(N135) SUPPLEMENTAL POLICY AND AMPLIFYING GUIDANCE GOVERNING THE USE OF RESTRAINT EQUIPMENT WITHIN NAVAL BRIGS
|Publication Date:||17 July 2008|
To provide supplemental policy and amplifying guidance to naval brigs on the use of restraint equipment per references (a) through (d). As used herein, the term "brig" refers to shore and afloat confinement facilities designated by the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) as a naval place of confinement. Unless otherwise noted, the term "prisoner" refers to pretrial detainees, post-trial prisoners and servicemembers awarded confinement to bread and water under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, article 15.
This policy and guidance does not address use of restraint equipment on prisoners in medical settings external of the brig as such usage is governed by medical policy and procedures.
This supplemental policy and amplifying guidance applies throughout the naval corrections system, shore and afloat.
