JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Alterations to jails, prisons, and other detention and correctional facilities shall comply with 202.3 except that cells complying with 807.2 and 807.3 shall be provided for a minimum of 3%, but no fewer than one, of the total number of cells being altered until at least 3%, but no fewer than one, of the total number of cells comply with 807.2 and 807.3. Altered cells shall be provided in each classification level. However, when alterations are made to specific cells, detention and correctional facility operators may satisfy their obligation to provide the required number of cells by providing the required features in substitute cells (cells other than those where alterations are originally planned), provided that each substitute cell:
- Is located within the same prison site;
- Is integrated with other cells to the maximum extent feasible;
- Has, at a minimum, equal physical access as the altered cells to areas used by inmates or detainees for visitation, dining, recreation, educational programs, medical services, work programs, religious services, and participation in other programs that the facility offers to inmates or detainees; and,
- If it is technically infeasible to locate a substitute cell within the same prison site, a substitute cell must be provided at another prison site within the corrections system.
