Media representatives may visit the brig upon special request, consistent with preserving prisoners' right to privacy while maintaining order and security.  Private housing and other secure areas will not be available except by special request.  All equipment is subject to routine inspection by brig officials for contraband and for security reviews.  Photographs or video which identify prisoners are not permitted, with the exception of internal Navy products.  For more information, contact the Brig Public Affairs Officer at:  858-577-7071.


Personal interviews and telephonic communications between prisoners (pre-trial or post-trial) and media representatives are not authorized, unless a determination is made that such interview serves a legitimate public interest, or is in the best interest of the military, per Department of the Defense (DoD) and Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) policy.  For more information or to submit a request for determination contact the Navy Personnel Command Communications Office at (901) 874-3507.
