    Yes, in Britain it can be a remand/home/centre or a borstal. Borstal is for people between 16 and 22.

    Is there such thing as "open ward prison"?? or is it just my imagination?

    For people who don't pay their penalty fees, are convicted of minor crimes or get acclimitised to more civilian circumstancies before they are freed.
    (was my question correctly put???)
