The high rise jails/detention centers that one can find in various American cities seem to be a type of building that is unique to the US (and Canada). I've yet to see any outside the US/Canada and as unique structures they seem to produce unique architecture. One rarely encounters a high rise that is designed to keep people in. In this thread I hope we can share photos of those high rise jails/detention centers that we find interesting and unique.

A few to start:
