Preview

This chapter presents excerpts of King County's (Washington) General Policy Manual on gender identity regulations. The manual spells out the policy and protocols for dealing with transgender inmates. In particular, it explains how to provide the appropriate treatment of transgender, transsexual, intersex, and gender variant persons who are incarcerated and housed within King County's Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention. The guidelines ensure not only that transgender, transsexual, intersex, and gender variant inmates are treated with dignity, but that staff have the information and support they need to be more effective.
