background into a classification summary that is a concise, factual history and evaluation of the
12. Institutional Classification Program. This program, developed by the classification review
boards, will be chaired by an E8/GS12 or above with two enlisted members (staff sergeant or
above). A civilian employee in the grade of GS7 may be substituted for one of the
noncommissioned officer members.
13. Classification boards will review and make recommendations in the following areas:
a. Review of custody level and security grade assignments.
b. Domicile accommodations.
c. Prisoner training needs.
d. Prisoner work assignments.
e. Treatment reviews.
14. Restoration, Clemency, and Parole Program. Prisoners within the ACS will be considered for
clemency per AR 15130. NonArmy prisoners will be considered for clemency per their parent
service regulations. Clemency actions include the mitigation, remission, and suspension of courts-
martial sentences and return to military service (restoration/reenlistment) of prisoners with approved
sentences. All US Army prisoners will be evaluated for return to military service. Neither clemency
nor parole is a right. The programs set forth in this chapter and in AR 15130 are primarily for the
benefit of the Army, not for any individual prisoner. All prisoners will be clearly informed that
there is no right to either clemency or parole.
15. A prisoner on parole will remain under the legal supervision and control of the releasing facility
and a local United States probation officer assigned by the Probation Division of the US Courts,
until the expiration of the full term or aggregate terms of the sentence without credit for abatement.
16. Prisoners from an ACS facility who have approved parole will remain under the releasing
facility's control at the time of release on parole, unless otherwise directed. Hard copy records will
be transferred by US mail or the most expeditious means. The facility commander or designee will
electronically notify the USDB staff in advance, no later than the day prior to the date of release on
parole. Such notification will include, at a minimum, the inmate's name, parole address and contact
number, probation officer, confining offenses and sentence, victim/witness information, and
projected parole expiration date.
17. Prerelease Program. A prerelease training program designed to prepare prisoners for return to
military duty or the civilian community will be established at each ACS facility. Facility programs
will be designed to prepare the prisoner for reintroduction to his family, friends, and community and
to help the prisoner to anticipate and cope with problems upon his reintroduction. Emphasis will be
placed on development and self-understanding, toleration of frustrations and disappointments, and
the importance of initial motivation toward the new environment. Practical training, such as
checkbook maintenance, resume preparation, and military benefits, will be included. Provisions
