(1) the classification process, which shall include:
(i) identification of qualifying inmates, (ii) designation criteria,
(iii) referral for designation,
(iv) designation, and
(v) review procedures;
(2) a mechanism by which an inmate who is classified CMC may appeal such classification;
(3) criteria and procedures for inmate transfer and movement;
(4) temporary release, earned eligibility, and merit time evaluations.

(b) The Department shall publish the aforementioned internal procedures as Directive 0701, “Central Monitoring Cases.”

§ 1000.4 Policy

In accordance with Correction Law §112, the Commissioner reserves the right to expeditiously revise and/or amend CMC procedures as deemed necessary in the best interests of public safety, and the safe, secure, and orderly operation of all department correctional facilities.
