|Tools for this tag|
A building or other facility to which people are legally committed as punishment for a crime or while awaiting trial.
Draw the prison as closed way for the prison's outline (land in preference to buildings).
Draw it as a single node if you only know the vague position of the prison, but not its outline.
Only tag each prison once, there is no point in having both a node and closed way for the same prison.
