Figure 1-7. Example of DD Form 510
g. Explain Rules and Regulations.
(1) Prisoners will be issued a copy of the facility rules and regulations when in-processing. Each
prisoner will sign receipt for his copy. The rules and regulations will be completely explained to the prisoners.
This will be done point-by-point, by lecture and discussion, supplying sufficient information to give prisoners
an understanding of what is expected of them.
(2) Prisoners will be advised of established facility uniform and individual equipment policies. They will
be oriented on correspondence, publications, communication, and visiting rules.
h. Explain Prisoner Rights.
All prisoners will be carefully oriented as to their status, rights, and privileges. They will be afforded
rights and privileges of Soldiers or officers on normal duty status, except those necessarily denied by reason of
confinement. Prisoners will be required to participate in those phases of the correctional treatment program
determined to be necessary to assure their safe control, custody, work and training assignments, health, and
welfare. Officer prisoners and noncommissioned officers in a detained prisoner status cannot exercise
command or supervisory authority over other persons while confined. They will be required to comply with
the rules and regulations of the confinement facility to the same extent as other prisoners.
i. Inmate Background Summary.
Ensure a DD Form 2710 (Inmate Background Summary) is prepared. The needed information is
obtained from the prisoner. DD Form 2710 may be used in lieu of the Army Corrections Information System
