The Liberati contact for prisoners and getting info in and out of the prison is a cook. Don't shoot any cooks.
Prison guards live on-site, but no idea on whether support staff do or not.
Shift changes occur irregularly. If the Liberati have timed this poorly, we could wind up hitting during a shift change, with twice the armed opposition.
Prison guards are armed with an assortment of LETHAL weapons -- including a few tazers and even flamethrowers. Non-lethal weapons are typically limited to when the guards don't want to kill everyone in a block.
Prisoners wear orange one-piece coveralls. Guards are a mix of corpserfs and CEF/CID uniforms.
Though Falcon has no idea if there are any CID/CEF plants in the prison population, she assumes there are. If there are any plants, they're not likely going to be GREL, but SLEDGE. We may want to consider bringing extra weapons that we can arm the GREL with to give us a bit more force power if we have to go deeper into the building than we hope. They'll be acting on in-vitro reflex mostly, not so much hypnotraining (for obvious reasons.)
Other in-prison industries aside from digging are electronics and simple parts for the CEF.
