How to manage Riots in Prison Architect 2

In Prison Architect 2, one of the biggest challenges is riots. Nevertheless, they can be effectively prevented and controlled with just right approaches. Here is a detailed guide for managing riots from prevention to recovery.

Moreover, “Bangup” task force that makes compliant prisoners re-enter their cells shall reduce the number of active participants in riots.

Recovery after the uprising

Looking at reports helps understand what was wrong and changes made to schedules, programs or security measures as necessitated by these findings may prevent future outbreaks from happening. Also, rebuilding must take place so as to repair any property damages that were caused during the unrest period while medics have got prompt access to treat injured inmates and warders immediately after that uprising happened.
