  1. Most of the inmates in a prison are part of its general population. These are the average inmates who either don't have special needs (like protective custody) or don't pose a special threat. Their daily lives are highly regimented and their every move is watched by prison guards. Most of the general population work inside the prison, doing much of its menial labor, like laundry, janitorial work or kitchen work. The inmates are also given time to be outside in the prison yard, where they can exercise and socialize.
