The purpose of prison?

Like the city hospital, another built structure common in cities is the prison. At present (April 2017) out of a total of nearly 85,517 prisoners in England & Wales, only 70 have whole life terms, meaning the vast majority of the prison population will be released back into the community at some time. Perhaps we should remember this fact when we consider a prisoners experience behind bars! Of course this is part of the debate on what is the purpose of the prison?
