One set of rules shall apply to the conduct of prisoners, and one set of regulations shall define the duties of the deputy warden and other employees. These rules and regulations shall be as comprehensive as possible. Before such rules and regulations however, shall become effective, the same shall be approved by the Levy Court of Kent County.
