Notes of Decisions

Before a prisoner can be placed in segrega­tion and isola­tion pending an investiga­tion, a supervisory official of the institu­tion must make a written finding that reasonable suspicion exists that a prisoner would constitute a threat to the security of the institu­tion if the prisoner were not placed in isola­tion and segrega­tion pending the investiga­tion, and must give notice of such finding to the prisoner. Bekins v. Cupp, 274 Or 115, 545 P2d 861 (1976)
