Americas Union Charter
Article 178 - Prison Code
By this Charter a single, unified and consistent Prison Code shall be formed for the Union and all associated Universities. The Prison Code shall provide structure, guidelines and direction concerning the structure, operation and good governance of prisons and prisoners.
The Prison Code shall be one (1) book structured into chapters, which in turn are divided into articles and then one or more clauses within each article.
The major chapters of the Prison Code shall be:
I. Introductory Provisions
II. Prison Standards and Principles
III. Correctional Facilities
IV. Prisoner Classification System
V. Correctional Facility Administration
VI. Correctional Facility Procedures
VII. Universal Forms
VIII. Universal Corrections Forms
While an article may belong to a particular chapter, the numbering of all articles is consecutive so that the entire body of articles of the Prison Code may be read as one, with or without the chapter headings.
