In the U.S. we have a federal Bureau of Prisons, and some other agencies that publish design standards for prisons-- size and shape of cells; recreation area per inmate; in-wall cigarette lighters to prevent fire starting; toilet/sink conbinations; careful design of anything like a hook, or ledge that one can be hung on; furniture needs to be bolted down; windows must be of certain size, but must be unbreakable. Also, we have some series of books called TIME SAVERS STANDARDS, and ARCHITECTURAL GRAPHIC STANDARDS, that contain information of similar type-- but overall there are specific requirements set out for the features required.
