The federal prison complex in Florence is one of the nation’s largest, consisting of three separate units — a medium security corrections institution, a high-security penitentiary and an Administrative Maximum security facility, or “Supermax.”
“The Alcatraz of the Rockies,” the facility is the only federal Supermax in the United States, built to house the nation’s most violent prisoners.
