Prisoner

Prisoners will arrive at your prison every day, in the quantities set you have set. Each new prisoner will increase your income, give a fixed bonus and remove itself from the pool available. Prisoners of a different security rating grant different amounts of money when they arrive. Minimum Security Prisoners grant $300, Medium Security Prisoners grant $500, and Maximum Security Prisoners grant $1000 when they arrive. Each prisoner grants you a daily income of $150.

It is possible to change a prisoner's security category. This can be done by clicking on a prisoner and changing the appropriate setting in the menu that comes up.

The arrival of new prisoners can only be stopped by either closing all intake or by selecting none for the next intake. To do so, go to the reports menu, select the intake tab.

When a new wave of prisoners arrived, guards are required to move them to the Holding Cells/Cells

Security Edit

Non Player Assigned Edit

Minimum Security Edit

Minimum security prisoners generally have only very short sentences and will not be with you very long. Many of them leave your prison in a matter of days. Minimum security prisoners tend to tunnel less often and are more easily kept content than Normal or High security prisoners. They will still attempt to flee when a clear path is available, no matter how long their remaining sentence is. Minimum security prisoners will make use of contraband thrown over the walls. When Minimum security prisoners' arrive you receive a $300 grant.

Normal Security Edit

Normal security prisoners have low to medium sentences and will therefore be with you for a reasonable amount of time. Normal Security prisoners tend to tunnel less often than Maximum Security prisoners, but will become disgruntled faster than Minimum Security prisoners. Normal Security prisoners are more likely to be involved in a riot, are highly active with contraband, and will flee whenever the opportunity rises. Normal Security prisoners will make use of contraband thrown over the walls. When Normal Security prisoners' arrive you receive a $500 grant.

Maximum Security Edit

Maximum Security prisoners tend to have unreasonably long sentences that last far beyond the lifespan of a normal human being. They will however not die in your prison unless they are murdered, so they will be with you almost forever. Maximum Security prisoners become disgruntled extremely fast, start riots very fast, and are extremely prone to tunneling. They will obtain any and all contraband they can, and flee as soon as they can. Maximum security prisoners will make use of contraband thrown over the walls. When Maximum Security prisoners' arrive you receive a $1000 grant.

Death Row Edit

These prisoners have been sentenced to execution by electric chair. They wear black clothes and don't leave their cells except to attend appeal meetings and visitation. These in-mates are usually reckless as they are about to die so they do not care about their consequences. Your prison will only accept Death Row in-mates if you have designated "Death Row only" cells in your prison. When Death Row prisoners' arrive you receive a $2,500 grant.

Special Edit

Special prisoners' come into your prison wearing their normal cloths and usually have more detailed sprites. But when they go to their cell, they will get into their respectively colored uniforms.

Player Assigned Edit

Protective custody Edit

Assigned to prisoners to protect them from other prisoners. Protective Custody inmates do not normally come into your prison, so you must change them to that security level. Players assign this to prisoners with the reputations: Ex Law Enforcements', Ex Prison Guards', and Snitch'. When a Confidential Informant is suspected, it might be a good idea to assign them Protected Custody

SuperMax Edit

Assigned to prisoners too dangerous even for Maximum Security. Supermax inmates do not normally come into your prison, so you must change them to that security level. Players assign this to the worst of the worst prisoners, such as multiple murders, mass contraband dealing, and just large rule breakers.

                            danger.
        - COP KILLER        Guilty of murdering a Police Officer. Your
                            prison guards may be unable to restrain
                            themselves when subduing him.
        - FEARLESS          Not intimidated by the sight of Armed Guards,
                            and is less likely to surrender during a fight

                            feel compelled to do the same.
        - FIGHTER           This prisoner is very good at defensive combat moves.
                            He can disarm his opponent, or even steal their weapon
                            in a fight.

Reputations are visible in the "Character" tab of their rapsheet. Upon arrival to a prison, 50% of prisoners will not have a reputation visible, and must be found using a informant. Some prisoner will have a higher grade of reputation, e.g. "Extremely Strong" and "Extremely Volatile".

A very dangerous (and rather rare) prisoner would have some of the several reputations listed above, and is known as a "Legendary Prisoner".
