Lockdown [electronic resource]: Fort Dodge

National Geographic Television & Film
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In the state of Iowa, offenders aged 18 to 26 are kept separate from the hardened adult prison population. This program profiles Fort Dodge, a correctional center supposedly free of the worst criminal influences. But even in medium-security conditions, 1,100 cohabitating convicts veer toward everything from foolishness to gang violence. With the look of a high school, Fort Dodge juggles a mix of juveniles, racially aligned gangs, and lower functioning inmates-all on the same yard. Getting transferred to the state's maximum-security prison is all too easy.
