In this Dec. 18, 2012 photo, Kathy Levick, center, directs a training session with inmates and veteran assistance dogs in training as officials look on at Western Correctional Institution in Cresaptown, Md. Levick visits the maximum-security prison once a week for two hours of instruction. Otherwise, the inmates - model prisoners housed in a tier of cells reserved for the most trusted inmates - work with the dogs constantly. The dogs sleep in cages inside the inmates' 6-by-9-foot cells and accompany them to meals and activities. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)
