It is clear that the presence of gangs in prisons means that COs working in these environments can be particularly vulnerable to becoming drawn into these kinds of relationships. Gang members doing time will nearly always have criminal associates or potential accomplices in the outside world.

In California, the Mexican Mafia, a longstanding prison gang, effectively exercises control over a host of Southern California street gangs from within various facilities (Skarbek 2014).

Meeting emotional, rather than material, need is the objective in many instances, reflecting desires for attachment and emotional closeness (Faulkner and Regehr 2011), or for recognition (CPNI 2013).
