4. Next, the identity of the person to whom the order of confinement applies is verified by questioning him as
to his identity and by checking his identification card. If there is doubt that the person being confined is not the
same as stated on the confinement order, the shift supervisor will be notified. All local means will be exhausted
in identifying the person; for example, positive identification by the person's unit commander, first sergeant, or
5. When the person's identity has been established, he will be receipted for. A copy of the receipt will be given
to the individual escorting the person to be confined. If a duplicate copy is not available, a receipt will be
prepared which includes the data contained in the receipt portion of the confinement order. The original copy
will be retained at the confinement facility for the correctional officer.
6. After receipting for the person, a frisk search will be performed before the prisoner enters the reception area
for his processing.
7. Once inside the facility, search, inventory, and segregate the prisoner's clothing, equipment, and property.
NOTE: Prisoners transferred from another confinement facility will be identified, searched, and
receipted for in the manner discussed in the previous paragraphs. However, identification and receipt
should normally be accomplished through the use of the pertinent transfer order.
8. In-Processing Requirements.
Upon completion of the preliminary requirements, prisoners will be taken to the reception area and processed as
discussed in the subsequent paragraphs. Necessary modifications will be made, as appropriate, to prevent
duplicating those basic processing requirements already completed for prisoners transferred from another
confinement facility. In-processing prisoners will be segregated from other prisoners while undergoing initial
a. Search and Inventory Personal Property.
When the prisoner enters the reception area, his personal property and valuables and military clothing and
equipment will be searched for unauthorized materials. The search should be made in the prisoner's presence
and include all items on his person.
(1) Military clothing and equipment will be checked to determine serviceability. It should be inventoried
to establish that the prisoner has the required items in his possession. A list of unserviceable items and
shortages of required items will be prepared so they can be replaced and issued later. (See figure 1-1 and 1-2
for clothing allowances.)
(2) During normal duty hours, personal property and valuables will be inventoried by a member of the
Property and Fund Section and listed on DA Form 1132. If it's after duty hours, list all personal valuables and
other items the prisoner may keep in the personal property section on DA Form 4137. Ensure that the
prisoner/guard signs the DA Form 4137. (Prisoner's Personal Property List - Personal Deposit Fund; see figure
1-3.) Items of an officer's uniform will be listed because these items are purchased from the individual's funds
and therefore become the personal property of the individual. The original DA Form 1132 will be retained in
the property and fund section; one copy will be retained by the prisoner; one copy will be placed inside the
container in which the personal valuables authorized for retention are held for safekeeping; one copy will be
affixed to the outside of this container; and the remaining copy will be filed in the supply room where personal
property is stored. After normal duty hours, personal property and valuables will be inventoried by an on duty
