Prisons in the United States
Prisons in the United States are operated by the Federalgovernment,as well as by each of the state governments.Incarceration (监禁) isone of the main forms of punishment for thecommission of felonyoffenses in the United States. Less seriousoffenders, includingthose convicted of misdemeanor offenses, maybe sentenced to a shortterm in a local jail or with alternativeforms of sanctions such ascommunity corrections (e.g. halfwayhouse), probation, and/orrestitution. In the United States,prisons are operated at variouslevels of security, ranging fromminimum-security prisons thatmainly house non-violent offenders toSupermax facilities that housewell-known criminals and terroristssuch as Terry Nichols, ZacariasMoussaoui, and Richard Reid.
The national (federal) government, states, counties, andmanyindividual cities have facilities to confine people.Generally,prison refers to facilities for holding convictedfelons (i.e.,crimes where the sentence is more than one year).Individualsawaiting trial, and those convicted of misdemeanors(crimes whichcarry a sentence of less than one year), are generallyheld incounty jails. In most states, cities operate jails, usedonly forvery short-term incarceration--usually a day or so, untiltheprisoner comes before a judge for the first time. Somestatesoperate unified systems, where the state operates all thejailsand prisons.
Many of the smaller county and city jails do notclassifyprisoners (that is, there is no setion by offense type andotherfactors). While some of these small facilities operate asclosesecurity facilities, to prevent prisoner-on-prisonerviolence andincrease overall security, others may put manyprisoners into thesame cells without regard to the criminalhistories of theprisoners. Other local jails are large, and havemany differentsecurity levels. For example, one of the largestjails in theUnited States is Cook County (located in Chicago). Thisfacilityhas eleven different divisions (including one medical unit,and twofor women prisoners), each classified at a differentsecuritylevel, ranging from dormitory style open housing tosuper-securelock-down.
Prisoners reside in different facilities that vary bysecuritylevel, especially in security measures, administration ofinmates,and weapons and tactics used by corrections officers. Boththefederal government and the state Prisons in the United Statesuse anumbered scale from one to six to represent the securitylevel.Level six is the most secure, while level one is theleast.
Supermax prison facilities provide the highest level ofprisonsecurity. These prisons house the most dangerous of inmates.Theseinclude serial killers, inmates who have committed murders inlesssecure prisons, and high-profile criminals such asTheodoreKaczynski, Terry Nichols, Zacarias Moussaoui and (formerly)TimothyMcVeigh.
All have individual cells with sliding doors controlled fromasecure remote control station. Often prisoners are confinedintheir cells 23 hours a day, but in some institutions, prisonersareallowed out of their cells for most of the day. When out oftheircells, prisoners remain in the cellblock or an exteriorcage.Movement is tightly restricted using restraints and escortsbycorrectional officers.
Prisons have individual cells operated from a remotecontrolstation. Each cell has its own toilet and sink. Inmates mayleaveof their cells for work assignments or correctional programs.Thefences are generally double fences with watchtowers, housingarmedguards.

文化面面观 Prisons in the United States 美国的监狱Medium security
Prisoners that fall into the medium-security group may sleepindormitories on bunk beds with lockers to store theirpossessions.They may have communal showers, toilets and sinks.Dormitories arelocked at night with one or more correctionalofficers supervising,there is less supervision over the internalmovements of prisoners.The perimeter is generally double fenced andregularlypatrolled.
Prisoners in minimum-security facilities are considered toposelittle physical risk to the public, and are mainlynon-violentwhite collar criminals. Minimum Security prisonerslive inless-secure dormitories, which are regularly patrolledbycorrectional officers. As in medium security facilities, theyhavecommunal showers, toilets, and sinks. Martha Stewart wasaminimum-security inmate at Camp Cupcake in West Virginia.
A minimum-security facility generally has a single fence thatiswatched, but not patrolled by armed guards. At facilities inveryremote and rural areas, there may be no fence at all. Prisonersmayoften work on community projects, such as roadside littercleanupwith the state Department of Transportation. Many states nowallowpersons in minimum-security facilities access to theInternet.
