General Information
Credits Author: Maxis

The Federal Prison is a Civic and Business Deal building that increases the number of Jail Cells in your city and provides a monthly income for its presence, improving the performance of Police Stations in high-crime cities and helping a failing city to break even.

The Federal Prison is the cheapest Crime facility in SimCity 4, as it is a Business Deal, and only serves to provide more cells to hold criminals. It's not needed in most cities as the number of cells provided by your police stations will usually be enough, but in particularly high-crime cities you may need additional cells, a service the Federal Prison is designed to provide. It will only be offered as a solution to a budget deficit by a private enterprise and you can only have one per city.

The Federal Prison does not provide Police Protection in your cities, nor does it provide any dispatchable vehicles.

In Cell Count, it is positioned above the Jail and is unsurpassed.
