Proposed merger[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
@Retrolord, TommyBoy, Chazz88: I am arbitrarily closing this merger discussion because it has been 10 months since any updates, and it seems the merger was met with opposition. teratogen (talk) 07:00, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

I have proposed that this page be merged with List of U.S. federal prisons, because all the prisons listed on that page fall under Federal Bureau of Prisons control. --TommyBoy 05:16, 31 December 2005 (UTC)

I disagree. It will make the FBP article look ugly. --- Responses to Chazz's talk page. Signed by Chazz @ 12:37, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

I think so too. 80.178.234.65 18:09, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
I also think that these articles should remain separate. I'm going to remove the merge tags. | Klaw ¡digame! 22:25, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Should not be merged, countries other than the US have federal prisons, so shouldnt be put in with Federal Bureau of Prisons — Preceding unsigned comment added by Retrolord (talkcontribs) 01:20, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Needs more content[edit]

Would like to see more information about federal prisons... I am the main contributor to TDCJ and would like to see similar content in this article.Species2112 18:02, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Such as funding: in 2012 the federal prison system is budgeted $8.076 billion. http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/budget/fy2012/assets/justice.pdf, page 4 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.174.78.237 (talk) 07:45, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

COed prisons[edit]

"The Law: Coed Incarceration." TIME. Monday September 16, 1974. talks about coed prisons operated by the BOP. WhisperToMe (talk) 09:30, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Seal[edit]

I am removing the seal from the infobox of the article in light of its legal policies and disclaimers. While the BOP can't copyright its seal, "Department of Justice seals, logos and other official insignia may not be used or reproduced without written permission. Requests for permission to use or reproduce the official insignia of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Prisons, Federal Prison Industries, Parole Commission, Drug Enforcement Administration, United States Marshals Service and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives shall be referred to the heads of these components." There is no showing that Wikipedia obtained this permission. Racepacket (talk) 17:15, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Weaponry[edit]

What for weapons are used by the guards in the prisons?--Exodianecross (talk) 00:04, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
