Default PTO's Prison Glossery of Abbreviations, Acronyms & Terminology inmates use

This is a continuation of the "PTO Dictionary" thread that was started back in 2008 and a revision of the one first published by Patchouli located here.

Special thanks to ex-PTO Staff member roysprincess for her work compiling the entire old version of the PTO Dictionary into an alphabetical one, as well as Keltria for compiling a list of acronyms of offenses and Patchouli for originally publishing their work.

The terms in this thread are a mix of criminal justice, prison and internet slang which is commonly used today with social media and personal texting.

If you would like to suggest a new Abbreviation / Acronym / Term, please post it in this thread along with the definition and we will look into adding it to the glossary.

Thanks!
