The facility was built back in November of 1991. The jail section of the building had to be approved by the State Department of Corrections. It was approved to house nearly 49 long-term inmates, 9 48-hour inmates, and 2 4-hour inmates, which brings the total up to a grand total of 72 inmates at one time.
