order to arrive at the Wayne County Detention Center.
The inmates receive their commissary order once a week (All of A-pod inmates on Fridays and all of B-pod inmates on Saturdays). The commissary officers then review the orders that are on the packing slip, ensure that all items are present in the order and then pass the commissary order to the inmates individually. All inmates are required to check their orders when the order is given to them and let the commissary officer know if they have any missing or damaged articles in the order. The inmate is required to sign the packing slip for his or her order. Once the inmate has signed the packing slip for the order and walked away from the commissary officer, the transaction is completed. The inmate cannot come back to the officer later and say that they have missing or damaged articles. They will not be refunded at that point.
If the inmate is being released to the Indiana Department of Corrections they will not be allowed by IDOC to take any commissary items with them. If the inmate is being released from the Wayne County Jail and has commissary items, the inmate is allowed to take these items with them. If the inmate has not received the most recent commissary order, the inmate will be refunded the full amount of the commissary order that was placed. The inmate will receive the refund in the form of a check from the Wayne County Jail.
The inmates are not permitted to gamble or trade commissary items for anything of value with the other inmates or staff members. If this occurs the inmate will have privileges taken from then.
Authorized commissary items are subject to change at any time with the approval of the Sheriff and/or the Jail Commander.
