person: bed and locker. The reduced allocation will be used to determine mobilization prisoner
capacities for the facility. MACOM commanders may approve operations under the reduced space
(2) Emergency Minimum Allocation. Under conditions of temporary peak confinement
facility population periods, not to exceed 7 consecutive days, an emergency minimum allocation of
17 square feet of unencumbered space per prisoner is authorized, excluding the segregation area.
As in the reduced allocation, in determining unencumbered space, all fixtures must be in operational
position and must consider the following minimum furnishing per person: bed and locker. Only
DAPM may approve emergency minimum space operations for any period beyond 30 consecutive
e. Individual cells. Space allotment for individual cells or rooms constructed prior to 1 January
1995 will be at least 8 feet long, by 6 feet wide, by 8 feet high (minimum inside measurements).
38. Commanders will ensure that policy and procedures specify the means for the immediate
release of inmates from locked areas in case of emergency and provide for a backup system.
Standards for locking devices will meet established safety and security requirements as described in
appropriate Army engineer guide specifications. In combustible buildings, manually operated
locking devices permitting the opening and closing of all cells simultaneously will be installed on
each line of three or more cells. Noncombustible buildings with power operated locks will have a
manual backup system to provide a means for the immediate release of inmates in case of
emergency. This requirement includes exit or corridor doors throughout the facility. Lightweight
locks in the builders' hardware class are not authorized for use in securing prisoners. The security
and management of keys and locks will conform to the policy and procedures outlined in AR 190
51, appendix D.
39. Prisoner quarters, latrines, dining facilities, laundry rooms, processing areas, chapel, training
classrooms, and exercise yard will normally be located within the facility-fenced yard.
40. Administrative offices and supply, arms, tools, visitors, and guard rooms should be located
outside the facility-fenced area. The following standards apply to these offices and rooms:
a. The arms room will be protected IAW appropriate regulations. Under no conditions will the
arms room be located within the facility-fenced area.
b. Facilities will be provided for the safeguarding of tools and equipment. In facilities of
permanent type construction where the arms, tool, and supply rooms are in the secured area,
inaccessibility is to be achieved by using security doors to isolate prisoners from these rooms.
c. A visitation room will be provided and will not be divided by any type of barrier to keep
visitors separated from general population prisoners being visited. High-risk prisoners may be
required to visit in a secured area utilizing an intercom system and transparent barrier to keep
prisoners and visitors separated. A locked storage area will be provided for securing visitors' hand-
carried items during visits.
41. Double exterior fencing will be installed around all facility recreation, exercise, and work yard
areas. Fencing will be constructed of a type indicated in appropriate engineering guide
