The Avoyelles Parish Bunkie Detention Center was first constructed back in July of 1956 under the supervision of Sheriff Ross Boyer. The cost of this newly constructed facility was nearly $318,000. This also included an apartment for Boyer along with his family on the second floor of the facility. Boyer lived on the second floor of the jail until July of 1962. This was due to the fact that staffing of the facility was increasing and the need for him to live right above the jail was diminishing.
Not all inmates are residents of Avoyelles Parish County, as the facility works closely with many law enforcement agencies on a state, local, and federal level. This facility does not house any juveniles. This facility will house adult male and adult female inmates. The McHenry County Jail is a medium-security detention center.
Inmates in the Avoyelles Parish Bunkie Detention Center will either be waiting for their trial to begin or they will be serving out their sentence in the facility.
As of today, they will be able to house close to 1,700 inmates on a permanent basis. The facility not only has a maximum-security portion of the jail (main jail), but they also have four housing tents, mental health and medical facility, and a women’s jail as well.
The Avoyelles Parish Bunkie Detention Center is accredited by the Louisiana Corrections Accreditation Commission.
