Appeal from NJP
NATURE  OF  THE  PUNISHMENT There are eight specific types of punishment that may, under proper circumstances,  be  imposed  as  NJP.  They  are admonition  and  reprimand,  arrest  in  quarters, restriction,  forfeiture,  extra  duty,  reduction  in grade,   correctional   custody,   and   confinement on  bread  and  water  or  diminished  rations. Remember, there are limitations that are based upon  the  CO’s  rank  and  the  status  of  the offender. Admonition  and  Reprimand Admonition  and  reprimand  are  two  forms of   censure   intended   to   express   adverse reflection  upon  or  criticism  of  a  person’s conduct.  A  reprimand  is  a  more  severe  form of   censure   than   an   admonition. When imposed  as  NJP,  the  admonition  or  reprimand is   considered   to   be   punitive,   unlike   the nonpunitive admonition   and   reprimand. Punitive   censure   for   officers   must   be   in writing,  although  it  may  be  either  oral  or written  for  enlisted  personnel.  Procedures  for issuing  punitive  letters  are  detailed  in  the JAGMAN,  section  0114.  A  sample  punitive letter  of  reprimand  is  shown  in  the  JAGMAN, appendix  A-1-g. Arrest  in  Quarters This   punishment   is   imposable   only   on officers.  It  is  a  moral  restraint,  as  opposed  to a physical restraint. It is similar to restriction, but  has  much  narrower  limits.  The  limits  of arrest   are   set   by   the   officer   imposing   the punishment  and  may  extend  beyond  quarters. The  term  quarters  includes   military   and private   residences. The   officer   may   be required  to  perform  his  or  her  regular  duties as  long  as  they  do  not  involve  the  exercise  of authority  over  subordinates. Restriction  is  the  least  severe  form  of deprivation   of   liberty.   Restriction   involves moral   rather   than   physical   restraint. The severity of this type of restraint depends on its duration  and  the  geographical  limits  specified when   the   punishment   is   imposed.   A   person undergoing   restriction   may   be   required   to report  to  a  designated  place  at  specified  times if  reasonably  necessary  to  make  sure  the punishment  is  being  properly  executed. Restriction  ashore  means  that  an  accused will  be  restricted  to  the  limits  of  the  command except,   of   course,   at   larger   shore   stations where  the  use  of  recreational  facilities  might be  further  restricted.  Restriction  and  arrest  in quarters  are  normally  imposed  by  a  written order  detailing  the  limits  thereof  and  usually requires  the  accused  to  log  in  at  certain specified   times   during   the   restraint.   Article 1103  of  U.S.   Navy   Regulations,   1990, provides  that  an  officer  placed  in  the  status  of arrest  or  restriction  will  not  be  confined  to  his or  her  room  unless  the  safety  or  the  discipline of  the  ship  requires  such  action. Forfeiture Forfeiture   means   a   permanent   loss   of entitlement  to  the  pay  forfeited.  A  forfeiture applies to basic pay and to sea or foreign duty pay,   but   not   to   incentive   pay   or   allowances for  subsistence  or  quarters.  The  amount  of forfeiture  of  pay  is  expressed  in  whole  dollar amounts,  not  in  fractions,  and  shows  the number  of  months  affected.  An  example  of  a properly  stated  forfeiture  is  to  forfeit  $50  pay per  month  for  2  months. If  the  punishment  includes  both  reduction, whether   or   not   suspended,   and   forfeiture   of pay, the forfeiture must be based on the grade the   accused   is   reduced   to.   Forfeitures   are effective   on   the   date   imposed   unless suspended  or  deferred. Where   a   previous forfeiture  is  being  executed,  that  forfeiture will  be  completed  before  any  newly  imposed forfeiture  will  be  executed. Restriction 9-13
