Prison

A prison is a facility that is designed to hold individuals who have been convicted of a crime and are serving a sentence. Prisons are typically run by the government, and are intended to be places of punishment and rehabilitation. Inmates in prison are typically not allowed to leave the facility unless they are granted parole or are released at the end of their sentence. Prisons are often highly-secured and controlled environments, with strict rules and regulations designed to maintain order and safety. The conditions in prisons can vary depending on the country and the specific facility.
