Students interested in corrections or those with an interest in the manner in which punishment is conducted in the state of Florida will find the virtual tour of several areas of Florida's prisons informative and useful. The Florida Department of Corrections has provided virtual tours of a prison compound (this one is of the open area in the housing section of a prison), a secure cell, a death row cell, an open bay dormitory, and the open area (or day room area) of a closed cell housing unit.
One just has to click on a picture depicting the area of the prison you would like to view and immediately a 360 degree view of your selection is shown. Additionally, there are links to additional information below each of the virtual tours that supplement what you are viewing.
This is a really nice way to show criminal justice students the inside of a typical prison without having to take a field trip. I also really liked the faq page; even though it is specific to Florida, much of the information is relevant for prisons in other states as well.
All the links worked, and I liked that I could go from one part of the virtual tour to the next without having to back all the way out.
