Abstract

The article offers a modification of the routine activities theory to account for high rates of inmate gambling during incarceration, despite surveillance from corrections staff. The theory suggests that the presence of capable guardians with professional responsibility for rule enforcement should lead to a high degree of conformity to prison rules. It is concluded that the theory can benefit from a deeper consideration of the complexities between potential deviant actors and control agents.
