Depends... how do you treat your prisoners? Do I have to commit a crime first?

Repaint Bachman and Aristo porters/Conductors in stripes or whatever your era wears. Nice fine chain around the ankles. Or you could even paint the uniforms Pink like Sherrif Joe Apao makes his prisoners wear

It's the underwear that Sherrif dyes pink. There fore you should not see the pink undewear on your figure.

There was a guy on here fromPhoenix I think his name was Rodney. He had a Jail on his layout event with a chain link fence with barbed wire.

Like Rod noted, I have seen other modelers use regular manual laborers, such as track workers, and turn them into prisoners by painting their clothing to resemble prison uniforms. Color(s) would depend on the location and era. Pre-1940s would be stripes and chained together while working on a road or other construction project. Present day could be blaze orange and picking up litter, or doing basic grounds maintenance in a park or at a rest stop.

You will most likely have some painting and detailing involved. I don't know of any "ready to serve time" prison figures being offered by the manufacturers. You could try to make a plea with Just Plain Folks Dad. He reads postings here, and sometimes posts things himself.

Best of luck,
