Inmate Discipline Program/Special Housing Units: Subpart Revision and Clarification
Document Number: 2010-30525
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-12-08
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons, Prisons Bureau
In this document, the Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) amends its Inmate Discipline and Special Housing Unit (SHU) regulations. We intend this amendment to streamline and clarify these regulations, eliminating unnecessary text and obsolete language, and removing internal agency procedures that need not be in regulations text. We also make substantive changes to our list of prohibited acts for which disciplinary sanctions may be imposed, and alter the list of possible sanctions available to allow Discipline Hearing Officers more flexibility in adapting the sanction to fit the seriousness of the violation.
