capacity (prisons)

In the prison context, capacity refers to the maximum number of inmates that a prison facility is designed to hold.

The capacity of a prison is determined by a variety of factors, including the size of the facility, the number of beds and cells available, and the availability of common areas and support services. When a prison reaches capacity, it may be necessary to transfer inmates to other facilities or to take steps to reduce the number of inmates in the facility in order to maintain safe and appropriate conditions for all inmates.
