Feb 09, 2013 Season 4 Episode 14 watch on (Paid)

For the officers that handle the inmates on a daily basis at Last Vegas's Clark County Detention Center it can be hard to tell who is lying and who is telling the truth.

But when officers find something suspicious in her cell, she is stripped of her transportation job within the jail.

Stress Box

Oct 30, 2012 Season 4 Episode 12

Las Vegas can be full of vices - both legal and illegal. Break the law and you're hauled into the Clark County Detention Center. But getting booked here punishes more than arrestees - family and friends on the outside often share the heartache of the jail sentence. Loved ones must navigate an intimidating world where details of what's happening behind bars are hard to find and visitation lasts only 30 minutes a day. It's this stress that can drive some families closer...and others apart.

Misfits and Outcasts

Oct 23, 2012 Season 4 Episode 11

With new inmates constantly pouring in, one of the hardest jobs for officers is organizing, classifying, and keeping the inmates safe. Once inside, inmates divide themselves by things like race and gang affiliation, and a tense community of groups and cliques can be created. In this dangerous world, one of the most difficult ways to do time is to not fit in. In this episode, we spend time with three inmates who for one reason or another simply don't fit in, and who each must make difficult decisions and take different paths in order to survive their time in jail.
