Is there any countries where different grades of prison are named very differnetly? For most places I imagin if this needs to be tagged it can be an addional tag, rather than there being a range of abutters for the differnt grades of prison.

Also if there is a vote, could it be stuck on teh proposed features page when it starts and ends? Ben. 18:24 18th Decemeber 2006 (UTC)

What about the area arround the prison building, that can be pretty big. landuse=prison perhaps ? --Onion 07:14, 8 June 2007 (BST)

Disused prisons?

How should one tag prisons that are now just tourist attractions or museums? Samwilson 03:53, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Area?

I think it should be possible to tag an area with the prison tag. Outline the fence or something.--Bengibollen 18:31, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

This is indeed essential, as prison grounds are usually off-limits for the general public. Should this be landuse=? or something --Pfr 12:53, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

I am trying to trace a "correctional village", that is a large prison ground with several prisons of various levels of security as well as a more open village inside. I am now putting the tag landuse=prison on the ground, and amenity=prison on the various parts inside. --Skippern (talk) 14:17, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Landuse=prison far more logical


Why not building=prison? Rickyrab (talk) 20:13, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Still seems strange to refer to prisons as an "amenity".

So the amenity would be for the general public and not the criminals? Rickyrab (talk) 20:13, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
