f. Army Detention Facilities.
(1) The Army will not operate facilities for confinement, custody, or detention of civilian personnel
apprehended for violation of local or state laws as long as civil confinement facilities, operated by the
Department of Justice, state, or local agencies are sufficient to accommodate the number of persons
(2) When it appears that available local facilities are insufficient, due to the large number of persons
apprehended or detained, and this fact can be verified by the person or agency responsible for the
facilities, temporary confinement/detention facilities may be operated with prior approval from DA,
specifically, the Chief of Staff, U.S. Army. These facilities will be operated only until custody of the
persons detained can be transferred to and assumed by civil authorities. They will not be used for the
confinement of persons charged or convicted under civil jurisdiction.
(3) Temporary confinement/detention facilities can be developed from local federal facilities provided
they are adaptable to the requirements of custody and control. Such facilities should be established, if
possible, within the affected area; this will conserve time, transportation, and escort personnel.
