Riots, Fights, Escape Attempts and Contraband are considered misconducts. If one of these things happen, it is best to go into Lockdown.

If a Prisoner commits any of these misconducts, they will usually be sentenced to either Solitary or Lockdown for a select amount of time.

If Prison Policy has been researched, you can change the type of punishment (solitary, lockdown or none at all), the time spent in punishment, and even set if doing particular misconduct will activate a cell or person search.The best way to stop and prevent this is make sure you have enough guards and your prisoners are happy.
