Correctional facility is a term used by Process Servers in Kentucky that refers to a jail, prison, or other place of incarceration by government officials. They serve to confine and rehabilitate inmates in Kentucky as they do in all other states.

Do Process Servers say there is a difference between a correctional facility and a prison in Kentucky?

Actually, in Kentucky, correctional facilities and prisons are basically the same. Correctional facilities usually include prisons and jails while prisons are considered a subpart of the correctional system. Whether an inmate is incarcerated in a Kentucky corrections institution or a prison, they are subject to service of process, continuing their involvement within the justice court system. It must be noted, Private Process Servers in Kentucky who are tasked to serve process upon an inmate are delivering legal documents concerning civil matters only.

Correctional Institutions and Prisons in Kentucky are similar to most facilities in all states throughout the United States. State Prisons and Facilities in Kentucky are part of a larger criminal justice system which includes police, prosecution and the courts.

Inmates / defendants / respondents incarcerated in a Kentucky correction facilities are subject to the practices of the institution's rules and regulations. Process Servers who are tasked with the job of serving inmates in a Kentucky facility with service of process can only perform their duties and services with the guidance and approval of the facility managers and in many situations, the approval of the warden.

Estimates and data reveal that there are more than 1,400,000 inmates within the entire United States state prison system

State prisons in Kentucky are generally classified as minimum, medium and high security. There are approximately 1700 state prisons in the United States. Inmates in a correction facility in Kentucky regardless of classification are subject to private Process Servers performing service of process and are no different than any other person incarcerated in Kentucky.

Federal correctional Institutions located in Kentucky are the homes for inmates who have been convicted of a wide range of charges. Estimates and records indicate all federal prisons house over 220,000 inmates.

Many people familiar with the federal corrections system in Kentucky refer to federal prisons as a penitentiary.

The number of sentenced inmates entering federal prisons facilities in Kentucky each day is far less than the number of people who are delivered to its jails.
