Marginal note:Grounds for confining inmate in administrative segregation
(3) The institutional head may order that an inmate be confined in administrative segregation if the institutional head believes on reasonable grounds
(i) the inmate has acted, has attempted to act or intends to act in a manner that jeopardizes the security of the penitentiary or the safety of any person, and
(ii) the continued presence of the inmate in the general inmate population would jeopardize the security of the penitentiary or the safety of any person,
(b) that the continued presence of the inmate in the general inmate population would interfere with an investigation that could lead to a criminal charge or a charge under subsection 41(2) of a serious disciplinary offence, or
(c) that the continued presence of the inmate in the general inmate population would jeopardize the inmate’s own safety,
and the institutional head is satisfied that there is no reasonable alternative to administrative segregation.
