Types of Regimes or Degrees in Spanish Prisons
In Spain there are three types of regimes or degrees:
1. First degree or closed regime.
In this grade are prisoners who are considered dangerous for:
• The crimes they have committed.
• Try to escape.
• Misbehaving in prison.
Inmates in the first degree cannot be released on permits.
2. Second degree or ordinary regime.
In this grade are prisoners who are not considered dangerous and have the right to:
• Visits from family and friends.
• Work in prison.
• Participate in activities.
• That their permits for their preparation for life in freedom are to be studied.
3. Third degree or open regime.
In this grade are placed the prisoners who spend the day out of prison and return to sleep.
To be in this grade, you must have good behaviour.
