refuses to give disposal instructions for his property, the property will be disposed of as abandoned or
unclaimed property.) The property will be disposed of by the unit commander in accordance with instructions
received from the prisoner. A copy of such instructions will be attached to the list prepared at the time of initial
confinement and filed with the unit supply records. Authorized options for disposal of a prisoner's personal
property are as follows:
(a) Ship at the prisoner's expense to a person designated by the prisoner. Such property will be
assembled, carefully identified, and securely packed before shipment. Prisoners may be authorized to ship
personal property and household goods. Such shipment may be made to the member's home of record or place
entered on active duty. If the member requests shipment to a further point, all excess costs will be at the
member's expense. Copies of shipping receipts/documents will be forwarded to the prisoner upon shipment
(see the Joint Federal Travel Regulations [JFTR], paragraph U5125, U524OF, U5360, and U537OF).
(b) Property may be sold, and the money from such sales deposited to the prisoner's account.
Members of ACS facility staff will not purchase a prisoner's personal property from the prisoner, his family, or
a third party acting as an agent for the prisoner.
(c) Donated to a charitable organization.
(d) Donated to another individual, not a prisoner or a member of the facility staff.
(f) Disposed of as abandoned or unclaimed property.
(g) Prisoners transferred will be sent with only those military garments necessary for health and
comfort during travel, within a time limit designated by the facility commander.
(4) If the individual has a suspended punitive discharge, or no discharge, military clothing retained in
the unit pursuant to (a) above will be shipped to the correctional facility at government expense.
k. Federal Institutions. For prisoners transferred to federal institutions, the disciplinary barracks (from
which transferred) will furnish the federal institution a list of items of outer clothing to be returned and
acknowledge that receipt has been closed out. The prisoner will be transported in the prisoner uniform of the
institution, which will be laundered and returned to supply for reissue.
l. Reserve Components. Uniforms of National Guard or Army Reserve 6-month trainee personnel will be
returned to the National Guard unit of which the individual is a member. Or, to an Army Reserve clothing
3. Movement Procedures. While the movement of prisoners can be divided into two general categories
(movement within the facility and movement outside the facility), this lesson will discuss only the movement of
prisoners outside the facility. The movement of prisoners inside the facility is included elsewhere in the
correctional subcourse series. The procedures and techniques discussed in the following paragraphs apply to
prisoners who require the maximum degree of physical restraint during movement. They also apply, however,
to prisoners considered to require lesser degrees of physical restraint. The procedures may be modified by the
commander directing the movement. The number of guards required for each type of movement depends upon
the number of prisoners to be moved and the degree of custodial supervision required.
