Abandoned Broward Correctional Institution-Womens Prison

The Broward Correctional Institution closed May of last year (2012) when the Secretary of Florida Corrections decided to send most female inmates to Lowell correctional in Ocala due to low occupancy and high cost of upkeep for other jails. This property located out in western broward county is now abandoned. Although these are not my photos, they are from a fellow Urbexer (credits below) who I went with on a later date when the gates and doors were unfortunately locked up.
We were only on property for approximately 20 minutes when a van rolled up and a corrections department maintenance worker asked what we were doing. He explained that we were not welcome on this property and needed to leave. So unfortunately we left. The property is completely open up until the prison gates. My pictures are not posted here. Here are the remaining photos....
