A prison warden also enforces the rules while overseeing inmates. Each correctional facility has its own set of policies and code of conduct. It’s the responsibility of the prison warden to understand these rules and make sure that each prisoner follows them at all times. Enforcing the rules and regulations also means keeping order within the correctional facility. This could include preventing issues from arising, administering disciplinary actions or resolving disputes. Prison wardens keep order and enforce the rules using punishments and communication.
