(c) Prisoners will not perform labor that results in financial gain to prisoners or other individuals,
except as specifically authorized by the garrison or ACS facility commander.
(d) Prisoners will not be given work assignments that require the handling of, or access to,
or institutional keys. Prisoners will not have access to automation equipment unless approved by the ACS
facility commander and properly supervised.
(e) Prisoners will be required to perform useful work to the same extent as Soldiers available for
general troop duty.
(f) However, prisoners will not be used on work such as police details, area maintenance, janitorial
duties, or kitchen police within unit areas. Such work projects may be performed in direct support of the ACS
facility and of other installation functions, when approved by the garrison commander or equivalent.
(g) Prisoners will not be placed in any position where discharge of duties may reasonably be
expected to involve the exercise of authority over other prisoners. Skilled prisoners may be used as assistant
instructors to help other prisoners with academic work and vocational education/training.
(h) Prisoners may be employed in work assignments in exchanges, clubs, or in comparable work in
other service regulated activities on a military installation, provided such employment does not violate the
prohibited practices listed above.
b. Disposition Boards. Procedures for conducting boards are established by the facility commander. The
disposition board will consider and make recommendations to the commandant regarding clemency actions
(clemency, restoration, and return to duty) and requests for parole. At a minimum, a mental health report will
be prepared by mental health personnel for each prisoner appearing before the board who is confined for the
following offenses: murder, rape, aggravated assault, aggravated arson, sexual offenses, child abuse, or the
attempt to commit any of these offenses. These reports will require approval by a psychiatrist, clinical
psychologist, or social worker. Other prisoners appearing before these boards will require a mental health
report prepared by a member of the mental health staff at the discretion of the facility commander. Evaluations
will not be routinely prepared for prisoners serving sentences of less than 1 year. Disposition boards will be
chaired by an E8/GS10 or above with two enlisted members (staff sergeant or above). A civilian employee in
the grade of GS7 may be substituted for one of the noncommissioned officer members. When requested by
the respective service, a member of the prisoner's service will be a board member. If a member of the Navy or
Coast Guard is not available, a Marine will usually sit as a board member. A board schedule will be established
to ensure receipt of current recommendations by the disposition board and the facility commander by the Army
Clemency and Parole Board (ACPB), 1941 Jefferson Davis Highway, Room 222, Arlington, Virginia 22202,
not earlier than 30 days in advance of a prisoner's maximum eligibility date for consideration by the secretary
of the service concerned. Disposition evaluations and recommendations being submitted for annual
consideration will be forwarded 30 days in advance of annual consideration dates. Minimum eligibility dates
for consideration will be determined per references cited in DoD Instruction 1325.7, Administration of Military
Correctional Facilities and Clemency and Parole Authority. The disposition board will consider prisoners for
restoration or reenlistment, clemency, and parole. The board will make a recommendation regarding restoration
or reenlistment only if the prisoner has applied for restoration or reenlistment.
2. Vocational Training and Education. Organized vocational training and academic classes will be conducted
at ACS facilities when resources are available. Meaningful training activities are essential elements in the
correctional treatment of prisoners. Supervisory and instructional personnel will be selected on the basis of
experience in specific fields of training and their ability to impart knowledge to others. Training will be
