Not always. Central big police detention facilities are also used during demonstrations or large events like football matches and then people may be held even during several days. Also, here in Hesse the police runs the detention facility for deportees, which, however, is another borderline case due to the longer detention periods there... I'd tend to tag it as prison, not as police detention (https://www.polizei.hessen.de/dienststellen/polizeipraesidium-suedhessen/ueber-uns/broker.jsp?uMen=c4970ee1-825a-f6f8-6373-a91bbcb63046&_ic_uCon=b2050950-dce8-c761-560d-877101467e03&uTem=20470d14-3169-f841-ab27-2006165474d5)
