References used among inmates incarcerated within institutions of the Canadian Prairie region and possibly other institutions nationally or internationally.

Check-in: An inmate who is unstable and acts in such a way that Corrections Officers are left with no option but to upgrade the inmate's security level and have him or her removed from a low security setting.

Check-off: An inmate who is forced to move units by other inmates. This scenario is often initiated by gang members in an attempt to create available bed-space with the hope that free beds will be given to "bro's" or, in the case of a woman's institution, "bitches."

Check-in: "Fuck, bro, look at this crazy check-in. What a bitch. The goof (see definition) didn't last a minute before freaking."

Check-off: "You'd better check-off, bitch. The bro's need a bed and if you don't check-off you're gonna get done-up (likely stabbed with an improvised weapon , or shank (see definition), or severely beaten. )

The act of forcibly stopping the finger check by grabbing the perpetrators middle finger and bending it awkwardly and painfully backward. When performed successfully, it not only prevents the completion of the finger check, but also permanently dissuades any thoughts the perpetrator might have to attempt such a maneuver at a later date.
As Byron's hand slipped into Laura's pants, Laura quickly grabbed his middle finger and bent it backward until Byron cried out in pain. "What was that?", asked Byron. "My finger check check", replied Laura.
