IMO we should divide prisons differently than by locale and security level. we should have 1 time offender's prisons that are rehabilitational and 2 or more offender's prison that is very minimal in amenities and cost.
that system would deter criminals from repeat offenses, i think, knowing after that first time there's no 2nd chance.
it is important to note that this is just a philosophical idea and not literal, because the first glaring issue that comes to mind is determining if certain offenses qualify as "bad" enough for the second type of facility, no matter how many offenses. i won't go into a list of those offenses, but you know... the guys locked up in masks and kept away from other inmates.
