ALCATRAZ is the infamous maximum-security prison for Mafia criminals and high risk convicts.

Although the island is only 1 mile from shore, there is no evidence of any successful escapes across the icy bay.
The prison was the only one in the federal system that touted hot shows-a luxury designed to keep prisoners from acclimating to cold water.
