Tropico Wiki

The dungeon is an Espionage building in Espionage (T5 DP). When built, it allows the "Arrest" action for citizens as early as the Colonial Era.

It is has almost exactly the same function as the Supermax Prison, and with Espionage installed, it is preferable because it only require illiterate Wardens rather than High School educated Police Officers and also has smaller footprint that allow them to be squeezed in tight spaces and more of them to be built easily.

Note that prisoners who are tagged as Rebels, Crime Lords, and Foreign Spies are still valid targets for automatic assassinations by the Drone Command and may still be killed by drone strikes which you didn't order while in their cells.

Upgrades

Interrogation Room ($2,000)- The police officers interrogate the arrested citizen, discovering citizens' roles in the area, depending on the prisoner count.

Punishment Chamber ($2,000)- Police officers arrest Rebel Leaders and Crime Lords on the island with out having an order from El Presidente.
