Troops confined in Navy-operated prisons will soon wear a standard uniform instead of a utility uniform specific to their branch. Starting May 1, prisoners will wear a Navy non-military standardized prisoner uniform, known as an “SPU.” Pretrial prisoners will wear a brown uniform and post-trial prisoners will wear a tan uniform.
