Next Episode of Behind Bars: Rookie Year is
Behind Bars: Rookie Year follows a group of new recruits at the New Mexico Corrections Academy (NMCA) who are training or have recently joined the ranks at the Penitentiary of New Mexico (PNM). 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. Whether they're cadets in training or brand new on the line, the officers all wrestle with a critical life-or-death question: Is it worth it?
Lilly works control in a locked-down prison-gang pod; Chaz prepares for an extraction; Javier excels in the training academy; a major mistake threatens Fabian's job; Ariel fails to show up for work.
An inmate swallows unidentified contraband; gang members brawl in Chaz's unit; Javier works yard duty for his first assignment; a stressed-out Ariel calls it quits, while D'Angelo seeks more action.
The administration steps up efforts to take down the SNM gang; Purto learns that his life may be in jeopardy; a leader of the SNM gang shares his story; Mangin and Cordova hit their one-year anniversary as COs; Chaz comes into his own as an officer.
