The Avoyelles Parish County Jail that you see today opened its doors back in July of 1985. The facility cost nearly $4.5 million. The funding for this facility was provided by Proposition 4. This was the first of three funding measures when it comes to jails.
Two of these dorms can hold up to 92 inmates each. The other one of the dorms can hold up to 44 inmates. The facility also has one maximum-security housing unit that can hold up to 32 inmates. The facility includes three medium-security dorms.
The Avoyelles Parish Women’s Correctional Center will house inmates who have a sentence of two years or less. If an inmate is sentenced to more than two years, they will be transferred out to state prison within Louisiana. The Avoyelles Parish Women’s Correctional Center is made up of mainly of inmates who are currently waiting for their trial to start, inmates who are going through their trial, and inmates who are waiting to be sentenced. There are a number of inmates who are currently serving out their sentence in the facility as well.
They all have a correctional officer station inside each of the housing dorms, with another indirect supervision from the housing booth as well. All dormitory housing units are direct-supervision style.
