The premature or tardy release of prisoners from confinement results in poor prisoner morale and
reflects unfavorably upon the administration of confinement by the Department of the Army
(DA). Further, it is imperative that the essential legal rights of the individual be protected by
ensuring that he is not held beyond the proper release date. Accordingly, commanding officers
of confinement facilities will exercise close and continuing command supervision over the
computation of sentence expiration dates.
