Prison and blue sky.

Prison and Probation Service of Finland is in charge of eleven regional Prison and Probation Centres, which consist of 28 prisons.

Prisoners serve their sentence either in a closed prison or in an open prison. The prisoner places are divided so that 70% are in closed prisons and 30% in open prisons or units. Prisoners, who are deemed to adapt to the freer conditions than the conditions in closed prisons, are placed in open institutions.
