A police officer guards detainees at a children’s playground in a public park in Bogota, Colombia, Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014.

The prisoners, who are detained for alleged crimes ranging from robbery to drug trafficking, are guarded by groups of six police officers who switch after eight hour shifts.
