Inmates are assigned tasks to contribute to the facility's functioning. Privacy is minimal, with communal facilities and strict regulations governing personal space and possessions. Visitation privileges are granted to inmates in good standing, but contact is limited, and all communications, aside from legal calls, are monitored closely.
