Security is nowhere more important than in a correctional facility, where convicted criminals are contained away from society. It’s critical that the facility be tightly secured, to ensure that prisoners do not escape or create other risks. As such, correctional facilities have often been at the forefront of security technology and procedure, even as they have evolved and changed. Many shifts are occurring in the modern day correctional industry, such as changes in methodology as the industry becomes more privatized and increased focus on minimum and lower-security facilities. As prison populations continue to rise, it’s increasingly important to properly secure the changing correctional landscape.
