Dangerous duty: Fayette Detention Center is a 'microcosm of a city'

If the Fayette County Detention Center were a municipality, it would qualify as a fifth-class city in Kentucky, based on its population of about 1,300 inmates. Corrections officers work directly with the inmates 24 hours a day, enforcing the rules, managing problems, resolving disputes and keeping the peace.
