    The Aruba Prison

    Does anyone have information about the Prison? I drove past it yesterday and it just seems too large a facility for a small island like Aruba with a low crime rate.

    I believe it functions as a prison and a holding site, in the US you don't go to "prison" unless you are sentenced to a year or more and are held in "local" facilities while awaiting trial or serving shorter sentences. I beleive the Aruba facilities handles both these functions, and possibly the funtions of immagration "holds" as well. I do not know this as a fact, but speculating on what I read. Unlike the US prisons I have never heard anything about over crowding
