Inmates wait in the Roger Bauman intake facility for assessment before integrating into the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center. More than 50 years old, the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center doesn’t look ready for a new era of corrections. Some of the buildings are decrepit. Some of the jail cells have bars, instead of secured doors, a relic of construction at older prisons such as Alcatraz. Photo taken March 01, 2012 in Elk Grove, California.
