The adjustment of the Security Reclassification Scale for Women (SRSW) : elimination of administrative segregation.: PS83-5/R431E-PDF

"In the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), security classification occurs at admission to federal custody and throughout incarceration to ensure that offenders are placed at security levels that are appropriate to manage their risk of institutional misconduct, including violence and threat to public safety in the event of an escape. The elimination of the use of segregation with the passage of Bill C-83 will affect one particular item in the Security Reclassification Scale for Women (SRSW) pertaining to the offender having a history of segregation placements. The goal of this research study was to examine how the psychometric proprieties of the SRSW would be affected by the elimination of this item and whether the continued use of the tool is advisable"--Why we did this study.
