    1859(b) When an inmate in general population has committed acts that threaten the safety of others, threaten the security of the institution, or demonstrate an inability to live in the general population without abusing the rights and privileges of others, the inmate shall be placed in administrative confinement pending close management review. When an inmate in any other confinement status has committed acts that threaten the safety of others, threaten the security of the institution, or demonstrated an inability to live in a segregated population without abusing the rights and privileges of others the inmate shall be housed in his or her current status pending close management review. Inmates being considered for close management who have completed disciplinary confinement and the final decision regarding close management placement has not been determined will be housed in administrative confinement until the review and decision is made by the SCO.

    2006(c) The classification officer shall complete section I of the Report of Close Management, Form DC6-233C. Form DC6-233C is hereby incorporated by reference. 2029Copies of this form are available from the Forms Control Administrator, 501 S. Calhoun St., Tallahassee, FL 32399. The effective date of the form is 4-8-04. 2055Upon completion of section I, the classification officer shall forward Form DC6-233C to the classification supervisor. The classification officer shall ensure that the inmate receives a copy of the Report of Close Management, Form DC6-233C, to prepare for the close management review. The inmate will be given a minimum of 48 hours to prepare for the review unless waived by completing a Close Management Waiver, Form DC6-265. Form DC6-265 is hereby incorporated by reference. 2129Copies of this form are available from the Forms Control Administrator, 501 S. Calhoun St., Tallahassee, FL 32399, 2147http://www.flrules.org/Gateway/reference.asp?No=Ref-019712149.

    2316(g) ICT Hearing. The ICT shall evaluate the recommendations for close management placement and the mental health assessment, interview the inmate, and consider the information provided by the inmate. The ICT shall ensure that the inmate was given a minimum of 48 hours to prepare for the review unless waived by completing a Close Management Waiver, Form DC6-265. The team shall document on Form DC6-233C that the inmate was allowed at least 48 hours to prepare for the review. The ICT shall inquire whether or not the inmate is in need of staff assistance. A staff assistant shall be assigned to assist an inmate when the team determines that the inmate is illiterate or does not understand English, has a disability that would hinder the inmate’s ability to represent him or herself, or when the complexity of the issue makes it unlikely that the inmate will be able to properly represent him or herself. This assistance can also be provided at the inmate’s request. In such event, it is the responsibility of the staff member to explain the close management recommendation and procedures to the inmate. Even though the staff member will be authorized to assist an inmate during the hearing and aid the inmate in presenting his or her position, the staff member shall not take the position of an advocate or defense attorney for the inmate. The ICT is authorized to postpone the case review to allow an inmate additional time to prepare. If an extension of time is given, the team shall document the postponement on Form DC6-233C. The inmate will appear at the hearing unless he or she demonstrates disruptive behavior, either before or during the hearing, that impedes the process or the inmate waives his or her right to be present at the close management hearing. If the inmate waives his or right to be present at the close management hearing, the Close Management Waiver, Form DC6-265, shall be completed. In such cases, the review will be completed without the inmate. The absence, removal, or presence of the inmate will be documented on Form DC6-233C. After the interview and review of all pertinent information including the mental health assessment, the ICT will make a recommendation to the SCO. This recommendation will be documented on Form DC6-233C. The ICT will inform the inmate of the basis for its decision and provide a copy of the team’s decision to the inmate after the conclusion of the hearing. The ICT classification member will ensure that the team results are entered in OBIS.

    2740(h) The SCO will review the recommendations of the ICT, the Close Management Referral Assessment, Form DC6-128, and other pertinent information before making the final decision regarding close management placement. This review will be on site and the SCO may interview the inmate, except in situations requiring more immediate action. In these cases, the SCO will review the documentation in OBIS. The SCO will approve, disapprove, or modify the ICT’s recommendation or obtain further information from the team before reaching a final decision. If the team’s recommendation is disapproved or modified by the SCO, the inmate will be informed of the decision in writing by the SCO. Inmate notification will not be required when the SCO has approved the ICT’s recommendation. After the review is complete, the SCO will document its decision in OBIS. A copy of Form DC6-233C will be kept in the inmate record file.

    2887(4) Transfers From a Non-CM Institution.

    2893(a) Once a CM recommendation is made, the ICT will also enter a transfer recommendation in OBIS.

    2910(b) The inmate will remain in administrative or current confinement status pending review and final decision of the SCO.

    2986(d) If the CM recommendation is disapproved, the SCO will determine if a transfer for other management reasons should be approved. The SCO will document its decision in OBIS. If a transfer is approved, the SCO will notify Population Management for future transfer of the inmate to an appropriate non-CM facility.

    3037(5) Transfers While Inmate is in CM Status.

    3045(a) If an inmate in close management is reassigned to another level of close management which requires transfer to another institution, the time spent awaiting transfer will be taken into consideration when setting the schedule of reviews by the ICT at the receiving institution.

    3089(b) To transfer an inmate in close management status to another close management facility, the following will occur:

    31071. The ICT from the sending institution will recommend the appropriate level of close management based upon the criteria and facts for placement prior to the transfer.

    31342. Transfers will be limited to those inmates in close management:

    3145a. Who are being recommended for a close management level that the sending institution is not capable of providing, based on institutional mission or close management stratification issues, or

    3174b. Situations that involve special reviews. Inmates with protection or threat reviews involving inmates housed at the same CM facility will be handled within the CM unit and, unless exceptional circumstances exist, will not be transferred from one CM institution to another based solely on these reviews, or

    3222c. Situations that require an inmate to be moved to a higher level facility.

    3236(c) The recommendation by the ICT to transfer a close management inmate will be decided by the SCO. If approved, the SCO will submit notification to Population Management for transfer of the inmate. The receiving institution shall then place the inmate directly into the approved close management status without completing an additional evaluation.

    3289(d) If the transfer recommendation is disapproved, the SCO will provide written notification to the ICT of the requesting institution of its decision not to transfer.

    3429(c) Prior to placing inmates in the same cell, the inmate will be interviewed by the housing supervisor and a review will be initiated to determine if any of the inmates in the close management unit are a threat to the inmate being placed, or if the inmate being placed is a threat to other inmates in the unit.

    3488(d) If the inmate cannot be placed for these reasons, the housing supervisor will place or maintain the inmate in administrative confinement until the issue can be expeditiously resolved. The case will be immediately forwarded to the ICT for review. The ICT will review the case, interview the inmate, and forward recommendations to the SCO. The SCO will review the case and may interview the inmate and make a final decision on the inmate’s placement.

    3563(e) Water Supply to CM Units. All close management cells will be equipped with toilet facilities and running water for drinking and other sanitary purposes. Water in the cell can be turned off when necessary due to misbehavior.

It also includes the intentional misuse of the water for such purposes as throwing it on staff or other inmates, or mixing it with another substance for an unauthorized purpose (inmate mixes water with soap or shampoo and applies to the floor or himself or herself to hinder cell extraction). In such event, the inmate will be furnished with an adequate supply of drinking water by other means to prevent dehydration. This action can be taken in addition to formal disciplinary action being taken against the inmate pursuant to established procedures regarding disciplinary action.

If the inmate chooses not to wear the garment, the garment shall be left in the cell and this action shall be documented on Form DC6-229, Daily Record of Special Housing. Under no circumstances shall an inmate be left without a means to cover him or herself.

    4842(b) Bedding and linen – Bedding and linen for inmates in close management shall be issued and exchanged the same as is provided to the general inmate population. Any exceptions shall be based on potential harm to individuals or a threat to the security of the institution.

Such exercise periods shall be documented on Form DC6-229. The ICT is authorized to restrict exercise for an individual inmate only when the inmate is found guilty of a major rule violation as defined in this rule, or if the inmate has pending a disciplinary hearing for a major rule violation as defined in this rule. Inmates shall be notified in writing of this decision and may appeal through the grievance procedure. The denial of exercise shall be for no more than 15 days per incident and for no longer than 30 days in cumulative length. Medical restrictions determined by health services staff can also place limitations on the amount and type of exercise permitted. Such restrictions of exercise periods will be documented on the Daily Record of Special Housing, Form DC6-229. A disabled inmate who is unable to participate in the normal exercise program will have an exercise program developed for him that will accomplish the need for exercise and take into account the particular inmate’s limitations.
