Plot Synopsis

BEHIND BARS: OVERTIME is a series of enhanced episodes of BEHIND BARS: ROOKIE YEAR, including alternate new scenes and newly shot interviews with the officers. The original one-hour reality series follows novice correctional officers (COs) as they begin their careers inside the walls of the Penitentiary of New Mexico, which is one of the most dangerous prisons in America with 850 inmates, roughly 75% of whom are incarcerated for violent offenses. Corrections departments have one of the highest drop-out rates in the country, with nearly half of all rookies falling out before their one-year anniversary. The long hours, close proximity to unpredictable criminals, mind games and constant threat of bodily harm make it an intensely stressful career. These rookies come face-to-face with rapists, murderers, and gang members who take pleasure in preying on weakness. Every new recruit hoping to join the department goes through a rigorous training program designed to test their fortitude and give them the tools needed to survive one of the most dangerous working environments on the planet. But as each day passes, the physical and emotional demands often prove too much for some, and even the best training can't prepare a rookie for the unexpected.
