(3) Other Modes of Movement. Prisoners may also be moved by ship or by rail. As these two modes
of transportation are not used frequently, no material in this lesson addresses these procedures and techniques,

to AR 190-47.
Specific policies have been established to transfer prisoners. The information covered in this lesson will
provide for the uniform transfer of prisoners from one confinement facility to another. While escorting
prisoners, it is important to remain alert and aware of custody and control measures. Prisoners have a better
opportunity to attempt an escape, pass contraband, or be physically threatening during transfers. Follow proper
procedures for escorting and supervising a prisoner or group of prisoners on foot, by motor vehicle, and aircraft.
