This article discusses issues related to integrated security systems in jails. If display windows are break and separation-resistant, they can provide security, natural day lighting and energy efficiency. Designed by KKE Architects Inc., a project also received the Governor's Award for Excellence in Waste and Pollution Prevention from the Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance, where Steele County earned a blue ribbon as one of the top five projects in the state for the geothermal system and borrowed light in the jail. Steele County was the first Minnesota correctional facility to be approved for a so called "borrowed light design," reflecting a new interpretation by the American Correctional Association regarding windows.
