    The prison management is baffled

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    The prison management is baffled how a prisoner has managed to break out without help from outside.

    You will also see "The prison management are ...".

    I would actually say "The prison managers are baffled by how a prisoner managed to escape with no outside help."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
