The Desk as it Appears in Game.
The desk is a place where the player can store items in (up to 20 items in the slots). Desks are in every cell so the player can easily steal from other inmate's desks.
If you're checking the desk and while a guard is patrolling the area, he will attack you (and increase your current guard heat).
You can pick up a desk by right clicking on it. It's very helpful if you want to cover a hole for digging or to climb to the vents
If the Player stores contraband in a desk during Shakedown of that desk, they will trace it back to you and you will be sent to solitary confinement.
The desk can be found in your cell, other inmates cell, janitor room, or anywhere around the prison. In Jungle Compound you can also find ID papers in the uncoppied desk.
