The KDOC’s graduated incentive level system requires that inmates earn privileges in areas which include personal property, visitation, canteen expenditures and eligibility for incentive pay.
Inmates progress through the four-level system by complying with KDOC rules and regulations, participating in programs and practicing pro-social behavior. Once earned, privileges may be lost for non-compliance as an inmate’s behavior determines which incentive levels he/she can earn while incarcerated. Level three is the highest incentive level possible. All inmates enter the Reception and Diagnostic Unit at Intake Level.
