Answers: Modern prison designs, above all those of high-security prisons, have sought to increasingly restrict and control the movement of prisoners throughout the facility while minimizing the corrections staffing needed to monitor and control the population. As compared to the traditional landing-cellblock-hall designs, abundant newer prisons are designed in a decentralized "podular" layout beside individual self-contained housing units, specified as "pods" or "modules", arranged around centralized outdoor yards contained by a "campus". The pods contain tiers of cells laid out surrounded by an open stencil arranged around a central control station from which a single corrections officer can monitor adjectives of the cells and the entire pod. Control of cell doors, communications and CCTV monitoring is conducted from the control station as all right. Movement out of the pod to the exercise yard or work assignments can be restricted to individual pods at designated times, if not prisoners may be kept almost always in their pod or even their individual cells depending upon the rank of security. Goods and services, such as meal, laundry, commisary, educational materials, religious services and medical effort can increasingly be brought to individual pods or cells as very well.
