In the US Army, as in other agencies of the government, we are required to maintain and report
certain financial and personnel data. A confinement facility is no exception to the rule and must
acquire and maintain personnel data in the form of strength and accountability. Although the
bulk of strength and accountability forms and records are prepared by the prisoner administrative
services branch, all correctional personnel are responsible for contributing information so that
accurate records can be maintained by the prisoner's administrative services branch. Once the
prisoner strength and accountability figures are compiled in an orderly manner, the confinement
facility commander and his staff are able to efficiently administer the facility in the interests of
military justice. Therefore, your accurate reporting of strength and accountability contributes to
the overall efficiency of the confinement facility in which you serve.
PART - A - Prepare correctional reports and forms.
1. Preparation of Forms and Records. Forms and records prescribed for administration and
operation of a confinement facility must be prepared and maintained with accuracy,
thoroughness, and attention to detail. There are two means available to maintain prisoner
strength accountability. The first is the Army Corrections Information System (ACIS) and the
latter is the Department of Defense (DD) Form 506 (Daily Record of Prisoners).
