Authority to Confine
Any enlisted member may be ordered into pretrial or post-trial confinement by any commissioned officer. A Commanding Officer may delegate to any warrant officer, petty officer, or NCO of his or her command the authority to order enlisted members of the command, or those otherwise subject to his or her authority, into pretrial or post – trial confinement. Such delegation shall be in writing, and a signed copy of the delegation shall be provided to the Base Brig upon confinement.
An officer may be confined only by a Commanding Officer exercising command authority over that officer.

1. Each prospective prisoner shall have a confinement physical to determine fitness for confinement. The prisoner's fitness for confinement shall be indicated on the confinement order.
2. The examining officer shall pay special attention to, and accurately describe and record the presence of any lacerations, abrasions, contusions, hematomas, or other unusual marks. In addition, the psychological and emotional status of the individual will be assessed and the individual specifically questioned regarding suicide. Brig staff will not honor confinement physicals indicating, "fit for confinement, suicide risk", or words to that effect. Such cases will be referred by Brig staff to the NHCP emergency room or mental health department, where the unit must obtain a second confinement physical specifically stating the threat level the individual poses to himself, the credibility of his suicidal statements, etc., so Brig staff can more appropriately handle the individual. Vague and ambiguous comments by medical officers regarding potentially suicidal prisoners may be cause for the Brig CO to deny acceptance into confinement until a mental health screening has been completed.
Prisoners will be required to have the minimum amount of gear for acceptance to the Base Brig. The responsibility for providing clothing and health and comfort items rests with the confining authority until the prisoner has been transferred to the Long Term Prisoner program or discharged.
