Inside these vast, specialized structures, containing thousands of inmates, highly trained corrections officers use technology to anticipate outbreaks of violence and to prevent riots and escape attempts. The tightly regulated prison system relies on many professionals. Counselors, drug rehabilitation staff, medical personnel, and kitchen workers are among the committed prison employees who daily face some of the worlds most hardened criminals. In addition to incarceration and rehabilitation, Americas prisons also serve as crime-prevention centers teaching offenders new trades and offering them the chance to learn life skills.
