The general assembly hereby declares that if any inmate does not demonstrate positive behavior during incarceration, such inmate should be required to serve out the full sentence imposed upon such inmate. If any inmate does demonstrate positive behavior during incarceration, such inmate should be considered for release from incarceration prior to the end of the full sentence imposed upon him. Therefore, the general assembly, in enacting this part 4, intends to provide standards whereby any inmate can earn a reduction of incarceration time and to provide incentives for inmates to demonstrate positive behavior during incarceration.
