Title: Inmate Handbook: RID (Regimented Inmate Discipline), William S. Key Correctional Center

  Annotation: The William S. Key Correctional Center, under the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, has implemented the Regimented Inmate Discipline (RID) Program, and this handbook describes procedures that inmates must follow while participating in RID.
Abstract: The RID Program designates inmate housing units as platoons, and orientation for newly arrived inmate participants requires 2 weeks. Inmates who fail to report to their assignments are subject to disciplinary proceedings. When inmates come within 10 feet of correctional staff, they must come to attention and address the staff member correctly. Inmate housing units must be kept neat and clean at all times, ready for inspection. In addition, inmates must dress according to strict regulations; for example, they cannot wear any type of head gear inside buildings. The RID Program also stipulates requirements for dining facilities, health services, telephone use, visiting, mail, personal property, and tobacco use. RID participants are assigned to programs that focus on such areas as daily living skills, drug and alcohol abuse, vocational training, religious services, stress management, reintegration, recreation, and physical training. Disciplinary procedures used when inmates fail to meet RID requirements are described, as well as appeal procedures, acts that constitute disruptive institutional behavior, and the range of allowable sanctions.
